Pierre Levy-photo 2

I was born in Tunisia in 1956, I went to school in France, I live in Canada. I’m interested in philosophy, religion, science, technology and their intersections.

I’m currently professor at the University of Ottawa, fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and author of about 15 books translated in several languages, including (in english): Collective Intelligence (1994), Becoming Virtual (1995), Cyberculture (1997) and The Semantic Sphere (2011).

I lead since many years the IEML (Information Economy Meta-language) project. IEML is a long term fundamental research project that will bring fruit (technical tools and social uses) after 2016.

Please find here some of my stuff free online: articles, long forms, interviews, videos of conferences, (my own) pirated books, etc.

You can find here the Wikipedia entry about myself.
