Quick overview 'There has never been a time when the risk of technology ruining our humanity has been bigger. This book is not for the engineers that write the code, the policy makers who claim they can regulate it or the experts that keep creating the buzz around it. They all know what I'm about to tell you. This is a book for you. Because, believe it or not, you are the only one that can fix it' Mo Gawdat
€17.56

No one is better placed than Mo Gawdat to explain how the technology of the future works, how it could be designed to work against us and what we can do to change that. The internationally bestselling author of Solve for Happy and former chief business officer of Google X (the 'moonshot' innovation arm of Google) with more than thirty years' experience working at the cutting-edge of technology, turns his attention to cyber innovation; what it gets right and the many, many things it gets wrong.

Artificial intelligence is already smarter than humans in many ways, but, like so much of life, the output is designed by the input, with automated algorithms reflecting an imperfect world. So, how can we change that? In Scary Smart, Mo Gawdat draws on his considerable expertise to answer this question and to show what we can all do now to teach ourselves and our machines how to live better.
