Our brains have become a battlefield for Big Tech companies. They determine what we see and what we think. An all-encompassing power with huge consequences. French political scientist Asma Mhalla explains how we have become blind to these shifting power relations, and how we are acting as soldiers in the Big Tech army. How can we free ourselves from the grip of Big Tech, and recapture our autonomy?

Asma Mhalla is shining bright as a rising star among the cast of contemporary critical thinkers with the publication of her first book Technopolitique. As a researcher at the École des Hautes Études et Sciences Sociales, a lecturer at Sciences Po Paris and Columbia GC, and an expert for the European Research Executive Agency mandated by the European Commission, she works at the intersection of (geo)politics, technology and artificial intelligence.
