Neuromined: Triumphing over Technological Tyranny (Fast Company Press)
Friday, 04 August 2023

This book asks whether advances in technology are working for us or against us. Robert Edward Grant and Michael Ashley team up to explore significant questions such as will self-driving cars help us maximize our time and get to our destination safely, or will they erode the autonomy and freedom we feel when we drive ourselves, and what happens if the government, in the name of public health, gains access to the data in our handy fitness trackers and uses it to reward or limit us.

<ASIN:1639080341>

Each chapter imagines a near-future surveillance dystopia through a fictional tale and provides a companion analysis connecting the story to our present reality.
