Popular Mechanics Robots: A New Age of Bionics, Drones & Artificial Intelligence by Daniel H. Wilson
Thanks to film and literature, the idea of robots and artificial intelligence has long intrigued us. The fascination continues with Popular Mechanics Robots, which gathers the very best of the magazine's fantastic robotic coverage and examines the way we live with these machines today - and how we will continue to exist with other advanced technologies in the future. Readers can now discover all varieties of robot, including ones that recognize our faces, gestures, and emotions; drive our cars; serve as highly intelligent personal assistants and medical diagnosticians; go into space; and even become embedded in our architecture and homes. Although robots can inspire both fear and wonder, author David H. Wilson shows how they're not Terminators about to end our days...but the beginning of a brave new world.
