Frankenstein's Legacy

The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries and the ETC Press are proud to announce the release of the original single, "Frankenstein’s Legacy: Four Conversations about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the Modern World."

This project 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. "Frankenstein’s Legacy" 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 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.

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.
