Catching up

Such is the way of these things, that they sometimes sit dormant exactly at the time I should be updating furiously. I’ll be catching up with the few posts in the next couple of weeks, promising, as always, to update more regularly from now on.

Living Machines Handbook

So proud to have worked on this tome, Living machines: A handbook of research in biomimetics and biohybrid systems, with so many great minds and brilliant scholars. I edited one section, on ‘Perspectives’ (looking mostly at social and cultural impacts of living machines), and contributed an introduction to that section and a chapter, ‘Living machines in the cultural imagination.’ Do check it out; there’s something for everyone in the book with an interest in robotics, psychology, biomimetics, biohybrid systems, and (of course) the social, ethical. and cultural impacts of new technologies.
