            In a groundbreaking blend of science and imagination, the former president of Google China and a leading writer of speculative fiction join forces to answer an urgent question: How will artificial intelligence change our world over the next twenty years? AI will be the defining i...ssue of the twenty-first century, but many people know little about it apart from visions of dystopian robots or flying cars. Though the term has been around for half a century, it is only now, Kai-Fu Lee argues, that AI is poised to upend our society, just as the arrival of technologies like electricity and smart phones did before it. In the past five years, AI has shown it can learn games like chess in mere hours-and beat humans every time. AI has surpassed humans in speech and object recognition, even outperforming radiologists in diagnosing lung cancer. AI is at a tipping point. What comes next? Within two decades, aspects of daily life may be unrecognizable. Humankind needs to wake up to AI, both its pathways and perils. In this provocative work that juxtaposes speculative storytelling and science, Lee, one of the world's leading AI experts, has teamed up with celebrated novelist Chen Qiufan to reveal how AI will trickle down into every aspect of our world by 2041. In ten gripping narratives that crisscross the globe, coupled with incisive analysis, Lee and Chen explore AI's challenges, as well as its potential to expand the possibilities of human life: - Ubiquitous AI that knows you better than you know yourself - Genetic fortune-telling that predicts risk of disease or even IQ - AI sensors that creates a fully contactless society in a future pandemic - Immersive personalized entertainment that challenges our notion of celebrity - Quantum computing, automated weapons, autonomous vehicles, and other leaps that eliminate some risks and create new ones By gazing toward a not-so-distant horizon, AI 2041 offers powerful insights and compelling storytelling for everyone interested in our col

            The New York Times-bestselling author of Rise of the Robots shows what happens as AI takes over our lives Imagine it's 2030. You call a bank to discuss your loan application, but you don't get to talk to a person. The bank's AI has spoken: you are denied. At home, feeling stresse...d, you take pills both invented and prescribed by AI to keep your blood pressure in check. You stream a video starring actors generated by machine. And before you turn in, you wonder if collaboration between Big Tech and China means you should choose a new AI provider for your home. As Martin Ford shows in Rule of the Robots, AI will soon flow through our lives like electricity does today, remaking every sphere of human activity. Yet even as Ford maps out AI's disquieting future, he shows how we can prepare for it, advocating for policies such as universal basic income and educational reform. It's crucial that we take his words to heart.
