21st Century

Reading List

Connections need not be synchronous. Authors from other spaces and times offer me their insights. I am beginning to write notes, gather ideas, and perhaps feed these as inputs into my artwork.

Currently I am reading the cynical thoughtful works of Yuval Noah Harari. I would like to better understand the risks that lay ahead with globalization and artificial intelligence. The choices we make pave our future. I hope my rose colored glasses do not break in the process!

  • Yuval Noah Harari and Thomas Friedman debate the future of the human race. Yuval plays pessimist and Thomas plays optimist. Thomas refers to IA (intelligent assistance) over AI (artifical intelligence), and cites examples of companies at the forefront of AI, including AT&T's Nano degrees. (1.5 hour event, UTube)
