There were many great technology books published in 2019, but here are ten that I found particularly insightful. If you are unfamiliar with these works, I suggest you give them a read.

Tools and Weapons: The Promise and the Peril of the Digital Age,

by Brad Smith and Carol Ann Browne

Microsoft President Brad Smith together with Carol Ann Browne provide a story of the evolution of technology from their vantage point at Microsoft. They highlight challenges that have arisen, including cybercrime and cyberwar, social media issues, moral issues related to artificial intelligence, and even the challenges to democracy. Smith provides interesting insights into the decisions Microsoft leadership, himself included, of course, have faced, and the broader implications for society at large.

by Tom Siebel

Tom Siebel argues that the confluence of four technologies—elastic cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things —will change the way in which business and government operate going forward. As he also noted in my recent interview with him, there is a blueprint companies can follow in order to take full advantage of these four technologies and sustain competitive advantage in the process.
