Publisher's Summary

Technology is advancing faster than ever - but for better or for worse? On the one hand, astonishing technological developments from personalized genomics to self-driving cars to drones to artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. On the other hand, these very same technologies could raise the specter of a frightening and alienating future - eugenics, a jobless economy, complete loss of privacy, and an ever-worsening spiral of economic inequality. How can we make appropriate decisions about whether and how to adopt new technologies? Vivek Wadhwa and Alex Salkever propose that we ask three questions:



Does the technology have the potential to benefit everyone equally?
What are the risks and the rewards?
Does the technology more strongly promote autonomy or independence?

They subject a host of new and potential technologies to these questions, but ultimately it is up to the listener to make the final decision.

Very Insightful with an easy flow

Our world has changed tremendously since the day we were born and it will continue to change in ways we can't even imagine today. Looking at the How Technology Choices will create a new future, The Driver in the Driverless Car offers a comprehensive approach to shed a light on the different elements that will play a big role in our life such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Driverless Cars and more.

The overall structure of the book and its simplicity makes it easy compared that the topics covered are generally more complicated to understand by a non-technologist

The content is decent, but the delivery is lacking

While I enjoyed the actual content of the book, the reader sounds robotic and has odd inflections from time to time. The main thing keeping me from giving the content a five star rating is that it feels repetitive at times, and in my opinion the author was struggling to get to the desired book length (which isn't very long to start with).
