Generation Robot - A Century of Science Fiction Fact and Speculation
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing
A history of robotics and technology told from Terri Favro's experiences growing up with robots on TV to today's technological reality.
For fans of Mary Roach and Jon Ronson, written from the point of view of the late-boomer generation known as Generation Jones (born 1954 to 1962).
Covers a century of science fiction, fact, and speculation –– from the 1950 publication of Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot, to the release of Tesla’s self driving car, to the 2050 Singularity when artificial and human intelligence is predicted to merge.
Generation Robot addresses hard science, technological innovation, and pop-culture in a fun and accessible voice that will appeal to a wider readership, not just for serious scientific readers .
Terri Favro has published several works of science fiction in Canada, this is her non-fiction debut
