About this book
Explores one of the key technologies of the modern world, not only its successes, but also where it has failed to live up to the predictions of the 1950s and 60s.
Robotics is a key technology in the modern world. Yet, despite these successes, robots have failed to live up to the predictions of the 1950s and 60s. In this Very Short Introduction, Alan Winfield considers how robotics can be both a success story and a disappointment, and how robots can be both ordinary and quite remarkable.
