Summary

Adam Savage, Mythbuster and editor-in-chief of Tested.com, and pioneering tech disrupter Drew Curtis explore what happens after the next tidal wave of innovations changes the world as we know it: what are the big surprises, threats, and challenges we will face, and how can we make flying cars a reality instead of robot overlords?

In Don’t Give Guns to Robots, Adam Savage and Drew Curtis use seven of the biggest imminent technological changes that our society will face over the next twenty to thirty years—from driverless cars, asteroid mining and immortality to organic computers that can cure cancer from inside our bodies—as a jumping off place to discuss what our near and not-so-distant future may look like. They delve into all the possible paths the future may take—some good, some bad, and some that sound like the plot of a really wild sci-fi novel, helping us prepare for the massive changes that will affect our lives.

What is going to happen in the near future? What should we fear and what can we stop worrying about? How can we prepare for it? And most importantly, what can and should be done right this instant to mitigate unintended consequences?

Weaving together interviews from the most innovative and brilliant thought leaders of our generation including Stewart Brand, Peter Diamandis, Astro Teller, Sheryl Connelly, and James Cameron, Don't Give Guns to Robots explores many of the possible unanticipated repercussions of technological innovations and is an illuminating, entertaining, and illustrated guide for preparing ourselves for tomorrow.
