Elizabeth Holmes, die Gründerin von Theranos, galt lange als der weibliche Steve Jobs. Das 19-jährige Start-Up-Wunderkind versprach, mit ihrer Firma die Medizinindustrie zu revolutionieren. Ein einziger Tropfen Blut sollte reichen, um Blutbilder zu erstellen und Therapien zu steuern – eine Riesenhoffnung für Millionen Menschen und ein extrem lukratives Geschäft.

Das Buch ist im DVA Verlag erschienen 24,00 Euro – auch bei Amazon zu bestellen.

Here are two well-known facts:
Artificial Intelligence is reshaping the world as we know it.
The United States has long been, and remains, the global leader in AI.

That first fact is correct. But in his provocative new book, Dr. Kai-Fu Lee—one of the world’s most respected experts on AI—reveals that China has suddenly caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid pace. As the US-Sino competition begins to heat up, Lee envisions China and the US forming a powerful duopoly in AI, but one that is based on each nation’s unique and traditional cultural inclinations.
