Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Consider this: Robots will one day be able to write poetry and prose so touching that it will make men weep; compose dozens or even hundreds of symphonies that will rival the work of Mozart; judge a court case with absolute impartiality and fairness; or even converse with the natural ease of your best friend. Robots will one day be so life-like that a human could fall in love and marry one. Thought provoking and controversial? Certainly. Far-fetched? Not at all. David Levy presents the history of Artificial Intelligence, considers recent developments, and speculates about the future of AI. A complete bibliography is available here.

Book News Annotation:

Artificial intelligence (AI) expert Levy describes how early experiments in logic, games and speech led to others about thought, creativity, learning and translation. He discusses how AI devices play games, recognize visual input and speech, communicate, conduct sports, chauffeur, conduct search and rescue, perform surgery and help with medical diagnoses, work around the house and approach being humanoid. He concludes with well-grounded speculation about such advances as the DNA computer, nano-machines, models and applications of emotion, robot consciousness, and the development of robot rights and ethics.
