Description

How Accelerating Technology Is Leaving Us Behind and What to Do About It

We are entering the Exponential Age. Between faster computers, better software and bigger data, ours is the first era in human history in which technology is constantly accelerating.

Azeem Azhar – writer, technologist, and creator of the acclaimed Exponential View newsletter – understands this shift better than anyone. Technology, he argues, is developing at an increasing, exponential rate. But human society – from our businesses to our political institutions – can only ever adapt at a slower, incremental pace. The result is an ‘exponential gap’, between the power of new technology and our ability to keep up.

In Exponential, Azhar shows how this exponential gap can explain our society’s most pressing problems – from established businesses’ difficulty keeping up with digital platforms, to the sclerotic response of liberal democracies to fast-moving social problems. And he draws on cutting-edge social science to explain how to stop the exponential gap eroding our economies, our politics and our lives.

Exponential technology is upending our society. This book explains how.
