FSFRL Takeover - Cyborgs-Robots-AI Week


The Fantasy and Sci-Fi Readers Lounge (FSFRL) is a gathering place for all those who love the thrill of magic and futuristic adventures! The Fantasy and Sci-Fi Readers Lounge authors created the Facebook group as a way to interact with our readers and introduce them to other authors they may not know but would love to read.

The group is meant to be fun and lighthearted. Every week FSF Readers Lounge will have many features, including days when authors “Take Over” the page and you will get a view into their personality.

What Is A Takeover?

There are many groups across Facebook that allow “Author Takeover” events, where readers get to meet the authors.

So what’s involved?

  • Authors are allocated time slots on the day(s) that the event is happening
  • During that time slot, the author has permission to post whatever they like, within the guidelines of the event and group.
  • The author is encouraged to interact with group members, often with discussions, quizzes, contests, giveaways, and more.
In this case, FSFRL is a readers group that loves to host themed weeks with the themes being voted on by members of the group. During each themed week, authors are invited to participate in 

April 24th - 27th 2019 is
"Cyborgs, Robots & AI Week"


A cyborg, short for "cybernetic organism", is a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts. The term was coined in 1960 by Manfred Clynes and Nathan S. Kline. The term cyborg is not the same thing as bionic, biorobot or android; it applies to an organism that has restored function or enhanced abilities due to the integration of some artificial component or technology that relies on some sort of feedback. While cyborgs are commonly thought of as mammals, including humans, they might also conceivably be any kind of organism.


A robot is a mechanical or virtual artificial agent, usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry.


In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. Computer science defines AI research as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is used to describe machines that mimic "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".


We’re becoming an increasingly more automated world, and already computer programs are able to beat chess grand masters, and appears in medical diagnostics, scientific discoveries, and even toys.

There’s so many ways for the machine world to interact with the creatures and world that no-one really knows where the future will take us. Or do they? 

For four whole days, authors will be posting about their favorite robots, cyborgs and machine-intelligences, each attempting to predict where our technology might take us.
