Abstract

Computers are going to continue to evolve at very high speed. The omnipresent computer that acts very much as extension of the human brain is less than ten years away. This will clearly influence society, and particularly education. How much and what will we have to learn when we can, almost telepathically, get the answer to any question that comes to our mind by just passing it on to our personal PC? How much will the world change if the current millions of web cams are supplemented by mobile (flying) version, much as they are already in use as military drones? And what if we then depend on computers and computer networks for most of our activities and the whole system fails, maybe due to a cyber attack? This and similar questions are addressed in a series of novels whose main ideas will be presented.
