Summary "Most robots are glorified power tools, limited in scope and subject to constant human control... But not for long. As roboticists Laura Major and Julie Shah argue, tomorrow's robots will not be our tools but our collaborators. They'll operate on their own in busy, unpredictable pubic spaces, driving our trucks, doing our grocery shopping, patrolling our neighborhoods, and even managing our ER's... They'll be our first truly social machines.. [This book] offers a clear and urgent vision for how we can make robots that can survive in the real world, and how they will change our entire relationship to technology."--Dust jacket flap.
