Artificial Intelligence is a field that has always inhabited the borderlands of science and SF, and has sometimes seemed to be following a research programme laid down by Capek, Asimov and others. One of the founders of the field, who also coined the term "artificial intelligence" has recently passed away: http://news.stanford.edu/news/2011/october/john-mccarthy-obit-102511.html.
