I, Robot

Author: Isaac Asimov Narrator: William Hope Release Date: September 2019

Isaac Asimov's ROBOT series - from the iconic collection I, ROBOT to four classic novels - contains some of the most influential works in the history of science fiction. Establishing and testing the THREE LAWS OF ROBOTICS, they continue to shape the understanding and design of artificial intelligence to this day. What happens when a robot begins to question its creators? What would be the consequences of creating a robot with a sense of humour? Or the ability to lie? How do we truly tell the difference between man and machine? In I, Robot, Asimov sets out the Three Laws of Robotics - designed to protect humans from their robotic creations - and pushes them to their limits and beyond. Following genius robopsychologist Dr. Susan Calvin and engineers Powell and Donovan, these short stories helped to transform artificial intelligence from a dream into a science and changed perceptions of robots for ever.

El hombre bicentenario Audiobook

El hombre bicentenario

Author: Isaac Asimov Narrator: Raúl Llorens Release Date: April 2017

Un clásico entre los clásicos de la ciencia ficción. «Esta historia, que apareció por primera vez en 1976, fue mi exposición más clarividente del desarrollo de los robots. Trataba del deseo de un robot de convertirse en hombre y la forma en que realizaba este deseo, paso a paso. No tenía intención de escribir esta historia cuando la empecé, se escribió sola, y se trazó y entrelazó en la máquina de escribir. Acabó siendo la tercera de mis historias favoritas, entre todas las escritas.» Isaac Asimov El hombre bicentenario, merecedora de los prestigiosos premios Hugo y Nebula, fue escrita originalmente por encargo para una antología de relatos conmemorativa del bicentenario de la independencia de Estados Unidos que nunca se publicó. Poco más que añadir a las palabras que Asimov dedica a este relato en la introducción que escribió en 1990 para la antología Visiones de Robot: disfruten del audiolibro.

La última pregunta Audiobook

La última pregunta

Author: Isaac Asimov Narrator: Raúl Llorens Release Date: April 2017

La última pregunta, una obra maestra de la ciencia ficción, es, tal y como afirmó su autor en repetidas ocasiones, «por encima de toda duda, mi favorita entre todas las historias que he escrito en mi carrera». ¿Es posible revertir el inevitable final del Universo, o el mundo debe acabar de todas formas? es la pregunta que desde un día del siglo XXI, hasta generaciones y generaciones posteriores en el tiempo, hacen los humanos a los ordenadores. En un relato aparentemente sencillo sobre un asunto sobrecogedor, el fin de los días, Asimov demuestra, una vez más, una mente preclara y una mano maestra para sobrecoger al lector y dejarlo en vilo, incluso después de la lectura.

Robot Dreams Audiobook

Robot Dreams

Author: Isaac Asimov Narrator: George Guidall Release Date: August 2014

In a career spanning nearly fifty years, Isaac Asimov—science writer, historian, and futurist—accurately predicted how technological breakthroughs would be developed and utilized, years before they became reality. His foresight envisioned calculators, computerized cars, and advances in the field of robotics as he chronicled in such popular books as I, Robot; Robots and Empire; and The Robots of Dawn. Robot Dreams spans the body of his fiction from the 1940s to the mid ’80s, featuring all of the classic Asimovian themes—from the scientific puzzle and the extraterrestrial thriller to the psychological discourse. In addition to the title story (a Locus poll winner and Hugo and Nebula Award finalist), this collection features several of Asimov’s robot tales. A robopsychologist must outwit a machine determined to stay hidden in “Little Lost Robot”; a woman’s talent for “Light Verse” overshadows her true accomplishments with her robot servants; “The Last Question” presented to computer after computer over a hundred billion years may remain forever unanswered … and seventeen more future visions from the grand master of science fiction.
