♦ Description : “What will become of our democracies when Google and Facebook will know our tastes and political preferences better than ourselves? What will happen to the welfare state when we, humans, will be squeezed out of the job market by more powerful computers? What use will some religions make of genetic manipulation?
Homo Deus reveals what the world will be like today when, to our collective myths such as the gods, money, equality and freedom, will be combined new demiurgic technologies. And that algorithms, more and more intelligent, will be able to do without our decision-making power. Because, while Homo Sapiens becomes a Homo Deus, we are forging a new destiny.
International bestseller – more than 200,000 copies sold in France, translated into nearly 40 languages - Sapiens questioned the history of humanity, from the Stone Age to the Silicon Valley era. Yuval Noah Harari’s new book offers a breathtaking glimpse into the dreams and nightmares that will shape the 21st century.”
