"Humankind 2.0" or "Thinking the Unthinkable"
The future of technology and society
(Chinese edition: CITIC, 2016)
Jinxia Niu, a China-based journalist,
for her magazine
and then compiled the texts into a book, edited
by James Yan (former president of Huawei USA)
to produce the book "Humankind 2.0".
These pages contain notes in English about their conversations. These are notes, not fully-formed chapters of the book. They contain the core ideas that came out of the conversations so that the English-speaking reader can grasp the essentials. The actual texts are published by Jinxia Niu in Chinese language in her magazine, paraphrasing what Piero Scaruffi actually said to her, in order to make the concepts as clear as possible to the Chinese reader.
September 2017: Human 2.0 voted #1 book of the year for young people to read:
There is no plan to produce an English-language version of the articles
or of the final book.
The idea for this series of "dialogues" came after the success of the
Chinese edition of Piero's big book
A History of Silicon Valley
(co-authored with Arun Rao and translated into Chinese by James Yan)
and after the publication in the USA of Piero's small book
Intelligence is not Artificial.
