1. Exponential by Azeem Azhar: for big ideas on our relationship with technology
First up is Exponential: How accelerating technology is leaving us behind and what to do about it, by Azeem Azhar (Random House Business), the must-read big think book from a tech founder and start-up investor who is also the creator of UK tech analysis platform Exponential View. We are entering the “Exponential Age”, argues Azhar – between faster computers, better software and bigger data, ours is the first era in human history in which technology is constantly accelerating.
Fascinating, highly recommended and important
The problem is that human society can only ever adapt at a slower, incremental pace. The result is an “exponential gap” between the power of new technology and humans’ ability to keep pace, which creates problems at a societal level. Azhar shows a way to close this gap and bring the two slipstreams of tech and human life closer together so that we can make sense of the modern world and make our institutions fit for purpose.
Our judges called it a fascinating, highly recommended, important book that provides an accessible consideration of a challenging concept and a serious issue.
