George Dyson

George Dyson is a historian of technology whose subjects have included the development (and redevelopment) of the Aleut kayak (“Baidarka”, 1986), the evolution of artificial intelligence (“Darwin Among the Machines”, 1997), and a path not taken into space (“Project Orion”, 2002). His recent “Turing’s Cathedral” (2012) illuminates the transition from numbers that mean things to numbers that do things that allowed code to take over the world.English biography coming soon.
