Calum Chace is a best-selling author of fiction and non-fiction books and articles, focusing on the subject of artificial intelligence. His books include “Surviving AI”, a non-fiction book about the longer-term promise and the challenges of AI, and “Pandora's Brain”, a techno-thriller about the first superintelligence. His latest book, “The Economic Singularity”, addresses the prospect of widespread technological unemployment.
He is a regular speaker on artificial intelligence and related technologies and runs a blog on the subject. He also serves as chairman and coach for a selection of growing companies.
A long time ago, Calum studied philosophy at Oxford University, where he discovered that the science fiction he had been reading since boyhood was actually philosophy in fancy dress.
