Talking to Robots: Tales from Our Human-Robot Futures

Some brief overview of book

Award-winning journalist David Ewing Duncan considers 24 visions of possible human-robot futures-Incredible scenarios from Teddy Bots to Warrior Bots, and Politician Bots to Sex Bots-Grounded in real technologies and possibilities and inspired by our imagination. What robot and AI systems are being built and imagined right now? What do they say about us, their creators?

Will they usher in a fantastic new future, or destroy us? What do some of our greatest thinkers, from physicist Brian Greene and futurist Kevin Kelly to inventor Dean Kamen, geneticist George Church, and filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, anticipate about our human-robot future? For even as robots and A.I. intrigue us and make us anxious about the future, our fascination with robots has always been about more than the potential of the technology-it's also about what robots tell us about being human.
