Our open society needs heroes. Let us salute Arnaud Beltrame’s sacrifice for the fatherland. Our human society needs visionaries: “The development of a complete artificial intelligence could put an end to the human race,” said Stephen Hawking, who left us not long ago. I read his Brief History of Time at the age of 14. A book that shaped my mind and my perception of reality.
The MIT severed its ties with startup Nectome, but humanity won’t abandon its dream of immortality.
Let’s live the present moment to its fullest.
Take care,
Albert Meige, CEO & Enchanteur @ Presans
