With their methodical attention to detail, their tirelessness, their immunity to boredom, and their very high speed, all coupled now with reasoning power and information, machines are beginning to produce knowledge, often faster and better — “smarter” — than the human who taught them. By promising (or threatening) to replace man, the computer is giving us a new definition of man, as an “information processor,” and of nature, as “information to be processed.” It is not that we cannot live without computers, but that we will be different people because we live with them.
