The Sun the Genome and the Internet Tools of Scientific Revolutions

The Sun the Genome and the Internet Tools of Scientific Revolutions Free download ´ 0 In this visionary look into the future Freeman Dyson argues that technological changes fundamentally alter our ethical and social arrangements and that three rapidly advancing new technologies solar energy genetic engineering and world wide communication together have the potential to create a eual distribution of the world's wealthDyson begins by rejecting the idea that scientific revolutions are primarily concept driven He shows rather that new tools are often the sparks that ignite scientific discovery Such tool driven revolutions have profound. Freeman Dyson one of the people behind uantum Electrodynamics along with Feynman Tomonga Schwinger in the 1940s It is one of the great blue sky dreamers with visionary ideas for technology for imagined futures of humanity He passed on recently but he is the one who came up with ideas like the Dyson Sphere to harvest all of the energy of a star or the Astrochicken or martian potato to farm the Kuiper belt as we take over the solar system In this short book he has biographical sketches from his youth his ideas on technology to further social justice and technologies for the future Dyson although firmly ensconced is the postwar science establishment he was on the side of the angels and will be missed

A bit of an interesting exercise to see how visions of the future can change in just 20 years So far bioengineering hasn t done uite so much as Dyson had hoped but he was right about the internet in fact he almost underestimated its impact He underestimated AI as it had reached a temporary lull in the late 90s and people were beginning to doubt it again but it s definitely making its comeback Progress on solar energy has been fairly disappointing As a uick little time capsule of the state of some technologies at a point in time not a bad read

This slim book has some of the finest science writing I ve read yet It elegantly and concisely talks about three complex scientific revolutions that will drive technology this century A little dated since it came out 10 years ago but Dyson a friend of Feynman s and himself revered in the science community has a reverence for applicable science that makes it thrilling even to the lay person His subtle and not so subtle lessons on the social impact of technology enrich the story furtherEye opener Technology does not eual social justices for all History may show technologies becoming famous for who it frees but not for whom it enslaves One example home appliances in the early mid 1900s freed the servant class allowing their next generation to go the college while enslaving the educated middle class mom Another example Gutenberg s printing press books schools students allowed to attend schools freeing those who were confined to seeking knowledge in the monastery except women who weren t allowed in schools but now could no longer get a good education through the churchSnoozer The last 10 pages on reprogenetics ie Gattaca Between the movie and further breakthroughs in cloning and stem cell therapy in the last decade his contribution here is overdone and overscaled in terms of centuries where new species will be created based on our newfound ability for conscious selection A little too much extrapolation for my taste
