Robotics forecast: Cool with a chance of lost humanity
from Ars Technica
You might expect a book titled "Robot Futures" and written by a robotics researcher to be a whiz-bang prophecy of technologies that are the best thing since sliced bread. Soon we'll be living to 200 while traveling from vacation to vacation in our flying cars. All the while, robots handle all the parts of our jobs that we hated anyway, right? Maybe, but this book isn't the place to find it. There's plenty of speculation in it, but it's decidedly more pragmatic and sober than that.
