Details of the Path leading towards Daunting & Depressing future for humanity.

Beside covering the span on how and where the AI has been touching the daily life of the human society ( might look ignorantly brief touch points as of today ), David and Daniel has capsulated a very broad perspective on the factors what lead us to the present situation.

The confident economic policy advocates of the capitalist principles selling the idea of individualism has turned out to be charlatans with a very myopic and self greed as defining values with no interest towards anyone beyond self has been defining the course of United States of America ( which in turn sets the course of path for the majority of nations on this earth ).
Book has been elaborative to explain that how AI as a technology in itself is not evil but the way control of the same is shaping up in the human society, it cannot be remain alienated from inherent human vices.

The predictions of the bleak future of the middle class populated on earth is summed up with the practical and believable anecdotes. Where how the ideas like globalisation, outsourcing, loan & debt, etc promoted by economic forces in past has turned out to be gloomier than merrier for majority of the population.
The data facts stressed in the book might be daunting yet convincing, that why one should be scared on how the development on the AI is shaping up around us.

This is a good read.

Garbage app.

First couple of minutes on this app on the Indian version Absolute dismal UI, no filters for languages in discover section. The book collection in the Indian store is a joke and a very convoluted method of adding books into the app. This whole thing has potential but is far from being on everyone’s phones. The other versions might be good, but the Indian store is pathetic. The stars were given because of the quality of audio and narration, otherwise it would get none from me. Couldn’t even cancel my subscription without a pc. Ridiculous!
