Description - Analogia: The Entangled Destinies of Nature, Human Beings and Machines by George Dyson
In a world where humans coexist with technologies they no longer control or understand, who holds the future?
George Dyson plots a thrilling and unexpected course through 300 years of history and science to reveal the hidden connections that underpin the digital transformation of the current age, ending with a premonition of what might follow.
From an eighteenth-century Russian expedition to the furthest reaches of North America, to the mirror signals that heralded the age of digital long-range communications and the invention of the vacuum tube, Analogia interweaves historical adventure with scientific insight in a deeply personal story that frames the pursuit - and cost - of the digital revolution in a captivating new light.
