Description

In The Rise of the Robots, Silicon Valley insider Martin Ford explains the real reason why inequality is rife in the world today: technology. He grippingly shows how artificial intelligence is already well on its way to making many traditional middle class jobs obsolete and it’s going to get worse: within the next two decades, half the professions we currently do will no longer exist, from doctors to computer programmers. 
Unless we reassess the fundamentals of how our economy and politics work, he convincingly argues that we risk a future of massive unemployment and inequality. 
‘Speaks with special credibility, insight, and verve. Business people, policy makers, and professionals of all sorts should read this book right away—before the ‘bots steal their jobs.’ Kenneth Cukier , Data Editor for the Economist
