A Very Human Future acknowledges the powerful technological shifts reshaping our world and the commercial and competitive drive from companies and countries to be leaders in the race to dominate world changing fields such as AI, blockchain, and genomics. Indeed, the central argument of the book is that we cannot and probably should not try to hold back innovation. Instead the book argues that we need to overturn the death grip of decaying orthodoxies and assumptions. A Very Human Future is a call to experiment with a range of actions and initiatives to prepare ourselves for a radically different world and range of possible futures - because we simply don't know if AI and its disruptive cousins will eliminate more jobs than they create.

As lead author, Rohit has been captivating audiences across the globe from California, DC, and New York to Singapore, St. Petersberg and Dubai, pulling no punches on the hurdles we must overcome. He has been inspiring attendees to go beyond expressing concern to starting practical trials of actions that individuals, businesses, governments, and society can undertake to begin preparing for fundamental and unpredictable shifts in everything we take for granted from employment to schooling.

A Very Human Future presents a hard hitting twelve point manifesto of how we can prepare ourselves for deep disruption and backs up these core themes with a range of ideas and actions through which we can start to experiment our way through the potential shocks to employment, civil society, and the economy.

"Each chapter looks at how new ideas enabled by emerging technologies are straining the old social fabric, and proposes radical future scenarios, strategies, and actions to safeguard humanity from harm and enhance opportunity for all. The scale of the new technologies requires a protective logic for moving forward, keeping humanity at the centre of the story so that we avoid dehumanizing ourselves and future generations." ~Alexandra Whittington
