The Coming Wave by: Mustafa Suleyman

Your Presenter: Malcolm Coon

Our first event for 2024 will be on January 5th and revolves around Mustafa Suleyman’s book, “The Coming Wave,” a New York Times bestseller addressing the imminent risks posed by AI and fast-developing technologies to global order. Suleyman, co-founder of DeepMind, delves into a critical moment in human history where AI will permeate every aspect of life, from business operations to government services, promising immense prosperity but also posing unprecedented threats.

The book explores how these advancements might redefine our lives, introducing DNA printers, quantum computers, autonomous weapons, and more, while emphasizing the unpreparedness of individuals and governments for this imminent transformation. Suleyman outlines the “containment problem,” the challenge of maintaining control over these potent technologies, as the pivotal issue of our era.

Why attend? The event promises insights into navigating this transformative wave and understanding the delicate balance between leveraging technological advancements for prosperity while averting potential catastrophic consequences. With the books endorsements from influential figures like Yuval Noah Harari, Daniel Kahneman, and Bill Gates, this event offers a unique opportunity to grasp the urgency and implications of these accelerating technological shifts.

Malcolm Coon, Executive Book Review presenter, will guide you through the book’s key points, and will highlight the important elements about the book that you can utilize in your professional or personal life.
