About this title


The new industrial revolution - where machines, artificial intelligence, and automation are creating a huge disruption in the job market - is filling the news with headlines that spread fears and worries about the uncertain future of work. Robots and algorithms will make many occupations obsolete, leaving millions of people without jobs. For the first time in history, industry is not creating near enough new jobs to meet the number of jobs that will be lost. As a result, a huge number of people will be pushed into poverty, causing massive unrest. A recent development in narrow AI (artificial intelligence), especially in transport and healthcare, is the great testimony to this trend. But there is a hope. We can change the system. We can tweak the rules just a bit and yet achieve significant effects. Many issues we are experiencing now are rooted in the way we perceive the physical and social world around us. By changing the system, we will all change along with it. This book is a humble attempt to find answers for the challenges we are experiencing now and will face in the future. At the same time, this is an author’s response to the books “Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That's OK,” by Federico Pistono; “Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future,” by Martin Ford; "The Moneyless Man," by Mark Boyle; “Race Against the Machine” by Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson; and many others. Solutions presented in this book are intended to show that it is possible to live in a highly-automated society, without the need to revert to the Stone Age; that technology and the system, if done properly, can work with nature, not against it; and that humans can have high standards of living without a future economic crisis.
