Abstract

The dream of robots, automatons that can think, move, and act like humans, has been with us for centuries, dating back to Leonardo daVinci, the ancient Greeks, and possibly even earlier. The word robot was introduced by Czech writer Karel Capek in his play R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots), published in 1920. Capek’s play describes robots that are very close to the androids of films like Star Wars – mechanical, intelligent servants with a purpose to serve their human masters.
