  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

The bold account on the future of humanity in the face of AI proliferation receives nation-wide recognition

BENGALURU, Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Where Will Man Take Us? is Atul Jalan's eclectic yet candid account of humanity's accelerated evolution in the face of increased AI intervention. The book has been recognized as a National Bestseller by Penguin Random House India. It paints a truly fascinating portrait of human-AI co-existence in the domains of society, religion, intimacy and medicine among others. Guided by rationality, the book posits that the fusion of technology and biology will amplify the pace of human lives and its quality in the coming years.


Commenting on the recognition received by the book, Atul Jalan opines, "As a science storyteller, I have always been fascinated about taking science to a larger, non-scientiļ¬c population," comments Atul Jalan. "But this story, I believe, goes beyond my science storyteller job description. I really think that all of us must think and talk about these subjects for they are what our immediate future is all about. I am not being a pessimist here, for I really am happiest for what is to come. The marriage of technology and biology, when approached from a wise and rational perspective, can lead us towards a bright future. But we need to build that perspective. Which is what I am trying to do with Tomorrow Dialogues , my new venture. I hope my book helps with that, as well. I am grateful to Penguin Random House, for without them, this book probably wouldn't have happened, wouldn't have reached all these people."

Radhika Marwah, Commissioning Editor, Penguin Random House adds, "The resounding success of Where Will Man Take Us is evidence of the deep wonderment and curiosity that Indian audiences possess about the future which is hurtling at us uncomfortably fast. We, at Penguin Random House India, see Atul as a maverick science storyteller-one of the finest this country has produced-and look forward to publishing more of his work."

The success of Where Will Man Take Us? is a clear indication that science storytelling is gaining acceptance amongst audiences across the nation. As people are increasingly invested in learning how to coexist with emerging technologies, it is important to connect with audiences in a language they can comprehend and with examples that are familiar to them. Where Will Man Take Us? succeeds in doing so and shines a light on a rarely discussed aspect: the extent of innovation in futuristic tech from India. It asks pertinent questions about the humanity or godhead of future generations, the state of democracy given its innumerable loopholes, the state of societal institutions such as marriage, or will man finally ascend to godliness? Will future generations be as 'human' as present ones? What will happen to democracy? Or love? Or marriage? Or happiness? Most importantly, how will the ideas of jobs and money change? Atul Jalan tackles all of these and more, blending humor into technology for a racy, easy read. The fact is that - individuals and governments - are not ready for the future. As species they are not prepared enough. And Where Will Man Take Us? is a great place to start.

Where Will Man Take Us? is available on Amazon and Flipkart for Rs 399.
