How automation and IT innovation create social problems


There are countless books on the impact of artificial intelligence and automation on living and working in 21. Century. Probably none is as radical in its rating as "Rise of the Robot" 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 altogether. On the other hand, new occupational images emphasize the performance of computers - not those of humans. He will become an exchange product. And that's not just true of 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.

Conclusion: "Rise of the Robots" is a rousing book that relentlessly reveals the hidden side of technological progress. Important reading for economists and responsible employers in the IT sector.
