    About the book

    "AI poses a real and present danger. It contains the capacity to amplify social problems, drive a wedge further into our already-polarized society, and sow seeds of distrust in communities and personal relationships. When approached without a robust sense of human dignity,AI also threatens to undermine our self-understanding. To a degree beyond any previous technology, AI can make us forget ourselves. In this new era of AI, we must consciously make a choice: to stay human. In this book I provide a map and the tools for doing just that." (From the author, Joseph Vukov)

    “Vukov helps us understand the complexity of the issues involved with Artificial Intelligence in such a way that we are unafraid to access the opportunities of AI–while at the same time firmly “staying human” in the face of powerful forces pushing us in very different and dangerous directions.”
