Four Battlegrounds

Power in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

A new industrial revolution has begun. Like mechanization or electricity before it, artificial intelligence will touch every aspect of our lives—and cause profound disruptions in the balance of global power, especially among the AI superpowers: China, the United States, and Europe. Four key elements define this struggle: data, computing power, talent, and institutions. Four Battlegrounds takes readers inside the fierce competition to develop and implement this game-changing technology and dominate the future.

Engaging and direct, Four Battlegrounds offers a vivid picture of how AI is transforming warfare, global security, and the future of human freedom—and what it will take for democracies to remain at the forefront of the world order.
