Dr. Kai-Fu Lee—one of the world’s most respected experts on AI and China—reveals that China has suddenly caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid and unexpected pace.  

In AI Superpowers, Kai-fu Lee argues powerfully that because of these unprecedented developments in AI, dramatic changes will be happening much sooner than many of us expected. Indeed, as the US-Sino AI competition begins to heat up, Lee urges the US and China to both accept and to embrace the great responsibilities that come with significant technological power. Most experts already say that AI will have a devastating impact on blue-collar jobs. But Lee predicts that Chinese and American AI will have a strong impact on white-collar jobs as well. Is universal basic income the solution? In Lee’s opinion, probably not.  But he provides  a clear description of which jobs will be affected and how soon, which jobs can be enhanced with AI, and most importantly, how we can provide solutions to some of the most profound changes in human history that are coming soon.

"After thirty years of pioneering work in artificial intelligence at Google China, Microsoft, Apple and other companies, Lee says he’s figured out the blueprint for humans to thrive in the coming decade of massive technological disruption: 'Let us choose to let machines be machines, and let humans be humans.'"—Forbes

"Kai-Fu Lee believes China will be the next tech-innovation superpower and in his new (and first) book, AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order, he explains why. Taiwan-born Lee is perfectly positioned for the task."—New York Magazine

"Both a provocative and readable distillation of the conventional wisdom on AI supremacy, as well as a challenge to it."—Financial Times

"AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order, by Kai-Fu Lee, about the ways that artificial intelligence is reshaping the world and the economic upheaval new technology will generate. We need to start thinking now about how to address these gigantic changes."—Senator Mark Warner, when asked about the best book he's read all year, Politico

“Kai-Fu Lee's smart analysis on human-AI coexistence is clear-eyed and a must-read. We must look deep within ourselves for the values and wisdom to guide AI's development.” —Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft
 
“Kai-Fu Lee's experience as an AI pioneer, top investor, and cancer survivor has led to this brilliant book about global technology. AI Superpowers gives us a guide to a future that celebrates all the benefits that AI will bring, while cultivating what is unique about our humanity. It’s one of those books you read and think, ‘Why are people reading any other book right now when this is so clearly the one they need to be reading?’” —Arianna Huffington,  founder, HuffPost, and founder & CEO, Thrive Global.

“Kai-Fu Lee has a deep understanding of the science behind the recent progress in AI as well as of China's growth as an AI technological superpower. In this book, he shares illuminating insights on how AI is likely to transform our societies and change its economic and political landscapes, always with the eye of one who cares about humanity and asks us to choose our future wisely.” —Yoshua Bengio, scientific director of MILA, deep learning pioneer and co-author of Deep Learning

“Kai-Fu Lee may have the most comprehensive view of the global technology scene of any living person.” —Alan Murray, President, FORTUNE
 
“ AI is already presenting new economic opportunities – and new problems of governance – for the United States and China.  To deal with this breakthrough, we first must understand how it is being applied to transform our lives and our economies.  AI Superpowers is a superb primer on this important driver of change.” —George Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State

“The book offers a wise guide to how we, as individuals, should set our priorities each day, each month, and each year. And it offers an equally wise, global perspective on how society might build a future that harmonizes AI’s power to think with humanity’s distinctive capacities for love, service, and compassion.” —Jeffrey Lehman, vice chancellor, NYU-Shanghai, former president, Cornell University.
 
“In his insightful and heartfelt book, Kai-Fu Lee provides a history and roadmap for Artificial Intelligence from his unique, first-hand, multi-cultural perspective. This instant classic offers a clear-eyed assessment of the state of the art along with its likely impact on the future of work, wealth, and international competition — but it is also much more. Lee delivers his wisdom with characteristic clarity and humility, richly illustrated with inspirational stories and lessons drawn from his lifetime of professional and personal experiences. Every civic-minded engineer, entrepreneur, and public official should keep this book by his or her bedside as an inspirational reminder of what it means to lead a life of purpose and service.” —Jerry Kaplan, AI expert, serial entrepreneur, technical innovator, educator, bestselling author, and futurist
