Tech experts Vivek Wadhwa and Alex Salkever describe dozens of astonishing technological advances in this fascinating and thought-provoking book which asks what kind of future lies ahead - Star Trek or Mad Max.

Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics drones self-driving vehicles and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier safer and easier. On the other hand the same technologies raise the spectre of a frightening future - eugenics a jobless economy a complete loss of privacy and ever-worsening economic inequality.

Wadhwa says that we need to ask three questions about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are the risks and the rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? This edition is updated throughout and includes a new chapter on quantum computing which promises exponentially reduced processing times - and vastly increased security risks. There's also a bonus section about advances in cancer treatment and how India will play a critical role in this space. In the end our future is up to us; our hands may not be on the wheel but we will decide the driverless car's destination.
