Descripción del producto
"A book that will spark intense reactions and generate mind-twisting questions." -The Boston Globe"A stimulating book written by one of the major players in the field-perhaps the major player. . . . Offers surprisingly deep glimpses into what it is to be human." -The New York Times Book Review "Brooks . . . lucidly explores his life with robots....Flesh and Machines ranges far and wide, but remains unified by the author's passion."-Wired "Readers don't have to share Brooks' vision of the future to love reading his book, the imaginative work of a skilled yet genial provocateur."-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Brooks [is] the irrepressible Pied Piper of robotics." -Los Angeles Times "A considered and thought-provoking work. . . . This is the best kind of popular science book: The ideas are clear and accessible but not dumbed down."-American Scientist "A man-as-machine thesis that is presented accessibly and humanely." -Booklist

Told with the expertise of a ongoing participant Rodney Brooks is clear and especially well informed well beyond his clear knowledge of activity on MITs campus. He describes activity from Standford and CMU to Cornell and, of course, his own AI Lab at MIT. He also discusses succinctly the Japanese robotic effort and recent products by Sony.
For anyone wondering about emerging trends, the potential of robotics, or the potential of artifical intelligence (AI) this book is a treasure.
Each chapter includes a rich bibliography. My only issue
with the book is that it could have benefited from more illustrations and photos.
'Flesh and Machines' is well-written for a work of its type, with some welcome humor and wit interspersing the text. Substance-wise, I found most of the book to be insightful, intelligent, and, at times, downright fascinating. However, the book's discourse is, in my perception, hampered by several instances of incorrect logic, assumptions, or just plain narrow thinking. Normally these might not have been so disruptive, except that the author criticized these very same flaws in various people and doctrines cited within the text, lending an air of double-mindedness to the author's arguments (for instance, the book opens with the author mentioning his knack for identifying assumptions and then transgressing them, before himself making several blatant assumptions in the book). (Then again, who amongst us is without such imperfections and contradictions?) Still, I found 'Flesh and Machines' to contain enough solid logic (and imagination) to make it otherwise worthwhile, if not quite enjoyable (for me, at least). More than once, I agreed wholeheartedly with Mr. Brooks, as well as learning quite a bit.
So, a big thank-you to the book's author, subjects, and publisher. I have benefited from your work.
