Overview

Un potente e inquietante análisis de nuestra dependencia de las nuevas tecnologías, por el autor de Superficiales. ¿Qué está haciendo net con nuestras mentes?

¿Somos capaces de decidir qué tareas dejamos en manos del ordenador y cuáles nos reservamos? ¿Dedicamos nuestra atención a lo que queremos? Las nuevas tecnologías suponen un ahorro de trabajo, pero ¿podrían erosionar nuestra libertad?

Cada día, diversas aplicaciones nos ayudan a hacer ejercicio o incluso buscar pareja. Confiamos en una voz man made que nos guía paso a paso hasta nuestro destino. Las redes sociales nos incitan a recuperar amistades. l. a. automatización es imparable y ya se está apropiando incluso de las profesiones más cualificadas: los software program substituyen el ojo clínico del médico, el oído del músico, los angeles mano del arquitecto o los angeles pericia del piloto. Coches que conducen solos, ataques con drones militares... l. a. realidad supera con creces lo que hasta hace poco nos parecía ciencia ficción.

Tejido a base de curiosidades históricas y lúcidas descripciones de las últimas tendencias tecnológicas, económicas, psicológicas y neurocientíficas, Atrapados nos brinda una visión realista y alarmante de un poderoso fenómeno que está determinando nuestras vidas.

Carr lleva años cuestionando las ventajas reales de las tecnologías de los angeles información y favoreciendo el debate sobre un tema controvertido que nos afecta a todos.
