Book Summary: In Law in an Era of “Smart” Technology, the author, Susan Brenner analyzes the complex and evolving interactions between law and technology and provides a thorough and detailed account of the law in technology at the beginning of the 21st century.
Should law be technologically neutral, or should it evolve as human relationships with technology become more advanced? Susan Brenner explains how older technologies rely on human implementation, but new “smart” technology will be completely automated, and this will eventually lead to, the fusion of human physiology and technology.

The book provides a detailed, historically-grounded explanation as to why our traditional relationship with technology is evolving and why a corresponding shift in the law is imminent and necessary.

Book Summary: In The Industries of the Future, Alec Ross(an American technology policy expert and the former Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State) examines the industries that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets.


In each of these fields, Ross addresses the toughest questions:
1. How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work?
2. Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race?
3. How can the worldโ€™s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with its own innovation hotspots?
4. What can todayโ€™s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow?

Combining storytelling and economic analysis, Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization.

Ross spends time exploring “Code” and how the codification of money and also weapons (computer security) will both benefit and potentially disrupt our international economies. Ross also looks at how data will be “the raw material of the information age.

This book was chosen because, for lawyers to efficiently anticipate legislative and regulatory changes while performing their broad legal functions, they would need to understand what kind of industries would really exist.
