I believe the OP would be more pleased by some of the Isaac Asimov / Robert Silverberg re-workings:
The Positronic Man
The Ugly Little Boy
Agree w/ everyone else to the effect that one has to judge Asimov by when he was writing and what had come before.
Moreover, ``if I have seen further it is because I stand on the shoulders of giants'' --- w/o him, there wouldn't be science fiction as we know it now --- he's a huge influence, directly or indirectly to pretty much every SF author now writing.
