First, some great news to share! Thanks to popular demand, my book Technology vs Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine which readers have taken to calling “A Welcome Rebuttal Of The Hype From The Singularity Crowd,” is now available both as an audiobook (in EN, ES, PT). We have also launched a free podcast-version in English, Spanish, and Portuguese on all major audiobook and podcasting platforms like Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Play, etc… (only the first 3 chapters of the book are available on this free podcast).
If the above links don’t work, yet, just search for “Gerd Leonhard” in your audiobook or podcast player of choice. Alternatively, you can buy it directly from my author store here or on any audiobook platform, such as Audible.
So, if you are interested in diving into the 10 world-altering, technological and societal megashifts like AI, automation, IoT and the myriad of other waves poised to transform life as we know it, check out the book today and find out why it has over one hundred 4.2 star reviews on Amazon and another 237 ratings on Goodreads. Here’s the book website.
I hope you enjoy what I sought to be a RESET BUTTON for a more human-centric future and would love to hear what you think!
Now, on to my usual best snippets and finds from the past week.
