Om boka

In the 21st century, we live in a digitalized world that is experiencing environmental changes,

scarcity of natural resources, global pandemics, mass human migrations, and

burgeoning global populations. Ecology, Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality proposes that to meet these challenges we need to examine the connected global world we live in and consider the advances that have been made in digitalization, miniaturization, dematerialization, artificial intelligence, virtual/augmented realities, and machine learning that have increased our socioeconomic and political productivity. The book outlines potential structural avenues to follow to address these challenges, and focuses on making pragmatic choices to ease living through these chaotic crisis conditions with solutions that will enable us to traverse the systemic crises.
