Atul Jalan is fascinated by one thing—life-technology intersections. According to him, we are living in a unique age in which the biology we inherited is merging with the technology we have created. What is helming these changes are AI, genetic engineering, nanotechnology and quantum computing. The implications of each of them are elaborated in the book. To say they are wide-reaching would be an understatement. We will be able to create our ideal partner with all our likes and dislikes programmed in. Surveillance states will monitor everything from our pulses to our preferences. Have you ever wondered whether you and I are ‘evolved Marios’ in someone’s game? Or whether data is going to be the next God? Wonder no more. Just go pick up a copy of the book.
Where Will Man Take Us?
