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.
