Abstract:

Jamie Bartlett uncovers the reality behind Silicon Valley's glittering promise to build a better world. He visits Uber's lavish offices in San Francisco and hears how the company believes it is improving our cities. But in Hyderabad, India, Jamie sees the human consequences of Uber's utopian vision. Riding shotgun in a truck as it drives itself for more than a hundred miles on a highway, Jamie asks what the next wave of Silicon Valley's global disruption will mean for all of us. In search of answers, he gets a warning from an artificial intelligence pioneer who is replacing doctors with software. Jamie's journey ends in the remote island hideout of a former Facebook executive who has armed himself with a gun because he fears this new industrial revolution could lead to social breakdown and the collapse of capitalism.
