A perfect, still, sunny day, had a good run, very encouraging email from MP in SA and JP in Wales. Coffee in the garden. In the evening went to UTube and found Harari speaking about the pandemic and saying that the app to test and trace is dangerous because it is a step towards AI gaining access not just to our locations, but to our bodies and feelings in real time and that it needs to be under medical and ultimately democratic control, but that in Israel it is being implemented by the secret police.
He also then spoke about Homo Deus to a London audiance packing out the Methodist Central Hall. Elizabeth joined me and was very impressed. His exposition of his ideas and his answering of questions was quite outstanding. He has to be described as brilliant.
