Publisher Description

“We have created a Star Wars civilization, with Stone Age emotions, medieval institutions, and godlike technology.” - Biologist Edward O. Wilson

This 70-page book, highlighted by the author’s artwork, examines the social and philosophical implications of massively intelligent computing systems, beginning with a focus on the prescient writings of Jorge Luis Borges, Philip K. Dick, Robert Anton Wilson and other visionary authors. Olson then examines present-day developments, with the recent acceleration of AI systems through COVID-mediated social measures, and ends with speculations by informed minds on the future of civilization. Is Homo sapiens constructing a technological mousetrap or an evolutionary springboard?
