Produktbeschreibung


Fans of Homo Deus, The Second Machine Age, and Life 3.0 will love Films from the Future.

Science, technology, and society: In Films from the Future, physicist Andrew Maynard threads together his expertise on emerging technologies with his love of science fiction movies, to explore how science and technology are transforming our future. Through the imagination and creativity of science fiction movies, Maynard introduces readers to the profound capabilities presented by new and emerging technologies, and the complex ethical and societal challenges and opportunities they present.

The future of artificial intelligence and other technologies: Each movie in the book provides the starting point for exploring emerging technologies and trends, from genetic engineering (Jurassic Park) and brain-enhancing drugs (Limitless), to human augmentation (Ghost in the Shell), and artificial intelligence (Ex Machina). These are woven together with emerging ideas on technological convergence and responsible and ethical innovation, to provide a sweeping perspective on where our technologies are taking us, and how we ensure this is where we want to go.

The enlightening science and philosophies of movies: With each examination of twelve movies, you will take a progressive journey through the fascinating worlds of biological and genetic manipulation, human enhancement and cyber technologies, and nanotechnology. Maynard shows that the fantastical worlds of the movies might not be as impossible as we think. With a focus on hard science, ethics, and the social implications of technological breakthroughs, Films from the Future will be sure to change how you think about emerging technologies and how they will impact our lives!

Discover the surprising truth behind science fiction movies, and how they inform our future
