Ships on 2/07/2024

In the midst of a technology revolution and the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), we all need to understand the relationship between humans and technology. Social media, data surveillance, biometrics, genomics and cryptocurrencies dominate news and public debate, but there is often little consideration given to issues like how our data could be used in the future, the risks of genomic research, or responsibility for decisions made by AI.

Techno argues that we are all responsible for contributing to how technology is used, to ensure that society will benefit from it. With clarity and purpose, Marcus Smith explores how technology is affecting government, individuals and society; and the need to act, before it’s too late. This must-read book offers critical insights on the emerging technologies we use every day and the implications for us.
