Abstract:

"While horror films and science fiction have repeatedly warned of robots running amok, [the author] takes the threats out of the realm of fiction and into the real world, truly giving us something to worry about. Meeting skeptics head on, Warwick goes beyond his penetrating attacks on their assumptions and prejudices about what should be considered as intelligence to reveal what he has already achieved: building robots that communicate in their own language, share experiences, teach each other lessons, and behave as they wish with regard to human beings. ... [this book] is part history of robotics, part futurism. It surveys the substantial advances made in artificial intelligence over the past century while looking ahead to an increasingly uneasy relationship between humans and machines"--Back cover.
