'This year I published Future Politics: Living Together in a World Transformed by Tech (Oxford University Press). 

 

Future Politics

The book is about the ways in which digital technology, from AI to the internet of things, will transform the nature of power, freedom, democracy and justice. I took time out of my practice as a barrister to embark on a book tour to the US, which took in Harvard, Stanford, and Microsoft among other destinations. Here in the UK I’ve been delighted to present my ideas at the LSE and the British Academy, as well as on the BBC’s Politics Live. The Guardian described Future Politics as “crucial reading…superb and necessary” and the Sunday Times commented that it “steers a course to the future that is as convincing as it is shocking.” '
