Thought I’d say hi to the community - by the way, the lego profile picture really DOES look like me
I’ve just finished a degree in English Literature where my Dissertation was a focus on the evolution of robotic science fiction in the context of Vernor Vinge’s 1993 NASA lecture about the “Singularity” and Mori’s “Uncanny Valley”. I used a Marxist methodology which mapped the works of authors such as Asimov, Dick and Gibson not only to their social and historical contexts but also the limits of technology at the time they were writing.
I’ve become completely hooked, and I’m currently considering extending these studies to a Master’s Degree, and potentially a book ... I’m also intrigued by the possibility of creating my own chatbot at some stage!
So that’s me - hope to get to know some of you over the next few weeks and months ...
