    "We are approaching a critical threshold in the history of our
    species. Everything is about to change.

    "Soon you will live surrounded by AIs. They will organize 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 center 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, the threat of overbearing
    surveillance on the other.

    "Can we forge a narrow path between catastrophe and dystopia?
    Is it possible to contain the threat of AI?

    "This groundbreaking 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.
