I designed and illustrated multiple versions of this book cover for author Bob Kohn.

How To Build A Friendly Robot: A Philosophical Novel

An award-winning scholar and technology lawyer presents a realistic courtroom drama about how philosophy, not technology, will keep humanity safe from the rise of intelligent machines. Mortimer J. Adler awarded Mr. Kohn the top prize for his solution to a philosophical problem that lies at the heart of this unique philosophical novel.

Bob Kohn has presented a fascinating story and argument for us to consider. The legal framework of the story produces unexpected results that have profound consequences. He raises some interesting questions: Are robots responsible for their actions? Do they have intentions? Just how much freedom can they be given and be safe to live and interact with?
