This book shows us the characteristics of each model and informs us of important issues, for example its design has been taken more and more into account to trigger a positive human response and, on the other hand, are being used as research models for studying the workings of the human brain. Therefore, some androids are being programmed with the ability to think or embodied intelligence because they are built with sensors to learn from the interaction with their environment. I was also astonished to learn that developers are looking to create computer brains from which eventually emerges human-like consciousness!!
My sincere appreciation to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
