6 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Acclaimed filmmaker Errol Morris paints a fascinating portrait of four obsessed eccentrics. Morris weaves interviews with a wild animal trainer, a topiary gardener, a robot designer and an expert on the naked mole rat together with old movies, cartoons and stock footage for a compelling, kaleidoscopic look at the very thin line which separates madness from genius"--Container
Cambrian intelligence : the early history of the new AI by Rodney Allen Brooks( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until the mid-1980s, AI researchers assumed that an intelligent system doing high-level reasoning was necessary for the coupling of perception and action. In this traditional model, cognition mediates between perception and plans of action. Realizing that this core AI, as it was known, was illusory, Rodney A. Brooks turned the field of AI on its head by introducing the behavior-based approach to robotics. The cornerstone of behavior-based robotics is the realization that the coupling of perception and action gives rise to all the power of intelligence and that cognition is only in the eye of an observer. Behavior-based robotics has been the basis of successful applications in entertainment, service industries, agriculture, mining, and the home. It has given rise to both autonomous mobile robots and more recent humanoid robots such as Brooks' Cog. This book represents Brooks' initial formulation of and contributions to the development of the behavior-based approach to robotics. It presents all of the key philosophical and technical ideas that put this "bottom-up" approach at the forefront of current research in not only AI but all of cognitive science

Fixed : the science/fiction of human enhancement( Visual )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing buzz around the potential for science and technology to create significant "human enhancement" applications, such as bionic limbs, improved memory or cognition, or the ability to choose specific characteristics for our offspring. The possibilities stir the imagination and excitement of many, while for others the rhetoric and current research into human enhancement signals alarms of a new eugenics. And yet, for most non-scientists, this sounds like the realm of science fiction, a world awash in mystery and misunderstanding. Featuring disability studies scholar Dominika Bednarska; disability justice educator Patty Berne; exoskeleton test pilot Fernanda Castelo; bionics engineer Hugh Herr; NPR radio host John Hockenberry; biochemist and ability studies scholar Gregor Wolbring; robot scientist Rodney Brooks; futurist Jamais Cascio; bioethicist and policy advocate Marcy Darnovsky; brain-computer interface study participant Tim Hemmes; philosophy professor Cressida Heyes; transhumanist James Hughes; reproductive rights advocate Sujatha Jesudason; disability lawyer Silvia Yee. With cameo performances by some of the world's leading integrated dance companies, featuring disabled and non-disabled dancers and artists, including the Anjali Dance Company, Antoine Hunter (of Sins Invalid and Urban Jazz Dance Company), AXIS, Candoco, Dancing Wheels, GIMP, Kounterclockwise, Lisa Bufano, Marc Brew, Remix Dance Company, and Sue Austin/Freewheeling. Through a dynamic mix of verité, dance, archival and interview footage, Fixed challenges notions of normal, the body and what it means fundamentally to be human in the 21st century
Artificial life IV : proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems by Rodney Allen Brooks( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The field of artificial life has recently emerged through the interaction of research in biology, physics, parallel computing, artificial intelligence, and complex adaptive systems. The goal is to understand, through synthetic experiments, the organizational principles underlying the dynamics (usually the nonlinear dynamics) of living systems. This book brings together contributions to the Fourth Artificial Life Workshop, held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the summer of 1994"--Publisher's description

TEDTalks : Rodney Brooks - How Robots Will Invade Our Lives( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MIT professor Rodney Brooks studies and engineers robot intelligence, looking for the holy grail of robotics: the AGI, or artificial general intelligence. Brooks realized that building the biggest brain possible and teaching it everything we could think of would never work. What would work is a robot who learns like we do, by trial-and-error, and one who has many separate parts that learn separate jobs. A founder of the iRobot, makers of the Roomba vacuum, Brooks recently left that company to start Heartland Robotics. In this prophetic TEDTalk, roboticist Brooks talks about how robots are going to work their way into our lives--starting with toys and moving into household chores--and beyond

Robotics research : results of the 12th International Symposium ISRR by Sebastian Thrun( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Symposium of Robotics Research (ISRR) continues to be the premiere meeting of the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR). The 12th International Symposium of Robotics Research took place October 12-15, 2005, in San Francisco, near Fisherman's Wharf, and was organized by the three editors of this book. This volume contains a collection of 50 contributed papers, which were presented at the 12th International Symposium of Robotics Research. These papers are organized in twelve scientific tracks: Physical Human-Robot Interaction and Haptics, Planning, Humanoids, Mechanisms and Design, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, Field Robots, Robotic Vision, Robot Design and Control, Underwater Robotics, Learning and Adaptive Behavior, Networked Robotics, and Interfaces and Interaction. Further articles in this volume summarize one of the invited overview talks of the scientific panel that took place during the ISRR. Historically, the proceedings of the ISRR have featured ground-breaking work of the highest caliber, which influenced generations to come. The present volume promises to be no exception. The collection of scientific articles in this volume provides new insights to important problems in robotics, written by some of the leaders in the field

Symbolic reasoning among 3-d models and 2-d images by Rodney Allen Brooks( Book )

9 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An implemented and operational model-based vision system is described. Examples are given of its interpretation of images, including extraction of three dimensional parameters from monocular images. Advances are presented in representation for geometric modeling of objects and objects classes, in techniques for manipulating non-linear symbolic algebraic constraints, in geometric reasoning in incompletely specified situations, and in constructing algebraic constraints from image measurements. Both generic object classes and specific objects are represented by volume models which are independent of viewpoint. Complex real world object classes are modeled. Variations in size, structure and spatial relations within object classes can be modeled. New spatial reasoning techniques are described which are useful both for prediction within a vision system, and for planning within a manipulation system. New approaches to prediction and interpretation are introduced, based on the propagation of symbolic constraints. Predictions are two-pronged. First, prediction graphs provide a coarse filter for hypothesizing matches of objects to image features. Second, prediction graphs contain instructions on how to use measurements of image features to deduce three dimensional information about tentative object interpretations. I subject to consistent derived implications about the size, structure and spatial configuration of the hypothesized objects. Prediction, description and interpretation proceed concurrently, from coarse object subpart and class interpretations of images, to fine distinctions among object subclasses, and more precise three dimensional quantification of objects.
