Pierre Lévy

Canada Research Chair in Collective Intelligence, University of Ottawa, Canada
Pierre Lévy is a philosopher who has devoted his professional life to the understanding of the cultural and cognitive impacts of digital technologies and to the promotion of their best social uses. He is a world-leading thinker on "cyberculture". His work has been focused around the concept of collective intelligence and knowledge-based societies, and more recently, on the development of an Information Economy Meta Language (IEML) based on semiotic concepts. Pierre Lévy has published several books among them Qu'est-ce que le virtuel ? (Becoming Virtual) or Cyberculture.

"When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong."
