In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, George Gilder was interviewed by Tunku Varadarajan on a host of topics, including Gilder’s latest book, “Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy.”

An open critic of Google, Gilder speaks about his dislike of the “new catastrophe theory” which says that “artificial intelligence will make human minds obsolete, and that we’ll soon produce machine-learning tools and robotics that excel the capabilities of humans brains.” According to Gilder, Google and Silicon Valley believe they have reached the height of human achievement and that this is an “end of history moment”.  Gilder rejects the idea that humans will be replaced by machines. “Machines can’t be minds. Information theory shows that. Information is surprise... A surprise in a machine is a breakdown.” Read Gilder's Interview at the Wall Street Journal >>
