Our daily lives are increasingly being directed by technology. The evolution of technology can no longer be stopped and increases exponentially. The speed of evolution is so high that no one can properly predict what the outcome will be.
Artificial intelligence, robotics, gene editing, internet of things ... the digital waves are unstoppable ...
Will humanity drown or surf into a better world while standing on the wave?
Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow is a book written by Israeli author Yuval Noah Harari, professor at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
The book sets out to examine possibilities of the future of Homo sapiens. The premise outlines that during the 21st Century, humanity is likely to make a significant attempt to gain happiness, immortality and God-like powers. Throughout the book, Harari openly speculates various ways that this ambition might be realised in the future based on the past and present.
This book is a must read on the future possibilities of the human race.
A great book about the coming technology age by the Futurist Gerd Leonhard.
"Technology vs. Humanity is a last-minute wake up call to take part in the most important conversation humanity may ever have. Will we blindly outsource and abdicate big chunks of our lives to the global technology companies – or will we take back our autonomy and demand a sustainable balance between technology and humanity?"
I would recommend anyone to check out this great book and think about the coming ethical debate regarding the future of technology & humanity.
