‘Cold War 2.0 – Artificial Intelligence in the New Battle between China, Russia, and America’ scrutinizes the role of artificial intelligence, military coordination, missile defense systems, advanced semiconductor chips, quantum computers, and bio-engineering in shaping the conflict between democracy and autocracy, and explores how Western democracies can navigate these challenges to ultimately triumph.

Takach holds a bachelor’s degree in history, political economy, and philosophy from the University of Toronto; a graduate degree from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University; and a law degree from the University of Toronto. For forty years, he practiced technology law at McCarthy Tétrault, one of Canada’s premier law firms. He has written three books on technology law/tech commercial subjects. This is his first book for a general audience. He lives in Toronto.
