Dreaming with Smart Machines

September 2016

With artificial intelligence becoming more ubiquitous every year, how will humans adapt to a new era of “smart machines” -- intelligent devices that use machine-to-machine technology? Robots, self-driven cars, and other cognitive computers can make more and more decisions, and solve our problems without human intervention – leading us to ponder, more than ever, our place in a rapidly developing tech world -- and especially our role as parents, teachers, and citizens.

Dreaming with Smart Machines calls us to examine the nature of machines, technological innovation, and life itself. Featured writers include Allison Druin and James Hendler, Angelo Cangelosi and Matthew Schlesinger, Sara Varon, Alan Winfield, Joshua Davis, Neal Bascomb, Robin Hanson, Daniel H. Wilson, Murray Shanahan, Ray Kurzweil, John Markoff, and Matthew Weinstein, who open our eyes and help us imagine the possibilities.
