Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press changed the way people think, enlarged our vocabulary, expanded the boundaries of communication and influenced its depth.The number of people working with information today is growing. Together we double its volume every two years and are unconsciously teaching our computers. Any query entered into a search engine helps improve artificial intelligence, and our machines, bodies and the environment create big data. Its analysis prompts the development of new markets – everything that once was immeasurable is now being quantified, digitised and tracked. For the first time in history, cognition is becoming objective.
