Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future (Paperback)



Book Title

 By Martin Ford 


Description: 

Artificial intelligence (AI) 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. The result could well be massive unemployment, inequality and the implosion of the consumer economy itself.

In Rise of the Robots, Martin Ford, 29th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference keynote speaker, provides you with an understanding of what accelerating technology means for the workplace of the not-too-distant future and the economic prospects for you and future generations.
