9780525426974: Our Robots, Ourselves: Robotics and the Myths of Autonomy
Críticas:

"A careful, measured extrapolation of contemporary technological trends." Booklist
Robots are no longer in a science fiction horizon. We re confronted with a world of drones and the threat of automated war; physicist Stephen Hawking warns that the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. David Mindell's essential book takes another view; it is required reading as we seriously engage one of the most important debates of our time. Sherry Turkle, author of "Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age"
" "Mindell s ingenious and profoundly original book will enlighten those who prophesy that robots will soon make us redundant, and challenges us all to think more precisely and creatively about how machines can augment human potential. David Autor, Professor of Economics, MIT
"Authoritative.... [Mindell] leaves us with a better understanding of what lies ahead for our daily lives." "Kirkus"
A lucid, hype-free exploration of how robotic automation really works in concert with human design, intention, and action. Ian Bogost, Ivan Allen College Distinguished Chair in Media Studies and Professor of Interactive Computing Professor, Scheller School of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology
My thanks to the author for bringing scholarship and sanity to a debate which has run off into a magic la-la land in the popular press. Rodney Brooks, founder Rethink Robotics and iRobot
A must read for those who aspire to be effective contributors to the robotics of our future. David R. Scott, Commander, Apollo 15"

Reseña del editor:

[An] essential book it is required reading as we seriously engage one of the most important debates of our time. Sherry Turkle, author of"Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age"
From drones to Mars rovers an exploration of the most innovative use of robots today and a provocative argument for the crucial role of humans in our increasingly technological future.
In "Our Robots, Ourselves, "David Mindell offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the cutting edge of robotics today, debunking commonly held myths and exploring the rapidly changing relationships between humans and machines.
Drawing on firsthand experience, extensive interviews, and the latest research from MIT and elsewhere, Mindell takes us to extreme environments high atmosphere, deep ocean, and outer space to reveal where the most advanced robotics already exist. In these environments, scientists use robots to discover new information about ancient civilizations, to map some of the world s largest geological features, and even to commute to Mars to conduct daily experiments. But these tools of air, sea, and space also forecast the dangers, ethical quandaries, and unintended consequences of a future in which robotics and automation suffuse our everyday lives.
Mindell argues that the stark lines we ve drawn between human and not human, manual and automated, aren t helpful for understanding our relationship with robotics. Brilliantly researched and accessibly written, "Our Robots, Ourselves" clarifies misconceptions about the autonomous robot, offering instead a hopeful message about what he calls rich human presence at the center of the technological landscape we are now creating."
