Description

Representation of Artificial Intelligence in the Arts, Vol. 1: Androids, Golems, and Prometheus addresses the way in which artificial intelligence, mechanical anthropoids, Golems, and similar types of robots are represented in contemporary culture. These can be seen both in literature and in the cinema. This book does not seek to define or contain what artificial intelligence is. Rather, it argues our own limitations limit the possibilities and potentials of artificial intelligence. Representation of Artificial Intelligence in the Arts, Vol. 1 makes it clear these imaginaries have more to do with what we are as a society and individuals than with the parameters that these creations actually have.
