The Internet of Us : Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data, Paperback / softback Book

The Internet of Us : Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data Paperback / softback

Description

This "fascinating new book" (The New Yorker) shows how our digital way of life makes us overvalue some ways of processing information over others and thus risks distorting what it means to be human.

Lynch argues that it will be the way in which we adapt our minds to these new tools that will ultimately decide whether or not the "Internet of Things" will be a net gain for humanity.
