When Things Start to Think

When Things Start to Think
by Neil Gershenfeld

Publisher: Henry Holt & Company 1999
ISBN/ASIN: 0805058745

The book explores such science fictional ideas as wearable computers, nanotech circuitry implants, as well as such concerns as emotions, money, and civil rights in the new age of artificial intelligence. Gershenfeld provides a historical overview of the development of computers and extrapolates a world in which we will be forced to deal with things that think all the time. This can't help but reshape our society in ways we must try to imagine.
