4.0 von 5 Sternen Accessible, entertaining overview of AI research
Most of us know of HAL, the famous (some would insist, infamous) supercomputer of Kubrick's sci-fi opus "2001: A Space Odyssey." In this book, editor David Stork uses HAL as a hypothetical reference point to present differing views on how the science of artificial intelligence might some day approximate the higher-order thinking of HAL.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Accessible, entertaining overview of AI research, 3. Mai 2000
Most of us know of HAL, the famous (some would insist, infamous) supercomputer of Kubrick's sci-fi opus "2001: A Space Odyssey." In this book, editor David Stork uses HAL as a hypothetical reference point to present differing views on how the science of artificial intelligence might some day approximate the higher-order thinking of HAL.
The writers represent diverse fields -- from philosophy to engineering to communications. That is a plus, for many similar efforts are too heavily biased in the highly technical "hard" science perspectives. Another admirable feature of this book is that the authors all write in a fairly straightforward, easy to understand style. One gets the impression that they were all forewarned not to "get too technical" with the readers. The result is an enjoyable overview of where artificial intelligence research has brought us, and where it might go. Interestingly, not all chapters are optimistic. Indeed, several conclude that we may be a very long way off from a computer like HAL, and one asserts that such replication of human thought (and emotion) would be an impossible task. This is a welcome chage of pace from the often "gushy" optimistic meanderings presented in books about pioneering technology. And finally, even if you didn't like (or didn't see) "2001," the book still informs and entertains.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dave...Don't Stop!, 11. August 1997
Prior to attending a lecture by Dr. David Stork at a celebration of HAL 9000's birthday in Urbana, Illinois, I had only a passing interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence. After the lecture, I was motivated to learn more and bought a copy of his book, Hal's Legacy: 2001's Computer As Dream and Reality. It turned out to be one of the most thought-provoking as well as entertaining books I have read.

Through a series of expert essays, Stork explores the current state and direction of Artificial Intelligence using HAL as both backdrop and benchmark.

Non-technical readers will enjoy the way that the scientists that Stork has chosen present their theories of what it would take for us to realize Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke's vision of HAL.

HAL's Legacy analyzes the prospects and possibilities of computers being able to converse, understand natural language, visualize, feel emotion, and even make value judgements. It also give the reader a new appreciation of the science that went into the science fiction of the movie 2001.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book for people into technology or computing, 10. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This book was featured as a IEEE Book Pick in IEEE Spectrum Magazine. After ordering it, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It combines the latest breakthroughs in electrical engineering and computer science with the fascinating work of Arthur C. Clarke's "2001: A Space Odyssey". The 2001 movie is now one of my favorite movies because of the fantastic writing in this book. You can read each chapter almost as a small book as the book is well-organized into separate chapters for each topic. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a medium to high level of interest in technology. The cover art, color pictures, and glossy pages make this book a keeper, and a pleasure to thumb through.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating account of progress of artificial intelligence, 30. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This is a well written and easy to understand book about artificial intelligence. This book examines "2001: A Space Odyssey," from the standpoint of scientific predictions. It examines the central character of the book - HAL 9000, the highly intelligent computer that has emotions. It explores questions such as whether HAL can be built, why is HAL late for his party and how the technologies, enabling HAL, are progressing. It also examines the feature film from the view point of a scientist. It examines the making of the film and shows how faithfulness it is to science. You will gain a much greater appreciation of the book "2001: A Space Odyssey" and the epic film after you read the book

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction to Artificial Intelligence., 27. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Although a major purpose of the book is to examine the
present status of computer capabilities available
compared to what was projected in this classic movie, there
is a more important side-effect. Stork has persuaded some
of the top computer science experts to describe, in understandable language, the major fields of Artificial
Intelligence, without the usual hype. It is the best book
I have read that informs the lay public so well.
The desciption of the state-of-the-art in computer
science ought to be sufficiently exciting to induce some
high level producer to make a sequel of this movie!

I was very distracted by the poor editing of this book. Not only was it riddled with spelling errors but I also found misplaced words which changed the meaning of an entire sentence. On top of that, the book started falling apart before I was even done reading it.
However, getting by these symptoms of a quickly thrown together book, the content was very enjoyable. Specifically reading from some of the top minds in the industry. Although a few of the authors obviously clipped out previously written material and slapped the word 'HAL' in a few places to keep with the theme.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An insightful look at the future of supercomputing, 21. August 1998
I found "Hal's Legacy" to be an insightful and compelling look at the future of supercomputing, as well as the increasing role of computers in our lives today. It asks top scientists and social visionaries the question: How close or far are we to creating the HAL envisioned by Kubrick and Clarke in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey?" I highly recommend it.
