By Sigmund Kvaløy Setreng

Based on a paper from 1987, Setreng tells the story of the formation of his Ecophilosophy Group in the late 1960s. One of the key concepts that he develops here is that of the Servoglobe: the metaphor of a supercomputer that is able to couple artificial intelligence with global information gathering. The author dwells at length on the difference between qualitative complexity (in nature) and complicatedness (the abstract and the digital).
