Tools and Weapons: Paperback out now
Can the world control the technology it creates? The technology sector has created unprecedented platforms for progress, connecting people across the globe like never before. But today's technologies have also unleashed many of the thorniest issues of our time, from cyber warfare to the spread of misinformation on social media, to tension between U.S. and Europe. Microsoft president Brad Smith believes that when your technology changes society, you bear a responsibility for the world you have created. He argues that as technology advances, the work to oversee it—led by both the tech industry and governments—needs to speed up as well. How can today's leaders manage powerful technologies like artificial intelligence and keep up with the demand for new technologies, while also supporting the development of tomorrow's life-changing innovations and meet the global demands of digital sovereignty? Tools and Weapons: The Promise and Peril of the Digital Age from Microsoft President Brad Smith and Carol Ann Browne is now out in paperback with additional chapters and revisions. It presents an insightful and actionable plan to harness the power of today's technology while tackling the threats of an increasingly digitized world. Order it here.
