This week’s Brain Food is from Vernor Vinge. He is one of the founding fathers of building our thinking on the technological singularity, that is when our technology will become more intelligent than us.
We look at the influence of the author who gave us a perspective on the tension between humans and the technology that becomes more intelligent than us. Films of his work include Blade Runner, Total Recall and the Adjustment Bureau.
I, Robot, written by Issac Asimov is a rare book, the ideas and concepts it put forward influenced both science fiction and real science and the development of robotics. This anniversary gives us an opportunity to think about it.
