Transcendence in the age of algorithms

On the threshold of a new identity?


In the labyrinth of technological evolution are hidden ancient puzzles and deep meditations on the human essence. Algorithms and prayers (LUISS University Press) interprets the fate of androids from a spiritual perspective, appealing to the endless search for meaning and the thirst for transcendence of humanity. If Philip K. Dick wondered if androids can dream, Bovalino goes further: can they pray? And if not them, are we not, with the development of increasingly complex algorithms, to seek, once again, the divine?

In dialogue with Emanuele Merlino, Head of the Technical Secretariat of the Ministry of Culture.
