Synopsis "Will robots rule? Will commuting to the moon for work be routine? Are bionic beings and immortality inevitable? Evolution addresses these issues as it traces the recent evolution of technology and its impact on daily life, on society and on countries. It looks at how rapidly-advancing technology has affected day-to-day living in areas like health, education, finance and governance. It also elaborates the emerging challenges triggered by technology: cyber security, surveillance, climate change and nuclear war. Using his wisdom, knowledge and experience in areas ranging from space and atomic energy to information technology, Kiran Karnik generates discussion, spurs dissenting views and triggers further analysis—all originating from different perspectives, thereby helping the country to not only cope with the emerging future, but also to try shape it to the benefit of all. Rich in its detail and insight, Evolution will take you from nostalgia to an imagined future, narrated through personal anecdotes and experiences."
