Rise of the Robots
Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future
by Martin Ford
We all know that technology is getting eerily good at doing the things that humans have been doing for a long time. So, will robots eventually take over? Will we lose our jobs, or will new ones be created? Artificial intelligence is already well on its way to making “good jobs” obsolete: many paralegals, journalists, office workers, and even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by robots and smart software. As progress continues, blue and white-collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- and middle-class families ever further. Rise of the Robots is essential reading to understand what accelerating technology means for our economic prospects and for society as a whole.
