March of the Machines: Why the New Race of Robots Will Rule the World

Front Cover
Century, 1997 - Artificial intelligence - 263 pages
Kevin Warwick has created robots with the brain power of a wasp. Soon, he will have built robots with the brain power of a cat, and in 10 years, they could be as intelligent as humans. This book shows how the Terminator could become reality, as robots will become far more intelligent and superior in their practical skills than humans. It raises the question of whether humans will be at the mercy of these life forms, and so treated in the same way as humans treat animals today. The author proposes that there is an urgent need for an anti-proliferation treaty to prevent these and other even more horrifying scenarios.
