In the media (and will be discussed), the importance of the increasingly powerful artificial intelligence on our professional life in the future has been discussed intensively. A very interesting book that clearly identifies the risks, but also deals with possible solutions. In any case, readable and considerate!

How automation and IT innovation create social problems

There are countless books on the effects of artificial intelligence and automation on living and working in the 21st century. Probably none is as radical in its evaluation as “Rise of the Robots” by Martin Ford.

The Silicon Valley insider Ford draws a relentless picture of a dark virtual power that almost casually and unintentionally eliminates the rules of social life and economic laws:

If the advantage becomes a disadvantage

The fact that robots and computer technology only support the human intellect, that education is the key to individual success, that virtualization drives equal opportunities - today everything is right.

In the coming years, however, according to Ford the advantages are the opposite.

The ghosts that I called…

The constant doubling of computing power in ever shorter time units and the associated unstoppable expansion of Microchip technology in all areas of life takes its toll:

Traditional job descriptions are devalued or disappear entirely. New job profiles, on the other hand, focus on the performance of computers - not that of humans. It becomes a replacement product. And that doesn't just apply to factory workers ...

Mass unemployment as a waste product of IT madness

Ford argues in his book as a sharp future critic and can rely on his insider knowledge from 25 years of software development. However, it is not a question of questioning technological progress, but of highlighting the serious societal impacts that are often overlooked in the context of the record numbers for the performance expansions in the IT sector.

At the end... "Rise of the Robots" is a startling book that relentlessly reveals the hidden side of technological progress. Important reading for economists and responsible employers from the IT sector.
