What are some good books on society

Book review
What future does society expect?

At the age of 99, scientist, engineer and inventor James Lovelock wrote a book about the future. His name is linked to the controversial Gaia hypothesis that "life has worked to change its environment since it came into being". He is a member of the Royal Society as well as Martin Rees, who accompanied the development of this book. It is about electronic life emerging from organic life. For Lovelock, the crucial step in this development is the moment when computers were used to design and create themselves, like the AlphaZero computer, which taught itself to play Go and became a superhuman gamer within 24 hours has become. The emerging hyper-intelligent "cyborgs" are said to think independently and free from human rules. They would be our offspring and a product of the same evolutionary process that gave birth to us humans. Lovelock does not assume that the cyborgs pose a threat to humans. In their own interest, they are forced to make common cause with the people, since it is vital for both of them to fight global warming. Lovelock calls the age in which these new forms of existence will exist "Novocene". It will replace the Anthropocene. If the author weren't James Lovelock, one could take his future scenario as the template for a new science fiction.
