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.

Arianna Huffington (Founder/Thrive Global)

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?

Chris Anderson (Head/TED)

Truly one of the wisest and most surprising takes on AI. Kai-Fu Lee connects it with humans in a logical yet inspiring way. You’ll find this book illuminating and exciting in equal measure.

Alan Murray (President, CEO/FORTUNE)

Kai-Fu Lee may have the most comprehensive view of the global technology scene of any living person.

Peter Diamandis (Author, Founder/Singularity University)

Kai-Fu Lee is at the forefront of the coming AI revolution, helping us transcend the limitations of thought, reach, and vision. This seminal book on AI is a must read for anyone serious about understanding the future of our species.

Sebastian Thrun (Founder/Udacity)

A unique book by one of the leading pioneers of the field of AI. Kai-Fu Lee is a top notch researcher, business executive and investor. He tells the tale of AI - in China and the US - better than anyone else. A great read!

Robert Scoble (Blogger, author)

Kai-Fu Lee has a message for Westerners that should be heard loudly: the Chinese are coming and are positioned to dominate the AI era. As an American technologist, the book well laid out a cautionary tale for my fellow Silicon Valley inhabitants.

Erik Rostad (Creator/Books of Titans Project)

Finished it this morning. Incredible. I'd go so far as to suggest you stop what you're reading to read this one. It's a fantastic mix of AI and humanity with realistic fear and hope for the future. This was perfect timing for topics I've been thinking about lately.

Aidan Connolly (CEO/Caithus)

AI Superpowers by Kai-Fu Lee made me think a lot about the future world and the US vs. China influence on artificial intelligence & the next developments in it.

Amazon description

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.
