Talking to Robots

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Visions of robot futures that feature bots such as robot drivers, the bot that will take your job, psychiatrist and doc bots, sex bots, priest bots, the first robot president, and bot servants; also playthings that in some cases bring out the worst in people; synthetic bio bots that are copies of us; and dystopic bots that may treat us like pets, or worse. Scenarios start with discussions with well-known thinkers, engineers, scientists and philosophers, and their ruminations on future robots and AI systems that they want to meet - or fear to meet - and why. These discussions, along with some examination of bot-tech, bot-history and real-time societal and ethical/moral issues with robots, are the launch pads for unfurling imagined bot futures. The book will describe how various bots work as machines, but also what they say about us as humans. We are at a pivotal moment when our infatuation with human-like beings with certain attributes or super-powers in mythology, religion and sci-fi, is now coinciding with our ability to build these entities for real, so Talking to Robots comes at the perfect moment. David Duncan has interviewed the likes of Kevin Kelly, Stephen Hawking, Brian Greene, Sherry Turkle, Alex Garland, Stephen Pinker, Dean Kaman, Ray Kurzweil, Michio Kaku, Elon Musk, Craig Venter and others. He has researched the topic intensively but wears his knowledge lightly in this dazzlingly thought-provoking, illuminating and entertaining book. Talking to Robots will bring the future to life like no other book in this sphere.

Midnight in Siberia: A Train Journey into the H...

After two and a half years as NPR’s Moscow bureau chief, David Greene travels across the country - a 6,000 mile journey by rail, from Moscow to the Pacific port of Vladivostok - to speak with ordinary Russians about how their lives have changed in the post-Soviet years. Reaching beyond the headline-grabbing protests in Moscow, Green speaks with a group of singing babushkas from Buranovo, a teenager hawking ´´space rocks” from last spring’s meteor shower in Chelyabinsk, and activists battling for environmental regulation in the pollution-choked town of Baikalsk. Through the stories of fellow travelers, Greene explores the challenges and opportunities facing the new Russia: a nation that boasts open elections and newfound prosperity yet still continues to endure oppression, corruption, and stark inequality. Set against the wintery landscape of Siberia, Greene’s lively travel narrative offers a glimpse into the soul of 20th century Russia: how its people remember their history and look forward to the future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Greene. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/high/000882/bk_high_000882_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

My First Memory
18,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MEMORY? Or, rather, what do you imagine to be your earliest memory ? Perhaps, alternatively, there was a moment during childhood when the world´s axis shifted? A transformative realisation, epiphany or experience that changed the course of your life: your very own ´ sense of a beginning´ ... In My First Memory , bestselling anthologist Ben Holden explores these touchstones via the watershed experiences of some of the greatest figures of our age. Along the way, he lightly explores how memory and childhood merge to form identity . How, in the process, we not only create individual origin-stories but also, on a broader level, fashion human history. The first memories of iconic figures - from Machiavelli to Freud, Einstein to Hawking, Churchill to Luther King, Pankhurst to Angelou, Pavarotti to Springsteen, and Pelé to Bolt - combine with exclusive, personal pieces by some of today´s greatest writers, scientists and thinkers: the likes of Sebastian Barry, Melvyn Bragg, David Eagleman, Susan Greenfield, Tessa Hadley, Javier Marías, Michael Morpurgo and the late Ursula K Le Guin . The trip down memory lane is heightened by the remembrances of refugees: from heroic figures such as Madeleine Albright, Isabel Allende, Alf Dubs, Yusra Mardini, Elie Wiesel and Stefan Zweig to lesser-known but no less courageous voices. Many of these moving accounts tell of children being forced to leave home and family behind forever. They may have grown up to lead inspirational lives - but none ever forgot from whence they came. After all, each of us must start somewhere and - as this timeless collection unforgettably proves - there is always a first time for everything. Praise for Poems That Make Grown Men Cry : ´Everyone who reads this collection will be roused: disturbed by the pain, exalted in the zest for joy given by poets´ Observer ´That´s the great thing about a good anthology of poems: you are reminded of old friends and introduced to new ones... This is a welcome addition to my shelves´ Sunday Telegraph ´A fascinating anthology. Finding out what makes particular men emotional is intriguing´ Irish Independent ´The title is pure genius... what I love most is the proud grasp of emotion as mature and manly. Two words that become magnificent in their juxtaposition: ´´men´´ and ´´cry´´´ Daily Mail ´This is a really thought-provoking book...The range of contributors leads to a wonderful range of verse. And the overall result is a wonderfully powerful and moving experience´ The Times
