Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

While Nexi gets the cover attention, the real star of this title in the A Great Idea series is Cynthia Breazeal, the head of the Personal Robotics Group at MIT. After a quick tour of the history of robotics and a peek at common robots today, from car assemblers to carpet vacuumers, the focus shifts mainly to the series of robots built by Breazeal’s team, who are determined to create a truly social robot. The challenge of creating a robot with personality is understandably complex, but Allman does a fine job of making it accessible by offering up examples, and numerous photographs, of different robots (of which Nexi is the most successful to date) and explaining why they can’t be considered social in the true sense of the word, whether because they rely on imitation in lieu of intuition or are programmed to interact in a certain way, depending on specific stimuli. It’s all fascinating stuff, for sure, and presented in a simple yet informative manner. A list of books and Web sites points readers in the direction of more info, and there’s little doubt they’ll follow. Grades 4-6. --Ian Chipman
