Life 3.0 is written like a journey through time. Having learned from the challenges of previous lives, humans are now faced with their biggest challenge: learning to live with machines of superior intelligence. The journey has already begun and nobody really knows what the future will hold. However, what man can and must do, is remember his humanity when faced with the great evolution of technology. If humans act ethically and truly believe that artificial intelligence can be integrated into everyday life in a way that benefits us, then the world will be a better place with it. For its use to have a meaningful impact, it is important to promote research and keep the debate about the positive aspects of artificial intelligence alive.
