"John Johnston is to be applauded for his engaging and eminently readable assessment of the new, interdisciplinary sciences aimed at designing and building complex, life-like, intelligent machines. Cybernetics, information theory, chaos theory, artificial life, autopoiesis, connectionism, embodied autonomous agents -- it's all here!" -- Mark Bedau, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Reed College, and Editor-in-Chief, Artificial Life
"As a young researcher in the area of artificial intelligence (AI), I have enjoyedreading this book to better understand the roadmap of 'machinic life' and AI." -- I-Hsien Ting, Emerald Insight
