The rapid rise of AI technology and its use has ushered in an era of revolutionary change. It has the potential to transform the social fabric fundamentally and alter humanity's future in ways we can't even fathom. This asks the question -- what ethical and moral ramifications will AI have in the future? Ashish K. Saxena explores AI and its ethical challenges in this thought-provoking book -- Society And The Machine. The author takes a deep dive into each facet of AI technology and its impact on societal behavior, including AI algorithms detecting and shaping user preferences on online platforms, forming echo chambers on the social media landscape, bias in journalism and politics, usage in healthcare, education, scientific research, art, business, policy-making, judiciary, and much more.

With this stimulating book, Ashish K. Saxena delves into a comprehensive analysis of AI tech and offers readers some valuable insights into its practical applications and the potential challenges it brings to the world. The author calls for awareness, transparency, and responsibility regarding the use of AI tech while appreciating its promising influence in medicine, robotics, wildlife conservation, climate-change analysis, linguistic and cultural inclusivity, and many other crucial facets of human civilization. Society And The Machine is an increasingly relevant book for our times. Saxena uses an accessible writing style, making the subject matter easy to grasp and very appealing to the reader. After reading this book, you will acquire a fundamental understanding of AI technology, its integration into society, as well as its likely challenges. I found this book very informative, educational, and inspiring. Highly recommended.
