How robots will revolutionise our world
Some fear that robots could do half our jobs and even wipe us out. But is that likely? Hallo Robot reveals how robots see, feel, and act — and what they can and can't do.
Instead of harming humans, artificial intelligence could vastly improve our lives. Robots already make our cars and clean our homes. Soon they could chauffeur us, teach our children, and keep our parents company.
While tackling ethical concerns, the authors Bennie Mols and Nieske Vergunst show how robots could allow the lame to walk again, rescue survivors from collapsed buildings, and boost the global fight against hunger and pollution.
Welcome to a realistic, colourful view of our robot future. An ideal book for techie teenagers and curious adults.With 60 colour photos.
