How do you spot a robot mimicking a human? How do you recognise and then deactivate a rebel servant robot? How do you escape a murderous 'smart' house, or evade a swarm of marauding robotic flies?

In this dryly hilarious survival guide, roboticist Daniel H. Wilson teaches worried humans the keys to quashing a robot mutiny. From treating laser wounds to fooling face and gait recognition, besting robot logic to engaging in hand-to-pincher combat, How to Survive a Robot Uprising covers every possible doomsday scenario facing the newest endangered species: humans. And with its thorough overview of current robot prototypes - including giant walkers, insect, dog, and snake robots - How to Survive a Robot Uprising is also a witty yet legitimate introduction to contemporary robotics.

This book is cynically amusing while also remaining strangely (creepily? ominously?) informative. It's clear Daniel Wilson really knows about robots! (And that he has a wicked sense of humor!) 閱讀評論全文
