Connected World

From Automated Work to Virtual Wars: The Future, By Those Who Are Shaping It

Summary

The world as we know it is changing. Driverless cars, drone deliveries and autonomous weapon systems are no longer the stuff of science fiction.

But what's next for technology and business, and how will it impact our society?

In Connected World, Philip Larrey of the Pontifical Lateran University explores the consequences of the new digital age in conversation with leaders including Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP, Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google's parent company Alphabet, and Maurice Lévy, CEO of Publicis Groupe.

Ranging from the death of privacy to the rise of artificial intelligence, Connected World asks the existential questions which will come to define our age.
