Summary AI has unparalleled transformative potential to reshape society, our economies and our working lives, but without legal scrutiny, international oversight and public debate, we are sleepwalking into a future written by algorithms which encode racist, sexist and classist biases into our daily lives - an issue that requires systemic political and cultural change to productively address. Leading privacy expert Ivana Bartoletti exposes the reality of the AI revolution, from the low-paid workers who toil to train algorithms to recognise cancerous polyps, to the rise of techno-racism and techno-chauvinism and the symbiotic relationship between AI and right wing populism. An Artificial Revolution is an essential primer to understand the intersection of technology and geopolitical forces shaping the future of civilisation.* Endorsements confirmed from leading UK political figures including David Lammy MP, Yvette Cooper MP, Paul Mason, Frances O'Grady and Ayesha Hazarika* A primer for anyone who is interested to learn more about the relation between AI and ethics, data and privacy, corporate power, politics and tech* Ivana is a sought-after commentator who has appeared on flagship news programmes on the BBC, Sky and other major broadcasters as a privacy and AI ethics expert, who also speaks at conferences around the world on AI and privacy.
