Emotion and I Am A Robot (Combined Story Pack): Kenneth Guthrie
Die Idee, künstliches Leben zu erschaffen, hat Science-Fiction-Autoren schon früh fasziniert. Und die Frage: Was, wenn sich unsere Geschöpfe gegen uns wenden? Siehe ´Frankenstein´. Menschlicher Fortschrittsglaube spiegelte sich in der Idee von Robotern. Douglas Trumbull spricht über seine ganz speziellen Roboter in ´Lautlos im Weltall´. Und Schauspieler Anthony Daniels erzählt von der Entstehungsgeschichte des wohl berühmtesten Roboterpaares: R2D2 und 3-CPO aus ´Stars Wars´. Schließlich spricht in historischen Aufnahmen Schriftsteller Isaac Asimov über seine Vision eines Verschmelzens von Mensch und Maschine.

The first robot to walk the earth was a bronze giant called Talos. This wondrous machine was created not by MIT Robotics Lab, but by Hephaestus, the Greek god of invention. More than 2,500 years ago, long before medieval automata, and centuries before technology made self-moving devices possible, Greek mythology was exploring ideas about creating artificial life--and grappling with still-unresolved ethical concerns about biotechne, ´´life through craft.´´ In this compelling, richly illustrated book, Adrienne Mayor tells the fascinating story of how ancient Greek, Roman, Indian, and Chinese myths envisioned artificial life, automata, self-moving devices, and human enhancements--and how these visions relate to and reflect the ancient invention of real animated machines. A groundbreaking account of the earliest expressions of the timeless impulse to create artificial life, Gods and Robots reveals how some of today´s most advanced innovations in robotics and AI were anticipated in ancient myth--and how science has always been driven by imagination.
