AI is changing what it means to be human. This is the unrivalled investigation into the impact of AI on how we live now.

'The intimate investigation of AI that we’ve been waiting for, and it arrives not a moment too soon.' – Shoshana Zuboff, author of The Age of Surveillance Capitalism

Through the voices of ordinary people in places far removed from Silicon Valley, Code Dependent explores the impact of a set of powerful, flawed, and often exploitative technologies on individuals, communities, and our wider society. Madhumita Murgia, AI Editor at the FT, exposes how AI can strip away our collective and individual sense of agency – and shatter our illusion of free will.

AI is already changing what it means to be human, in ways large and small. In this compelling work, Murgia reveals what could happen if we fail to reclaim our humanity.

'A nuanced, thoughtful and very accessible picture of a world deeply affected by AI' – Martha Lane Fox

'Highly readable and deeply important' – The Guardian

'Code Dependent is the No Logo of the 2020s' – The Times
