Frankenstein’s Legacy: Four Conversations about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the Modern World is a collaboration between Carnegie Mellon University’s ETC Press, dSHARP, and the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries in collaboration with the Alumni Association’s CMUThink program.
This book is part of a university-wide series celebrating the two-hundredth anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This book project specifically sprung from the panel Frankenstein 200: Perils and Potential panel hosted by Digital Scholarship Strategist Rikk Mulligan.
Each of the four panel participants — Jeffrey Bigham, David Danks, Barry Luokkala, and Molly Wright Steenson — sat down with ETC Editor Brad King for wide-ranging discussions about artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the impact of these technologies on the world in which we live. Those conversations were edited into the manuscript that you’re now reading.
The book — part of the ETC Press “In Conversation With” series — is a conversational examination and explanation of some of some of the most powerful technological tools in our society.
