Taiwan-born Lee is perfectly positioned for the task."--New York Magazine "Both a provocative and readable distillation of the conventional wisdom on AI supremacy, as well as a challenge to it."--Financial Times "AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order, by Kai-Fu Lee, about the ways that artificial intelligence is reshaping the world and the economic upheaval new technology will generate. We need to start thinking now about how to address these gigantic changes."--Senator Mark Warner, when asked about the best book he's read all year, Politico "Kai-Fu Lee's smart analysis on human-AI coexistence is clear-eyed and a must-read. We must look deep within ourselves for the values and wisdom to guide AI's development." --Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft "In his brilliant book, Kai-Fu Lee applies his superpowers to predicting the disruptive shifts that will define the AI-powered future and proposes a revolutionary social contract that forges a new synergy between AI and the human heart." --Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO Salesforce "AI is surpassing human intelligence in more and more domains, transforming the planet.

"Truly one of the wisest and most surprising takes on AI. Kai-Fu Lee connects it with humans in a logical yet inspiring way. You'll find this book illuminating and exciting in equal measure." --Chris Anderson, Head of TED "In this riveting page-turner, one of the founding fathers of China's AI industry tells the inside story of China'a rise as an AI superpower, and shares his inspiring recipe for us flourishing rather than floundering with AI." --Prof. Max Tegmark, professor, MIT and bestselling author of Life 3.0: Being Human in the age of AI. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Artificial intelligence is more human than we think
By Ashain on 22 April 2020
Picked this up to learn about AI. Ended up learning far more than that.
Despite the never-ending scrolling and surfing, we do online, some books just make you feel like you've been living under a rock. This is one of those. Dr Lee shows the potential of AI while explaining how we must adapt in order to co-exist with AI.

"Never has the potential for human flourishing been higher, or the stakes of failure greater"
