Analogia: The Emergence of Technology Beyond Programmable Control (Farrar, Straus and Giroux)
Friday, 28 August 2020

George Dyson, the author of books such as Darwin Among the Machines and Turing’s Cathedral that look at the expansion of the digital age, has written a new book looking at anti-technologists and what they can tell us about the future. In Analogia, Dyson looks at historical figures from Native American leader Geronimo to physicist Leo Szilard who have either fought against technology or put forward alternative views, and considers a world driven by a generation of machines whose powers are beyond programmable control.
