Hans Moravec

The future of robots and human intelligence

This visionary book describes the new world that is coming into being. A world of intelligent and autonomous robots, a world populated by artificial minds performing with us, and sometimes better than us, the most varied tasks, a world in which intelligent automatons would magnify our knowledge and powers.

Hans Moravec is the author of the famous paradox that it is easier for the machine to simulate intellectual processes and complex reasoning than to reproduce bodily abilities. A researcher at Carnegie-Mellon University, he is one of the most pioneering and recognized experts in the field of robotics.
