A catalog of robotics-related books (+ call for holiday season suggestions)

Robot On A Book Shelf

The Women in Robotics network is putting together an open catalog of books related to robotics and technology. Whether you would like to share your own collection with the community, or you just want to find your next read or the perfect holiday season gift (let’s be honest, we all love robots, and we want everyone to love robots), this is a great place to start.

Current titles on the catalog include Frankenstein (Mary Shelley), Uncanny Valley: A Memoir (Anna Wiener) or Sex, Race, and Robots – How to Be Human in the Age of AI (Ayanna Howard). You can access the catalog through this link. And if you would like to contribute with a book suggestion, you can use this form to send it.

Audrow Nash was there to capture her pitch.

And here’s the official video about the work.
