Soul of the Sea in the Age of the Algorithm
Author: Nishan Degnarain (Sidney Sussex 1998)
Publisher: Leete's Island Books
In this groundbreaking work, Nishan Degnarain and Gregory Stone set out not just how grave the problems facing our oceans are, but how solvable they can be. Weaving history, ecology, business and geopolitics together and leveraging their experience in oceans and some of the innovation hotspots around the world, they reveal the revolutionary tools and business models that could unleash trillions of dollars of new sustainable economic opportunities. Fourth industrial revolution technologies and exponential organisations, combined with fresh leadership and values from millennials, could create radically new solutions that were inconceivable only a few years ago.
Soul of the Sea in the Age of the Algorithm is at once a manifesto for a healthier ocean, a roadmap to a more prosperous co-existence with our planet, and a call for a new generation of systems leaders. The lessons here are not just for our oceans but guidance for how we can govern all our Global Commons for the benefit of the entire planet, both current and future generations. For the first time, the authors lay out clearly and succinctly what actions business, government, and individuals can take to overcome these planetary challenges, thereby restoring the soul of the sea, and redeeming our own.
