Another stirring critique of the modern condition of the former Newsnight editor and author of Postcapitalism. Mason examines the sinister implications of artificial intelligence and the dystopian scenario of a world run by machines, who knows us better than ourselves. A passionate defense of the humanity and work of radical optimism, the international bestselling author of Postcapitalism How do we preserve what makes us human in an age of uncertainty? Now we are only consumers, shaped by market forces? A sequence of DNA? A collection of base instincts? Or there will be soon be replaced by algorithms and A. I. anyway? In a Clear, Brilliant Future, Paul Mason calls for a radical, passionate defense of the human being, our universal rights and fundamental freedoms, and our power to change the world around us. Ranging from economics to Big Data, from neuroscience to culture wars, he draws from his ground reporting from mass protests in the province of Istanbul riots in Washington, as well as his childhood in an English mining community, to show how the notion of humanity has become eroded as never before. In this book, Paul Mason argues that we are still able – through the language, through innovation and cooperation – to shape our future. He offers a vision of human beings in more than puppets, customers, or the gears of a machine. This work of radical optimism asks: do you want to be controlled? Or do you want something better?
