Rise of the Robots: Technology & the Threat of a Jobless Future

Rise of the Robots: Technology & the Threat of a Jobless Future by Martin Ford
2015 | ISBN: 0465059996 | English | 352 pages | PDF | 4 MB

What are the jobs of the future? How many will there be? & who will have them? We might imagine—& hope—that today's industrial revolution will unfold like the last: even as some jobs are eliminated, more will be created to deal with the new innovations of a new era. In Rise of the Robots, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford argues that this is absolutely not the case. As technology continues to accelerate & machines begin taking care of themselves, fewer people will be necessary. Artificial intelligence is already well on its way to making “good jobs" obsolete: many paralegals, journalists, office workers, & even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by robots & smart software. As progress continues, blue & white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- & middle-class families ever further. At the same time, households are under assault from exploding costs, especially from the two major industries—education & health care—that, so far, have not been transformed by information technology. The result could well be massive unemployment & inequality as well as the implosion of the consumer economy itself.

In Rise of the Robots, Ford details what machine intelligence & robotics can accomplish, & implores employers, scholars, & policy makers alike to face the implications. The past solutions to technological disruption, especially more training & education, aren't going to work, & we must decide, now, whether the future will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic levels of inequality & economic insecurity. Rise of the Robots is essential reading for anyone who wants to underst& what accelerating technology means for their own economic prospects—not to mention those of their children—as well as for society as a whole.
