About this book

This book explores communication between humans and robots. Using a range of communication theories, it highlights how each theory provides a different perspective on the communication that occurs. The analysis of human interactions with a variety of forms of robot suggests new ways to perceive what communication, and being a communicator, entails.

About the authors

Eleanor Sandry is Lecturer in the Department of Internet Studies at Curtin University, Australia. Her research examines communication theory and practice, both offline and online, with a focus on considering the value of the differences between communicators.

Reviews

"Will communication between humans and robots improve as technical advances make robots more similar to us? Not necessarily, as Eleanor Sandry convincingly argues in this fascinating, insightful book. Drawing ideas and vivid examples from robotics, communication theory, philosophy, and art, Robots and Communication shows how our deep differences from humanoid as well as nonhumanoid robots enrich the communication experience. A must read for robot designers, communication theorists, and anyone concerned about our increasing interaction with machines." - Robert T. Craig, University of Colorado, USA
