Growing Up with Lucy: How to Build an Android in Twenty Easy Steps Paperback – August 1, 2004
From the Publisher
For many scientists, artificial intelligence is the Holy Grail; but will we ever be able to combine the knowledge, skills, and ideas needed to create a complete living being? This was the question that inspired Steve Grand when he set out to build “Lucy.” Regarded as an unscientific charlatan by some, a naïve fool by others, this “self–taught” tinkerer deliberately eschewed grants and laboratory affiliation to allow himself as much freedom as possible to pursue his revolutionary ideas. This is his account of battling the odds to create one of the most advanced robots in existence. Steve Grand is the inventor of the groundbreaking computer game, “Creatures.” He was nominated by THE SUNDAY TIMES as one of “The Brains Behind the 21st Century.”
