The author offers a sketch of the future of humanity, quite real and not necessarily rosy.
Let's say people have always wanted to overcome old age and poverty and compare with the gods. But in order to do this, they must gain control over their own biological basis. If someday death and pain disappear from our lives, and the reason to hope for this is not so unrealistic, we will be able to double the life expectancy or live as long as we want ... Various devices with artificial intelligence are already coming to our aid. But are we sure computers don't have any sensations or desires?And if they do not have them now, then maybe, when it becomes much more difficult, they will be able to develop their own consciousness? If this happens, how will we know about it? And the main question - what will social relations be like? Will not an ordinary person become a slave to artificially created and eternally living beings with an incomprehensible consciousness? Yuval Harari in this book does not give answers, but invites the reader to look for them himself. Feel the breath of a new era now!
