Flesh and Machines is a clear-sighted look into the technological future from the director of MIT's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Rodney A. Brooks. Brooks graphically depicts the history of robotic progress while he vividly speculates on a plausible, not-too-distant world in which robotic helpers will be able to think, feel, repair themselves, and even reproduce. But he doesn't stop there. Acknowledging the moral battle likely to ensue, he puts forth a lucid philosophical argument as to why we should not fear this change. The result is this fascinating book that offers a deeper understanding of who we are and how we can control what we will become.
