What if machines replace us?
By Pedro Enríquez de Salamanca, “Furby”
The future involves understanding that a prosthesis we have invented, technology, has determined our historical development as a species for some 30,000 years… but for the last century and growing exponentially, this technology is increasingly getting closer to being considered magic and taking on roles that were previously only associated with human beings.
This future scenario confronts us with a crossroads: the machine, which is now intelligent and makes decisions, will eventually replace us… but what if this is a definitive opportunity to become more human instead?!
