Contributory Info: The Bicentennial Man
After a lengthy search on the internet, the best synopsis I found of Asimov’s Bicentennial Man was, in fact, on wikipedia:
“The Bicentennial Man is a novella in the Robot Series by Isaac Asimov. It was awarded the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award for best science fiction novelette of 1976.
According to the foreword in Robot Visions, Asimov was approached to write a story titled “Bicentennial Man” for a science fiction collection, along with a number of other authors who would do the same, in honor of the bicentennial of the United States. However, the arrangement fell through, leaving Asimov’s the only story actually completed for the project.
The story formed the basis of the novel The Positronic Man (1993), co-written with Robert Silverberg, and the 1999 film Bicentennial Man, starring RobinWilliams.”
