Martin Ford / Rise of the Robots
RISE OF THE ROBOTS: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future is the newest book by artificial intelligence entrepreneur Martin Ford. In it, Ford predicts a stark vision of the future of automation and explains how any job considered “predictable” may someday be replaced by an algorithm. Artificial intelligence is already well on its way to replacing paralegals, physicians, and even, ironically, computer programmers. Come hear Ford’s explanation of how robots will effect not only the workforce but politics and the economy too.
