2005 Livre Prix - ROBOTS
French author Daniel Ichbiah has received the French 2005 Prix for Robots,
his recent book on technology and the future.
This is timely for all of us because the book focuses on the evolution of
technology and the coalescences of humanity and technology while
illustrating the many benefits of dynamic technology. The final chapter of
the book titled "Les Robots du Futur" covers technology and the future of
the human body.
This chapter also features my design "Primo Posthuman"
http://www.natasha.cc/primo.htm in a full four-page spread of images and my
ideas about the challenges of the future, society's ability to adapt to the
massive changes ahead, transhumans and posthumans, and the history and
future of transhumanism.
Also covered in this chapter are nanorobots, and the works of Takao Someya
of Japan, Frederic Kaplan of Sony in Paris, Dr. Haipeng Xie of the
University of Guelph, Dr. Hod Lipson of Cornell University, and Prof.
Kevin Warwick of the University of Reading.
Robots is a truly visionary and well written expose of the emergence of
technology and robotics.

then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what is inside the
circle and everything outside the circle, then that is an open system
