520    "What happens when artificial intelligence saturates 
       political life and depletes the planet? How is AI shaping 
       our understanding of ourselves and our societies? Drawing 
       on more than a decade of research, award-winning scholar 
       Kate Crawford reveals how AI is a technology of extraction
       : from the minerals drawn from the earth, to the labor 
       pulled from low-wage information workers, to the data 
       taken from every action and expression. This book reveals 
       how this planetary network is fueling a shift toward 
       undemocratic governance and increased inequity. Rather 
       than taking a narrow focus on code and algorithms, 
       Crawford offers us a material and political perspective on
       what it takes to make AI and how it centralizes power. 
       This is an urgent account of what is at stake as 
       technology companies use artificial intelligence to 
       reshape the world."--|cProvided by publisher
