Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)
Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)

The possibility of using fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic for representing and dealing with concepts was recognized initially but then...

Light Years and Time Travel: An Exploration of Mankind's Enduring Fascination With Light
Light Years and Time Travel: An Exploration of Mankind's Enduring Fascination With Light
According to Einstein, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. Of all the mind-bending theories in modern physics, that, at least, seemed a rule the universe–let alone mankind–could never break.

But in 1994 Professor Gunter Nimtz sent a recording of Mozart’s 40th Symphony through a physical barrier at four times...

In taking on the relation of aesthetics to race, Lloyd challenges the absence of sustained thought about race in postcolonial studies, as well as the lack...

The Disciplinary Frame: Photographic Truths and the Capture of Meaning
The Disciplinary Frame: Photographic Truths and the Capture of Meaning
Photography can seem to capture reality and the eye like no other medium, commanding belief and wielding the power of proof. In some cases, a photograph itself is attributed the force of the real. How can a piece of chemically discolored paper have such potency? How does the meaning of a photograph become fixed? In The Disciplinary Frame,...

Environmental Foresight and Models: A Manifesto
Environmental Foresight and Models: A Manifesto

Policy-makers and the public, it has famously been said, are more interested in the possibility of non-linear dislocations and surprises in the behaviour of the environment than in smooth extrapolations of current trends. The International Task Force in Forecasting Environmental Change (1993-1998) dedicated its work to developing procedures...
