Book cover of Atlas of AI: Power, Politics, and the Planetary Costs of Artificial Intelligence by Kate Crawfordby Kate Crawford

The hidden costs of artificial intelligence, from natural resources and labor to privacy, equality, and freedom

“Eloquent, clear and profound—this volume is a classic for our times. It draws our attention away from the bright shiny objects of the new colonialism through elucidating the social, material and political dimensions of Artificial Intelligence.”—Geoffrey C. Bowker, University of California, Irvine

What happens when artificial intelligence saturates political life and depletes the planet? How is AI shaping our understanding of ourselves and our societies? In this book Kate Crawford reveals how this planetary network is fueling a shift toward undemocratic governance and increased racial, gender, and economic inequality.
