TALKING TO ROBOTS Tales from Our Human-Robot Futures

by | Read by John Lee

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

John Lee narrates Duncan's playful imaginings of how robots will integrate into human society. Lee's crisp and deep British voice guides listeners through Duncan's chapters, each of which focuses on a particular domain for robots, such as medicine, politics, consumerism, relationships, etc. Relying on interviews conducted in the last few years, Duncan draws out the possibilities, even cross-referencing how one robot type may impact another and how all of them will likely result in the simultaneous destruction and expansion of human life. Duncan shows that the future of robots is rife with contradictions, morally ambiguous challenges, and even monotonous elements, all of which come across a bit more dramatically in Lee's performance.
