'The first time I created life, I did it the easy way... this time I'm attempting to make a baby the hard way: one piece at a time.' Artificial intelligence is the Holy Grail for many scientists. But will we ever be able to build machines that can bringether the knowledge, skills and ideas that would be needed to make up a complete human being? This was the question that fascinated Steve Grand when he decided to set about building 'Lucy'. Called an unscientific charlatan by some, a naive fool by otherhis 'self-taught tinkerer' deliberately eschewed large public grants and laboratory affiliations to give himself as much freedom as possible to pursue his revolutionary ideas. In this compelling story of perseverance and despair, of frustration and elat we live through the birth pains as Steve Grand defies the scientific establishment to create one of the most advanced robots in existence.
