The Light of Knowledge – The Lazarus Project Part 2

Biologically, humans are very much like a machine. Our bodies are made up of different components which all work together to support the overall system.

Are Human Like Robots a Necessity?

If science fiction has promised us anything it’s that robots will one day walk, talk and look just like humans.  Authors such as Asimov and movies such as Bladerunner have painted a picture of the future in which synthetic humanoid life is, in many ways, indistinguishable from organic human life.  While many recent advances have...
