Cognitive Robotics by
Call Number: TJ211.35 .C63 2016
Publication Date: 2015-10-16
Cognitive robotics is an approach to creating artificial intelligence in robots by enabling them to learn from and respond to real-world situations, as opposed to pre-programming the robot with specific responses to every conceivable stimulus. Presenting the contributions of international experts from various disciplines within the field, Cognitive Robotics provides novel material and discusses advanced approaches in the field of intelligent robotics. It explains the various aspects of the topic to provide readers with a solid foundation on the subject. It takes a multidisciplinary approach that considers the artificial intelligence, physical, chemical, philosophical, psychological, social, cultural, and ethical aspects of this rapidly emerging field.
Healthcare Robots Ethics Design and Implementation by
Call Number: R857.R63 W96 2015eb
Publication Date: 2015-06-28
This study deals with an underexplored area of the emerging technologies debate: robotics in the healthcare setting. The author explores the role of care and develops a value-sensitive ethical framework for the eventual employment of care robots. Highlighting the range of positive and negative aspects associated with the initiative to design and use care robots, it draws out essential content as a guide to future design both reinforcing this study's contemporary relevance, and giving weight to its prescriptions. The book speaks to, and is meant to be read by, a range of disciplines from science and engineering to philosophers and ethicists.
Machines That Think by
Call Number: Q335 .M33 2017eb
Publication Date: 2017-11-14
You might not realize it, but you interact with AIs every day. They route your phone calls, approve your credit card transactions and help your doctor interpret results. Driverless cars will soon be on the roads with a decision-making computer in charge. But how do machines actually think and learn? In Machines That Think, AI experts and New Scientist explore how artificial intelligence helps us understand human intelligence, machines that compose music and write stories - and ask if AI is really a threat.
Practical Field Robotics by
Call Number: TJ211.415 .S78 2015eb
Publication Date: 2014-12-22
Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach is an introductory book in the area of field robotics. It approaches the subject with a systems design methodology, showing the reader every important decision made in the process of planning, designing, making and testing a field robot. Takes a practical approach to field robotics, presenting the design and implementation of a robot from start to end; provides multiple robot examples including those used in in nuclear service, underground coal mining and mowing; bridges the gap between existing mathematically based texts and the real work that goes on in research labs all over the world.
Robot Ethics 2. 0 by
Call Number: TJ211.49 .R62 2014
Publication Date: 2017-10-03
As robots slip into more domains of human life - from the operating room to the bedroom - they take on our morally important tasks and decisions, as well as create new risks from psychological to physical. To help the robotics industry and broader society, we need to not only press ahead on a wide range of issues, but also identify new ones emerging as quickly as the field is evolving. For instance, where military robots had received much attention in the past (and are still controversial today), we look toward autonomous cars here as an important case study that cuts across diverse issues, from liability to psychology to trust and more. And because robotics feeds into and is fed by AI, Internet of Things, and other cognate fields, robot ethics must also reach into those domains, too. Expanding these discussions also means listening to new voices; robot ethics is no longer the concern of a handful of scholars. Experts from different academic disciplines and geographical areas are now playing vital roles in shaping ethical, legal, and policy discussions worldwide.
Robotics and Human-Computer Interaction by
Call Number: TJ211.26 .R63 2015
Publication Date: 2016-02-04
Instead of jumping right into the instructions, this book will provide you first with all the necessary concepts that you need to learn in order to make the learning process a whole lot easier. This way, you're sure not to get lost in confusion once you get to the more complex lessons provided in the latter chapters. Examples are provided for a more knowledgeable approach to your learning. You will also learn the designs and forms of Robotics.
Robots and Robotics: Principles, Systems, and Industrial Applications by
Call Number: TJ211 .M55 2017eb
Publication Date: 2017-07-06
Master the principles and practices of industrial robotics. This comprehensive resource provides a solid foundation in applied industrial robotics and robot technology. You will get straightforward explanations of the latest components, techniques, and capabilities along with practical examples and detailed illustrations. The book takes a look at the entire field of robotics; from design and production to deployment, operation, and maintenance. Valuable appendices provide information on specific robot models, pendants, and controllers.
