George Dyson deals with the history of science and technology, in particular with the development of computer technology, artificial intelligence, digital telecommunications and space travel. AI is the subject of his book "Darwin Among the Machines", published in 1997. He deals with space travel in "Project Orion. The True Story of the Atomic Spaceship" (2002). Dyson also deals with the topic of digitization in his most recent book, "Turing's Cathedral" (2012). Although he never studied himself, Dyson is a sought-after lecturer at conferences and universities, such as the Institute for Advanced Study. He regularly writes for the online scientific forum Edge.org, which also features the essay "Childhood's End". The text was well received in the USA and was taken up by "Vanity Fair" and "Arts and Letters Daily", among others.
