Living with Robots

Living with Robots

Paul Dumouchel and Luisa Damiano

Living with Robots is a convincing reflection on the increasing presence of robots in society. Designed to operate in an environment shaped and occupied by humans, robots are the new actors in a technical, social, and cultural transformation. The book offers a distinctive and fruitful approach to social robotics through different theoretical frameworks, analyzing the implications of interactions between humans and robots, between humans via robots, and between robots themselves.”
