Michael Steep's First Light of Day blends fiction with coming technology

Techstination feature for Tuesday, February 25, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Michael Steep has a long and storied career working with many of the best known names in technology.   Today he is founder and executive director of Stanford University School of Engineering’s Disruptive Technology & Digital Cities Program…and the author of a new book titled First Light of Day.   It’s a cautionary work about AI and more blending fiction and non fiction…

“What I really wanted to do is find a mechanism that would allow people to see in the future what the impact of all this is to society and then be able to empathize with the characters who are dealing with it.  The second part of the book is a compendium, factual, of all the disruptive technology that is driving actually some of the assumptions in the book.”

Raising issues and provoking thought about decisions that are looming in our not too distant future.   First Light of Day …by Michael Steep.
