On the occasion of 100 years since the word “Robot” was first coined by the Czech playwright Karel Čapek in his science-fiction drama R.U.R., our colleague Jitka Čejková has edited a book titled “ROBOT 100: One hundred reasons“. In this book, Jitka has assembled a unique collection of contributions from 100 personalities across all walks of life on the past, present and future of robots, robotics and artificial intelligence. The contributions cover a diverse field of viewpoints not only from natural sciences and engineering but also art, sports, philosophy, sociology or history. Jitka introduces her book in an interview at Universitas.cz and a spot on the main Czech TV news channel ČT24 (time 20:50). The book is available from the Kosmas on-line store.
