No, Robot, No!
The role of robots in our present and future is ever in flux. They are, and have been: dolls, toys, servants, pets, experiments, weapons, carers, companions. They threaten to replace us, to exceed us, to exterminate us. And we for our part go on remaking them – in our minds as much as in labs and lairs.
Let No, Robot, No! act as your portable guide to the poetics of AI, automata and digital sentience. Hack into it. Overhaul and overload it. Keep it near you like a whirring clockwork heart.
148pp, ISBN 9781909560277
The robots are not just coming – they’re already here. No, Robot, No! is your all-whirring, all-processing guide to robots, AI and digital consciousness. From cyborgs to love machines, ethics to algorithms, Wall-E to Roomba, this inquisitive handbook delves into the wires of our lives with machines. No.3 in the Headbooks series.
Headbooks: headlong expeditions into the half-known. A blend of the factual and fantastical, the lyrical and the visual – and fully customisable, with scrapbook and do-it-yourself pages.
