內容簡介

  「從私人生活乃至網路攻擊,數位科技的未來無可避免,我們該如何自處?就讓這本書告訴你!」──CNN的主席和執行長暨《時代雜誌》執行編輯,《賈伯斯傳》作者Walter Isaacson力薦

  微軟總裁的肺腑之言
  我們身處的科技世代迸發著閃亮亮的希望,但也藏著黑洞洞的風險危機

  微軟總裁Brad Smith有個核心理念:如果你研發的科技改變了這個世界,那你就該為這個世界的未來走向負責。在科技變遷如此快速的時代,這話確實挺站得住腳。

  而今,科技已經發展到了另一個階段,它不再只是強而有力的工具,還是一項危險的武器,而人工智能的出現,讓科技不僅是人類的工具而已,進而將改寫這個時代對科技的定義。現在,科技公司擔負的責任比以前更重了,政府也深負監督的重任,勢必得加快訂定相關條例的腳步,以因應這日新月異的世代。

  隱私問題、網路犯罪、網路戰爭、社群軟體、人工智能的人倫議題、科技網絡導致的不平等、對民主制度的挑戰……這些都是過往不曾有過的難題,Brad Smith與Carol Ann Browne合力,從世界規模最大、最具影響力的科技公司談起,精采論述其深陷本時代的危機之中如何奮力一搏。

  結合對於產業發展綜觀全局的視角,俯瞰科技發展的走向;更運用自己身為專業律師的背景,務實的討論措施面的規劃──不只談論微軟,與其他公司所作的種種措施,書中論及的各項議題,都與我們的生活密切相關,如何讓科技成為人類一大利器,而非一大危害,是21世紀所有人的共同挑戰。(文/博客來編譯)

  “A colorful and insightful insiders’ view of how technology is both empowering us and threatening us. From privacy to cyberattacks, this timely book is a useful guide for how to navigate the digital future.” —Walter Isaacson

  From Microsoft's president and one of the tech industry's broadest thinkers, a frank and thoughtful reckoning with how to balance enormous promise and existential risk as the digitization of everything accelerates.

  Microsoft President Brad Smith operates by a simple core belief: When your technology changes the world, you bear a responsibility to help address the world you have helped create. This might seem uncontroversial, but it flies in the face of a tech sector long obsessed with rapid growth and sometimes on disruption as an end in itself. While sweeping digital transformation holds great promise, we have reached an inflection point. The world has turned information technology into both a powerful tool and a formidable weapon, and new approaches are needed to manage an era defined by even more powerful inventions like artificial intelligence. Companies that create technology must accept greater responsibility for the future, and governments will need to regulate technology by moving faster and catching up with the pace of innovation.

  In Tools and Weapons, Brad Smith and Carol Ann Browne bring us a captivating narrative from the cockpit of one of the world's largest and most powerful tech companies as it finds itself in the middle of some of the thorniest emerging issues of our time. These are challenges that come with no preexisting playbook, including privacy, cybercrime and cyberwar, social media, the moral conundrums of artificial intelligence, big tech's relationship to inequality, and the challenges for democracy, far and near. While in no way a self-glorifying "Microsoft memoir," the book pulls back the curtain remarkably wide onto some of the company's most crucial recent decision points as it strives to protect the hopes technology offers against the very real threats it also presents. There are huge ramifications for communities and countries, and Brad Smith provides a thoughtful and urgent contribution to that effort.

  Review

  “A clear, compelling guide to some of the most pressing debates in technology today.”—Bill Gates, from the foreword

  "Tools and Weapons reads like a techno-legal thriller, yet offers a thorough and eye-opening account of the major tech controversies of the last decade, from NSA spying through AI ethics and the US-China standoff. Brad Smith, a believer that "great power brings great responsibility" makes it evident that the future of humanity may depend on ethical and responsive leadership in the tech industries, and in this book he sets a high bar for his peers." —Tim Wu, author of The Curse of Bigness

  “This is a colorful and insightful insiders’ view of how technology is both empowering us and threatening us. From privacy to cyberattacks, this timely book is a useful guide for how to navigate the digital future.” —Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of The Innovators and Steve Jobs
 
  “Perhaps more than any industry leader, Brad Smith understands that technology is a double-edged sword—unleashing incredible opportunity but raising profound questions about democracy, civil liberties, the future of work and international relations. Tools and Weapons tackles these and other questions in a brilliant and accessible manner. It is a timely book that should be read by anyone seeking to understand how we can take advantage of technology’s promise without sacrificing our freedom, privacy or security.” —Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright
 
  “With clarity and candor, Brad Smith and Carol Ann Browne have crafted an indispensable guide to understanding and tackling the mightiest tech challenges of our time. Drawing on firsthand experience as well as the lessons of history, this perceptive volume shows that solutions will not be solely governmental nor corporate, but must involve collaboration across sectors and borders. Timely, essential reading for all who care about where the tech world goes next.” —Margaret O’Mara, author of The Code
 
  “Coming from an industry driven by disruption, it’s refreshing to read Brad Smith’s call for the tech sector to assume more responsibility. In Tools and Weapons, Brad and Carol Ann Browne wrestle with some of the world’s toughest technology challenges with common sense and valuable insight reflecting their inside experience. The ideas in Tools and Weapons won’t solve all our problems, but they’re a very good place to start.” —Reed Hastings, CEO, Netflix
 
  “At a time when many leaders in tech want to avoid a discussion of the social, economic, and security ramifications of the products they’ve built, it’s refreshing to see Brad Smith step up, urge the industry to take action, and acknowledge the need for smart regulation. This book offers an excellent encapsulation of some of the biggest challenges facing technologists, policymakers, and users alike.” —Senator Mark Warner
 
  “Brad Smith has emerged as a vocal and principled thought leader addressing how technology can either help uphold or undermine human rights. As digital technology continues to proliferate, these issues will only grow in importance and command more of the world’s attention.” —Amal Clooney, international human rights lawyer and co-founder and president, Clooney Foundation for Justice
