**A Sunday Times, Economist, Prospect and Financial Times Book of the Year** **SHORTLISTED FOR THE FT BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2023** AI. SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY. QUANTUM COMPUTING. Everything is about to change. This is the only book you need to understand this new world. From the ultimate AI insider, Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of DeepMind, part of Google. 'Fascinating, well-written, and important' Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens 'Deeply rewarding and consistently astonishing' Stephen Fry 'An excellent guide for navigating unprecedented times' Bill Gates Soon you will live surrounded by AIs. They will organise your life, operate your business, and run core government services. You will live in a world of DNA printers and quantum computers, engineered pathogens and autonomous weapons, robot assistants and abundant energy. None of us are prepared. As co-founder of the pioneering AI company DeepMind, part of Google, Mustafa Suleyman has been at the centre of this revolution. The coming decade, he argues, will be defined by this wave of powerful, fast-proliferating new technologies. In The Coming Wave, Suleyman shows how these forces will create immense prosperity but also threaten the nation-state, the foundation of global order. As our fragile governments sleepwalk into disaster, we face an existential dilemma: unprecedented harms on one side and the threat of overbearing surveillance on the other. Can we forge a narrow path between catastrophe and dystopia? This ground-breaking book from the ultimate AI insider establishes 'the containment problem' - the task of maintaining control over powerful technologies - as the essential challenge of our age. 'A stunning book by a man at the very centre of the AI revolution' Rory Stewart 'Essential reading' Daniel Kahneman Confused by the current furore about AI? This book is a good place to start Financial Times, Books of the Year 2023 **A Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller, Sept 2023**
