By Kathleen Richardson

This publication explores the making of robots in labs on the Massachusetts Institute of know-how (MIT). It examines the cultural principles that move into the making of robots, and the function of fiction in co-constructing the technological practices of the robot scientists. The e-book engages with debates in anthropological theorizing in regards to the means that robots are reimagined as clever, self reliant and social and weaved into lived social realities. Richardson charts the stream clear of the “worker” robotic of the Nineteen Twenties to the “social” one of many 2000s, as robots are reimagined as partners, associates and healing agents.
