MACHINES WILL MAKE BETTER CHOICES THAN HUMANS
A collection of essays by Douglas Coupland. Edited and with foreword by EKV-lector Michel van Dartel.
The future is no longer the distant, mythical condition it once was to us. Technology has placed it at our fingertips. It wasn’t so long ago that we marveled at devices that could tell us where we were at that exact moment; it became odd when they recently began to tell us where we would soon be. The most important issue, however, might not be whether a future coproduced and made readily available to us by technology is good or bad, but rather how we want to relate to it as human beings.
The three essays by Douglas Coupland collected in this volume address this question and describe how the technological advances that are currently radically revising our notion of the future are shaping us as much as we are shaping them.
