Tim Hwang is a writer and AI policy researcher at Georgetown's Center for Security and Emerging Technology.
His book Subprime Attention Crisis poses the bold — and terrifying — possibility that the ad economy, the bedrock of the modern Internet, might be a bubble ready to burst. To build this argument Hwang explores the declining effectiveness and opacity in the digital ad market, then poses recommendations for taking the whole thing down.
