This classic science fiction masterwork by Isaac Asimov weaves stories about robots, humanity, and the deep questions of existence into a novel of shocking intelligence and heart. “A must-read for science-fiction buffs and literature enjoyers alike.”—The Guardian I, Robot, the first and most widely read book in Asimov’s Robot series, forever changed the world’s perception of artificial intelligence. Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-reading robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world—all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asimov’s trademark. The Three Laws of Robotics: 1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov formulated the laws governing robots’ behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future—a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete. “Tremendously exciting and entertaining . . . Asimov dramatizes an interesting question: How can we live with machines that, generation by generation, grow more intelligent than their creators and not eventually clash with our own invention?”—The Chicago Tribune

Inspired by Science Fiction Grand Master Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot stories. 2037: Robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical entities. But despite the safeguards programmed into the very core of a robot’s artificial intelligence, humanity’s most brilliant creation can still fall prey to those who believe the Three Laws of Robotics were made to be broken... N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital’s resident robot for more than twenty years. A prototype, humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate’s very existence terrified most people, leaving the robot utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored. Until one of the hospital’s physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse, a blood-smeared utility bar clutched in his hand. As designer and programmer of Nate’s positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation’s actions and arrested for the crime. Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate’s and Lawrence’s innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder...

**A Daily Mail Book of the Year and Sunday Times bestseller** What happens on the pitch is only half the story. Being a footballer is not just kicking a ball about with twenty-one other people on a big grass rectangle. Sometimes being a footballer is about accidentally becoming best mates with Mickey Rourke, or understanding why spitting is considered football’s most heinous crime. In How to be a Footballer, Peter Crouch took us into a world of bad tattoos and even worse haircuts, a world where you’re on the pitch one minute, spending too much money on a personalised number plate the next. In I, Robot, he lifts the lid even further on the beautiful game. We will learn about Gareth Bale’s magic beans, the Golden Rhombus of Saturday night entertainment, and why Crouchy’s dad walks his dog wearing an England tracksuit from 2005. Whether you’re an armchair expert, or out in the stands every Saturday, crazy for five-a-side or haven’t put on a pair of boots since school, this is the real inside story of how to be a footballer.

Susan Calvin is about to enter her second year as a psych resident at the Manhattan Hasbro teaching hospital when a violent crime strikes very close to home. When she was young, Susan lost her mother in a terrible car wreck that also badly injured her father. She now believes the accident was orchestrated by government officials who wanted her parents dead. Susan has always known there was a faction of the U.S. government that wanted to hijack her father’s work for military use. Now it seems that faction is back. As she struggles to overcome her pain and confusion, as well as deal with her studies, Susan finds herself hunted by violent antitech vigilantes who would revert mankind to the Dark Ages—and at the same time she’s being watched very closely by extremists who want high-tech genocide. Somehow she must find a way to stop them both.

Learn about artificial intelligence and human-robot interaction by reading nine famous short stories, each accompanied by an explanation of the real science at the level of a TED talk.Artificial intelligence for robots may be the most transformative technology of the future digital revolution. But AI isn't just about the algorithms on the inside of the robot, it is also about how those algorithms will impact how we humans will work with robots. This critical field of study is called human-robot interaction: how we give commands to robots either explicitly or implicitly, how well they will be able to follow our directions and intent, and whether artificial intelligence will really lead to a robot uprising.Learn AI and Human-Robot Interaction from Asimov's I, Robot Stories provides an introduction to human-robot interaction for the layperson, from advanced high school students to managers to fans of Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson to students and teachers looking for a supplemental textbook for formal courses in artificial intelligence and robotics. It is a companion to Isaac Asimov's I, Robot collection of his most famous and entertaining stories in the world about robots, including the one that introduced the Three Laws of Robotics. Each of the stories unintentionally illustrates one or more core concepts in human-robot interaction: how verbal and non-verbal communication works; the flaws in the Three Laws of Robotics; the Uncanny Valley; transparency and visibility; trust; how robots reason; the types of user interfaces; and if a robot can have full moral agency. In this companion book, each I, Robot story is accompanied by description of how the science behind the core concept works at the level of a TED talk. In the last chapter, the book pulls together the principles illustrated in the different stories into a comprehensive overview of the field of human-robot interaction, highlighting the challenges, and opportunities, of building artificially intelligent systems and the ethical implications. The book also provides study questions that can be used for self-study, home schooling, or in a classroom. Prof. Robin R. Murphy is one of the founders of the field of human-robot interaction, an award winning textbook author, a TED talk speaker, and has been declared one of the 30 Most Innovative Women Professors Alive Today by The Best Master's Degrees and one of the most influential women in technology. Her interest in human-robot interaction resulted from her field work in using robots for disaster response. As she participated in disasters such as the 9/11 World Trade Center, Hurricane Harvey, and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, she documented that the robots physically worked but there was an unusually high rate of human error, frustration, and fatigue. Murphy frequently appears on CNN, NBC, NPR, Popular Science, NY Times, and the popular press. As an Innovative Teaching Faculty Fellow at Texas A&M, she pursues more engaging forms of education, particularly the use of science fiction to enable students to better visualize the abstract concepts in artificial intelligence, how the algorithms actually work, what would be the impact on systems design, and explore the ethics of artificial intelligence. This resulted in her Robotics Through Science Fiction blog, her book 2018 book Robotics Through Science Fiction: Artificial Intelligence Explained Through Six Classic Robot Short Stories, and her ongoing column on science fiction and science fact for Science Robotics, one of the top scientific journals.
