Dear roboticists:

Robotics Through Science Fiction: Artificial Intelligence Explained Through Six Classic Robot Short Stories (MIT Press) is now available in kindle https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__tinyurl.com_RTSFbook&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vvcC_M9NSA9Ta1ANOWc-S1OKnX0VqFyhjA4ckRvt8Ng&s=ZgyUwbq9fhJu18G583OGUrGVd7J-5ppZHgeeyql_tsY&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__tinyurl.com_RTSFbook&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=vvcC_M9NSA9Ta1ANOWc-S1OKnX0VqFyhjA4ckRvt8Ng&s=ZgyUwbq9fhJu18G583OGUrGVd7J-5ppZHgeeyql_tsY&e=> and other electronic book formats. It can be used as a supplemental textbook for engineers, an introductory text for non-engineers, or just for fun reading. Each story serves as a case study to explore the state of art, which is discussed in the commentary following each story. The topics covered are: telepresence, behavior-based robotics, deliberation, testing, human-robot interaction, the “uncanny valley,” natural language understanding, machine learning, and ethics. The book is also a companion to the forthcoming second edition of “Introduction to AI Robotics.” The stories are by Asimov, Aldiss, Dick, and Vinge.

I hope you will enjoy it!

Robin
