Yuval Noah Harari, an Israeli historian and the internationally best-selling author of Sapiens , has a new book out about the future of humanity, called Homo Deus . He recently sat down with The WorldPost at a Berggruen Institute salon in Los Angeles. In the following interview, he discusses the new authority of dataism and godlike powers of science to redesign humanity and create an inorganic, new speciesartificial intelligence. WorldPost : In your previous book, Sapiens, you observed that humans are the only species that can organize themselves around abstract ideas or codesmyth, religion, ideology. In your new book, Homo Deus , you argue that a new ideology has arisendataism ― that is the new organizing principle of humanity. When big data is married to biologyhappening as we speak - you worry that it will reduce the biological organism to a set of information that can be organized by programmed algorithms to seek a desired outcome.

What happens when a piano is combined with technology? “Kids or anybody could learn how to play the piano really properly from the best musicians in the world,” said Mischa Dohler, composer and professor of Wireless Communications at King’s College London. 'Could we digitize skills?' Dohler’s aim is to build a database that records the movements of a piano player’s hands with the help of a special sensing glove that tracks every movement of the musician’s joints. Once the data is collected, a piano student can then wear another glove that can train the student’s hands. “You could imagine this so-called exoskeleton that you can put on your hand. It will pressurize the hands and the joints, and will move it gently at the beginning, and nudge essentially the body into the right shape and in the right way of moving your hand,” Dohler said. It is an example of what Dohler calls the “Internet of Skills” that he is demonstrating at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition in Los Angeles.

She encouraged him to move to Los Angeles, where he did work in commercials and television, looking the part of the all-American. He auditioned for Lucille Ball, who was organizing a team of in-house players. Lucy loved him, signed him to a contract. It was Ball who eventually recommended that he do something useful with all of the obscure facts in his head. "We have enough actors," she told him. His first book, Academy Awards Illustrated , was published in 1965. In retrospect the Osborne book and its subsequent editions seem like templates for Turner Classic Movies. Both the books and the cable channel devote their attentions and enthusiasms to domestic films of a certain period: the Golden Age of Hollywood during which the major genres (gangster, musical, horror, comedy, Western, melodrama) were established and the iconic screen personae (Cagney, Hepburn, Leigh, Astaire, Roberts, Garland, Wayne, Davis, Stewart, Grant) were made famous.

Of course there was. Only in Los Angeles
