YOGAi: Interplays of Yoga and  Artificial Intelligence 
by Sunil Malhotra 
 About the Book
"We can’t change the direction of the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”
When the dust settles on the hype around Ai, the world is likely to remain wildly unpredictable. Use this book as a starting point for understanding the human quest for truth, and creating technologies wisely to make our lives richer and the world a better place.
YOGAi is the result of the author’s professional experience, embellished by interactions with Dr. Karan Singh, Ervin Laszlo, Satish Kumar, John Maeda, Salim Ismail and other luminaries, making it a well-rounded treatise on the interplays of Yoga and Ai.
YOGAi makes Ai approachable by contextualising the evolution of technology. These technologies have crept upon us, even without our noticing, and yet when it comes to leveraging them, we still have a tendency to shy away. Technologies with broad, general applications in their early stages take an inordinate amount of time to emerge, but eventually their power becomes self-evident, and they take hold over society in disruptive ways.
Another goal of YOGAi is to make you accessible to yourself by contextualising the evolution of the human mind. Attention is brought to Yoga, narrowly understood as physical exercises from India, which in fact are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Yoga serves as a powerful tool for self-discovery, enabling individuals to explore their innermost selves and cultivate a deeper understanding of their identities, purpose, and connections to the world. Ultimately, the convergence of Yoga and Ai represents a pathway towards realising human potential and creating a more equitable and sustainable world for all.

About the Author
I like technology. And design.
But I like people even more. And the planet.
I have been an entrepreneur. Always.
Since 1985 I’ve championed interdisciplinary collaboration and human-centred design. As founder and CEO of Ideafarms, which brought Industrial Design approaches to IT, my focus is on investing in simple solutions combining eastern philosophies with western scientific methods.
I look at problems holistically using a combination of design, technology and societal elements. Aka systems thinking.
I connect dots and, more importantly, keep the human aspects of empathy, compassion and enthusiasm at the centre.
Everything created by humans is meant for use by other humans …
… therefore you can never go wrong if you keep human needs in the centre of your thinking; staying within the boundaries of ethics and sustainability, and making "Planet over People and People over Profit", your business mantra.
A spiritual orientation helps. Having championed the cause of spirituality in business for over thirty years, and helping leaders get on top of their challenges using Yogic and other practices, has enriched my journey. I have written The First Principal (2014) and YOGAi: Interplays of Yoga and Artificial Intelligence (2024).
