Resisting AI: An Anti-fascist Approach to Artificial Intelligence (Paperback)

£19.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is pervasive yet its implications for society are still poorly understood.

In this timely call to action, Dan McQuillan provides an analysis of AI's technology and its political effects. He traces the ways that AI resonates with contemporary political and social currents, from global austerity to the rise of the far right. Placing it alongside other modes of ordering, such as bureaucracy and speculative finance, he examines AI's intensification of social crisis and states of emergency.

Most importantly, he offers the reader an alternative vision of an anti-fascist AI rooted in feminist and decolonial politics, addressing matters of care through mutual aid and solidarity. He invites us to play an active part in AI's structural renewal through mechanisms like workers' and people's councils.

Academically rigorous, yet accessible to a socially engaged readership, this unique book will be of interest to all who wish to challenge the social logic of AI by reasserting the importance of the common good.
