Cristina Pozzi’s book on the ONG2.0 blog

5 September 2018 | Written by La redazione

“A journey that starts in 2017 and projects the reader into all the possible technological developments of the near future, but it’s not just a sci-fi book. The world described by the Guide is based on rigorous scientific studies and forecasts by experts and, in large part, on technologies already existing in the embryo or experimental phase.”

Silvia Pochettino on the blog ONG2.0 writes about Cristina Pozzi’s book “2050. Guida (fu)turistica per viaggiatori nel tempo”, commenting on some quotes from the novel: starting from the analysis about how the world population will evolve in the coming decades, the innovations in the field of agriculture and food production, how the health system will improve thanks to digitization, but also how interpersonal relationships are destined to change.

“And the guide is also full of ethical questions. If on the one hand it highlights the technological potentials – many already existing – on the other, it subordinates the possible developments to ethical and civic choices. What form of government will we want? How much personal data will we be willing to sell? How much power do we want to give to robots and cyborgs?”
