Abstract:

This book is for both robot builders and scientists who study human behaviour
and human societies. Scientists do not only collect empirical data but they
also formulate theories to explain the data. Theories of human behaviour and
human societies are traditionally expressed in words but, today, with the
advent of the computer they can also be expressed by constructing
computer-based artefacts. If the artefacts do what human beings do, the
theory/blueprint that has been used to construct the artefacts explains human
behaviour and human societies. Since human beings are primarily bodies, the
artefacts must be robots, and human robots must progressively reproduce all we
know about human beings and their societies. And, although they are purely
scientific tools, they can have one very important practical application:
helping human beings to better understand the many difficult problems they
face today and will face in the future - and, perhaps, to find solutions for
these problems.
