Hans Moravec has been building robots since 1963: his first at age ten. His 1988 book, Mindchildren began a public access to the ideas of his speculative science. His current volume, Robot continues these conjectures of a future robot-run world with fervor. Moravec holds that a robot-reign is inevitable and that it won’t be so bad.
Hans Moravec is currently a Principal Research Scientist in the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University.
