26. März 2013
With robots, we are inventing a new species that is part material and part digital. The ambition of modern robotics goes beyond copying humans, beyond the effort to make walking, talking androids that are indistinguishable from people. Future robots will have superhuman abilities in both the physical and digital realms. They will be embedded in our physical spaces, with the ability to go where we cannot, and will have minds of their own, thanks to artificial intelligence. They will be fully connected to the digital world, far better at carrying out online tasks than we are. In Robot Futures, the roboticist Illah Reza Nourbakhsh considers how we will share our world with these creatures, and how our society could change as it incorporates a race of stronger, smarter beings. Nourbakhsh imagines a future that includes adbots offering interactive custom messaging; robotic flying toys that operate by means of "gaze tracking"; robot-enabled multimodal, multicontinental telepresence; and even a way that nanorobots could allow us to assume different physical forms. Nourbakhsh follows each glimpse into the robotic future with an examination of the underlying technology and an exploration of the social consequences of the scenario. Each chapter describes a form of technological empowerment -- in some cases, empowerment run amok, with corporations and institutions amassing even more power and influence and individuals becoming unconstrained by social accountability. (Imagine the hotheaded discourse of the Internet taking physical form.) Nourbakhsh also offers a counter-vision: a robotics designed to create civic and community empowerment. His book helps us understand why that is the robot future we should try to bring about.

"The best parts of the book are the crazy scenarios Nourbakhsh comes up with -- like malfunctioning eye-controlled toy helicopters and robot-enabled infidelity. His preference for a future in which robots are employed to serve communities, not individuals or corporations, is innovative -- if less fun than the nightmare robots that populate his chapters." -- Slate "In robotics, there is a fine line between science fiction and science fact. Illah Reza Nourbakhsh turns out to be a master of straddling that line. In this accessible, smart book, he suggests how plausible robot futures could change our lives." -- George Annas, New Scientist "Concise and illuminating with few detours into engineering-speak, this book will interest a broad technology-minded audience, from future scientists to data analysts to entrepreneurs." -- Publishers Weekly

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and thought provoking 17. April 2013
Von John - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Starting with a well-written, accessible review of the current state of robotics research and development, Nourbakhsh explores the potential effects on individuals and society of probable near-term developments in robotics. i particularly liked his technique of starting each chapter with a fictional scenario as a way to leapfrog the reader into a consideration of various issues surrounding human-robot interaction. Regardless of how you feel about it, intelligent machines are becoming an increasing presence in everyday life (just think about Siri, smart-phones, directed advertising, etc.). We are overdue for a reasoned consideration of the practical and ethical considerations this raises, rather than a piecemeal approach to particular issues as they arise (such as laws against texting while driving, or lawsuits over Google's intrusions on privacy while creating StreetView). So far, this holistic approach has only been done in science fiction, with a presumption that the technology involved is set in some distant future. Nourbakhsh convincingly presents a probable time line for changes occurring over the next 10-30 years that will bring these human/bot interaction issues to a head. This book provides a good jumping off spot for a discussion of both practical realities and underlying ethics among a more general audience.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Study likely scenarios. 9. Mai 2013
Von RichardAlexanderGreen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Robot Futures contains a set of likely scenarios. Each scenario demonstrates the very real possibility of an ethical, economic, or social issue associated with the use of robots.

While the title is "Robot Futures", I hasten to add that these futures will be within most reader`s lifetimes. There are no speculative technologies involved in these scenarios. All are under current development and their release into our environement is just a question of technology and market trends.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not What I Expected - Good for Anthropologists 10. Dezember 2013
Von Steve Keifer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was not what I expected. I was looking for a book that would provide a vision how the world will change with the introduction of robots into mainstream society over the next fifty to one hundred years. We are already witnessing a wave of emerging technologies reaching the market - unmanned drones that can deliver packages for; toy robots that teach children the basics of software programming; self-driving cars that can parallel park by themselves. While the author does offer some examples of how robots will be used in everyday lives in the future, this is less than 5% of the content of the book.

Instead, the majority of the discussion focuses on the societal, ethical and legal implications of mainstream robotics. Think topics such as: Who is responsible if a self-driving Google powered car gets in an accident? What happens when a drone programmed by the US military kills innocent civilians? Will there be a societal backlash against robots with people attempting to harm or destroy them?

I would recommend this book for someone who is already familiar with robotics and its applications in the commercial and consumer space. Anthropologists, criminologists and others interested in the impact of technology on society.

4.0 von 5 Sternen very good résumé of current challenges in robotics 9. Mai 2013
Von Albert Yefimov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I like this book because it has very good explanation of current research agenda in modern robotics. Little scifi stories before each chapter makes it lively.
Recommended read for. Everyone interested in general robotics

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Book 3. Mai 2013
Von Jason Carr, M.Ed. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed Dr. Nourbakhsh's book thoroughly. He does a fantastic job of not only explaining principles of robotics and A.I., but paints a realistic vision of the future, including the future that might go wrong if we are not careful today. I highly recommend this book.
