Fall for the Book: The Exponential Age: Big Tech and Us

As high-tech innovation moves at a dizzying rate, our world and society is in danger of spinning off its axis. In The Exponential Age: How Accelerating Technology is Transforming Business, Politics, and Society, entrepreneur Azeem Azhar presents a call-to-arms over the widening gap between AI, automation, and big data, offering a much-needed set of policy solutions to problems like political polarization, ballooning inequality, and unchecked corporate power. The result is a wholly new way to think about technology that will transform our approach to the future. Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify says Azhar has a “broad understanding of the exponential ways technology can be used to solve our biggest problems, shape our society, and bridge cultural divides.”
