Milan 2047

Davide Gualco & Carlotta Oliosi

"Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly thereafter, the human era will be ended." Vernor Vinge.
Human biological evolution has become too slow compared to the exponential evolution of the technology created by them. What will happen when artificial intelligence surpasses human intelligence? Ben Goertzel (Artificial General Intelligence Research Institute) is sure that this "technological singularity" will lead to a society within society.
What will happen to the old world? It will be redesigned by AIs.
In Milan, Piazza della Scala becomes the stage where you can immerse yourself in the metaverse, through energy grids and holographic mirrors. In Galleria Vittorio Emanuele a portal inexorably leads you inside a new tower of Babel, through a slide. The man will be forced to live the tower and pray to the new father, the new son and the new holy spirit who, hungry, feed on the carcass of the cathedral, once the fulcrum of the now obsolete christian religion.
