Rise of the Robots – Martin Ford

DATE: JAN/2017

OUTLINE: An eye opening  insight of how automation and  have changed things in the past and how they are likely to change the future.

REVIEW: Some parts of this books are incredibly insightful as they look over the disruption that robotics and machinery have caused in society and industries such as healthcare and manufacturing. A reasonable amount of discussion is given to AI and its future role and when you consider some of the existing capabilities it can certainly make you add ‘robots’ into your planning for the future. There are money jobs for instance that will be entirely wiped out with technology that already exists and thus you wouldn’t invest in a taxi cab firm, say, when that money would be better placed in tesla shares. Great read.
