i agree that it's possible... hopefully any AI will follow Asimov's Laws of Robots

First Law:
A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

Second Law:
A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

Third Law:
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

and the self-aware machine first came about, in my knowledge, in Heinlein's novel "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress." i suggest it for reading.

How can a robot follow these principles when it will obey any command initially programmed? ie, those above rules might not be programmed into the machine.
