Terminator: Book Report Day

Skynet may eventually bring about the destruction of humanity and loose an army of Arnold Schwarzenegger- and Summer Glau-lookalike robots over the face of the Earth…but will those robotic killing machines be able to relax with a good book? New Scientist‘s CultureLab has a fun interview with Jon Adams, a researcher at the London School of Economics who’s investigating whether computers can read and interpret literature. It may be reassuring to know that as of yet, robots have neither emotions nor a good grasp on symbolism, and thus will not be passing English 101.

If you’re still suffering from future fear, bioengineers and authors Kyle Kurpinski and Terry D. Johnson will be offering advice from their new book, How to Defeat Your Own Clone: And Other Tips For Surviving the Biotech Revolution at 3 p.m. this Sunday at our Oakland store.
