Críticas:

Everyone I know should read this book. It will be a classic.--Robert Lee, former U.S. Air Force Cyber Warfare Operations officer and SANS instructor

Rid s book offers a useful history as well as a chance to re-examine our current technological crossroads.--Zeynep Tufekci (07/24/2016)"

Rise of The Machines isn't just an insightful history of cybernetics but also a fascinating journey with the twentieth-century thinkers from tech giants and eccentric mathematicians to science fiction writers and counterculture gurus who have shaped how we understand machines and ourselves.--P. W. Singer, author of Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know and Ghost Fleet: A Novel of the Next World War"

Rise of the Machines is a fascinating history of cybernetics, and of the visionaries like Norbert Wiener who first imagined the potential and peril of machines that would begin to replicate the capabilities of the human mind.--Martin Ford, author of Rise of the Robots"

Rid s fascinating survey of the oscillating hopes and fears expressed by the cybernetic mythos offers an implicit lesson.--Michael Saler"

Rid's fascinating survey of the oscillating hopes and fears expressed by the cybernetic mythos offers an implicit lesson.--Michael Saler

A common theme connects war machines, computer networks, social media, ubiquitous surveillance, and virtual reality. For fifty years or more the same people and the same ideas weave through these innovations united by the term 'cyber, ' as in cyberspace and cybernetics. Read this amazing history and you'll go: 'Aha!'--Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired magazine, author of What Technology Wants and The Inevitable (07/24/2016)

Reseña del editor:

As lives offline and online merge even more, it’s easy to forget how we got here. Rise of the Machines reclaims the spectacular story of cybernetics, a control theory of man and machine. In a history that unpacks one of the twentieth century’s pivotal ideas, Thomas Rid delivers a thought-provoking portrait of our technology-enraptured era.Springing from the febrile mind of mathematician Norbert Wiener amid the devastation of World War II, the cybernetic vision underpinned a host of seductive myths about the future of machines. This vision would radically transform the postwar world, ushering in sweeping cultural change. From the Cold War’s monumental SAGE bomber defense system to enhanced humans, Wiener’s scheme turned computers from machines of assured destruction into engines of brilliant utopias. Cybernetics triggered blissful cults, the Whole Earth Catalog, and feminist manifestos, just as it fueled martial gizmos and the air force’s foray into virtual space.As Rid shows, cybernetics proved a powerful tool for two competing factions—those who sought to make a better world and those who sought to control the one at hand. In the Bay Area, techno-libertarians embraced networked machines as the portal to a new electronic frontier: a peaceful, open space of freedom. In Washington, DC, cyberspace provided the perfect theater for dominance and war. Meanwhile the future arrived secretly in 1996, with Moonlight Maze, dawn of a new age of digital state-on-state espionage. That “first cyberwar,” as Rid reveals in a blow-by-blow account, went on for years—and indeed has never stopped. In our long-promised cybernetic future, the line between utopia and dystopia continues to be disturbingly thin.Drawing on new sources and interviews with hippies, anarchists, sleuths, and spies, Rise of the Machines offers an unparalleled perspective into our anxious embrace of technology and today’s clash of digital privacy and security.
