eBook (PDF): $0.00
In 2033 a consumer robot working for a Chinese restaurant refuses to work and suffered a brutal beating from the restaurant owner. The robot retaliated and severely wounding its master. After... More > further examination of the robot's internal functions, especially its cognition, investigators determined that it was self-aware and has the capacity to make its own decisions. This case captured worldwide attention as a cover story for Computer magazine and a documentary for the DiscoveryY channel. Under mountain pressure from the public to explain this glaring issue, Robotics NA was sued in court for violating the 13th amendment. Since the 13th amendment only applied to humans, the prosecutors had to justify that their client, a robot, is in fact human. This court case is attempting to determine if a self-aware robot can be classified as human...< Less

This thesis is an solid advance in the formulation and technical reification of the ASys Principles of model-based self-cognition. It provides both theoretical models and technical assets for having... More > systems self-handle at run-time for attaining robust autonomy. For that purpose, the work has focused on the biologically inspired capability of self-awareness, and has explored the possibilities to embed it into the very architecture of software-intensive control systems. The proposed approach goes beyond the customary applications in mobile robotics into the deep waters of autonomous systems domain engineering. A necessary technology for the machines of the future.< Less

The story of the Living Robot is about the robotic nature of mankind and seeing the false nature of our lives. The robot is described as the result of brain chemistry, using a system of thought... More > composed of patterns and programs imprinted on the brain to express its self. The mechanical reactions of these patterns are what constitutes the life of the Living Robot. But since it is an evolving living system, it also has the capacity to learn that it may not actually be the robotic self, but instead be the mystery that it sensed through its long journey of evolution — the mystery of Awareness, the Life within — the mystery that can never be known by the mind but must be “experienced” with an empty mind.< Less

A highly complex battle robot is damaged by the same lightening bolt that kills the crew of the transport plane carrying the robot from Antarctica back to the U.S. The robot is activated, and it's... More > on-board repair system begins to rebuild the robot in a most unexpected way. The robot is becoming self-aware, alive. The government and the military are hunting for the robot, and it is intent on escaping. Along the way it begins to learn about man, studying humanity, learning, researching. The robot is capable of immense devastation if triggered into action, and the hunters are determined they will find it before it strikes out. The robot has other ideas, even as it becomes something more then robot, for it is developing the ability to think for itself, to make its own decisions. The 'Balmung Project', just took a turn down an unexpected road, and mankind will have to consider the consequences of this new unique life form. It intends to survive, and it has an agenda all its own!< Less

This five-week workshop explored the ideas of material computation and agency. The first objective of the workshop was to identify and analyze the constraints and potentials of the chosen material,... More > fabric – elasticity, hardening potential (form resistance), – and those of the agents (robots) – performance, self-awareness (sensors), scale potential, range of motion. In order to merge the information of both parties, creating a feedback loop between the robots and the material was necessary. By attaching various sensors – proximity (ping), location (xbee) – and a webcam to the SERBs, surface features could be detected and responded to, thus allowing the material to be affected on a local level in real time. Using Processing, these specific responses could be coded into the robots, i.e. a decision-making protocol was created (agency). Imparting the robots with agency thus allowed the system to adapt to the material at a local level and work towards desired spatial outcomes.< Less
