By Brian David Johnson

When businesses increase a brand new know-how, do they ask the way it may possibly impact the folk who will really use it? That, roughly, sums up Brian David Johnson’s tasks as Intel’s futurist-in-residence. during this attention-grabbing e-book, Johnson offers a set of technological know-how fiction prototyping tales that try to solution the question.

These tales specialise in an identical topic: scientists and thinkers exploring own robotics as a brand new kind of man made intelligence. This isn’t fanciful hypothesis. Johnson’s tales are in accordance with Intel’s futurecasting examine, which makes use of ethnographic box stories, expertise study, development facts, and technology fiction to improve a realistic imaginative and prescient of customers and computing. twenty first Century robotic offers technological know-how fiction designed to lead to technology fact.

Get actual perception into know-how and the longer term with this e-book. it is going to open your eyes.
