Winner of the 2015 FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award A New York Times Bestseller Top Business Book of 2015 at Forbes One of NBCNews.com 12 Notable Science and Technology Books of 2015 What are the jobs of the future? How many will there be? And who will have them? As technology continues to accelerate and machines begin taking care of themselves, fewer people will be necessary. Artificial intelligence 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. As progress continues, blue and white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- and middle-class families ever further. At the same time, households are under assault from exploding costs, especially from the two major industries-education and health care-that, so far, have not been transformed by information technology. The result could well be massive unemployment and inequality as well as the implosion of the consumer economy itself. The past solutions to technological disruption, especially more training and education, aren't going to work. We must decide, now, whether the future will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic levels of inequality and economic insecurity. Rise of the Robots is essential reading to understand what accelerating technology means for our economic prospects-not to mention those of our children-as well as for society as a whole.

Computer sind mittlerweile so intelligent geworden, dass die nächste industrielle Revolution unmittelbar bevorsteht. Wer profitiert, wer verliert? Antworten auf diese Fragen bietet das neue Buch der Technologie-Profis Erik Brynjolfsson und Andrew McAfee. Seit Jahren arbeiten wir mit Computern - und Computer für uns. Mittlerweile sind die Maschinen so intelligent geworden, dass sie zu Leistungen fähig sind, die vor Kurzem noch undenkbar waren: Sie fahren Auto, sie schreiben eigene Texte - und sie besiegen Großmeister im Schach. Dieser Entwicklungssprung ist nur der Anfang. In ihrem neuen Buch zeigen zwei renommierte Professoren, welch atemberaubende Entwicklungen uns noch bevorstehen: Die zweite industrielle Revolution kommt! Welche Auswirkungen wird das haben? Welche Chancen winken, welche Risiken drohen? Was geschieht dabei mit den Menschen, was mit der Umwelt? Und was werden Gesellschaft und Politik tun, um die Auswirkungen dieser "neuen digitalen Intelligenz" für alle bestmöglich zu gestalten? Dieses Buch nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise in eine Zukunft, die schon längst begonnen hat.

Künstliche Intelligenz wird immer intelligenter. Algorithmen machen unser Leben leichter, angenehmer, sicherer ... doch die Entwicklung hat auch eine gravierende Kehrseite: Immer mehr Menschen werden von der Technik verdrängt. Jobs für gering Qualifizierte, zum Beispiel in Fast-Food-Ketten und Supermärkten, fallen weg. Doch auch hoch Qualifizierte wie Radiologen werden von Computern ausgestochen, die deutlich schneller – und zuverlässiger – Diagnosen erstellen können.

This is a summary of the original book Rise of the Robots by Martin Ford. What are the jobs of the future? How many will there be? And who will have them? We might imagine-and hope-that today's industrial revolution will unfold like the last: even as some jobs are eliminated, more will be created to deal with the new innovations of a new era. In Rise of the Robots, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford argues that this is absolutely not the case. As technology continues to accelerate and machines begin taking care of themselves, fewer people will be necessary. Artificial intelligence 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. As progress continues, blue and white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- and middle-class families ever further. At the same time, households are under assault from exploding costs, especially from the two major industries-education and health care-that, so far, have not been transformed by information technology. The result could well be massive unemployment and inequality as well as the implosion of the consumer economy itself. In Rise of the Robots, Ford details what machine intelligence and robotics can accomplish, and implores employers, scholars, and policy makers alike to face the implications. The past solutions to technological disruption, especially more training and education, aren't going to work, and we must decide, now, whether the future will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic levels of inequality and economic insecurity. Rise of the Robots is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand what accelerating technology means for their own economic prospects-not to mention those of their children-as well as for society as a whole. This summary is available in a variety of formats, and is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour all 352 pages. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. It fills the gap, making you understand more while enhancing your reading experience.

Inzwischen hat der Mensch das Rennen gegen die Maschine auch auf Gebieten verloren, die noch vor zehn Jahren als Domäne des Menschen galten - mit positiven wie negativen Folgen. Gehen wir mit den Maschinen anstatt gegen sie ins Rennen, können wir die Welt nachhaltig besser und gerechter machen. Dazu liefern die Autoren konkrete Handlungsanweisungen für Politik und Gesellschaft.

Drei Dinge wissen wir: Der Kapitalismus hat den Feudalismus abgelöst; seither durchlief er zyklische Tiefs, spätestens seit 2008 stottert der Motor. Was wir nicht wissen: Erleben wir eine der üblichen Krisen oder den Anbruch einer postkapitalistischen Ordnung? Paul Mason blickt auf die Daten, sichtet Krisentheorien – und sagt: Wir stehen am Anfang von etwas Neuem. Er nimmt dabei Überlegungen auf, die vor über 150 Jahren in einer Londoner Bibliothek entwickelt wurden und laut denen Wissen und intelligente Maschinen den Kapitalismus eines Tages »in die Luft sprengen« könnten. Im Zeitalter des Stahls und der Schrauben, der Hierarchien und der Knappheit war diese Vision so radikal, dass Marx sie schnell in der Schublade verschwinden ließ. In der Welt der Netzwerke, der Kooperation und des digitalen Überflusses ist sie aktueller denn je. In seinem atemberaubenden Buch führt Paul Mason durch Schreibstuben, Gefängniszellen, Flugzeugfabriken und an die Orte, an denen sich der Widerstand Bahn bricht. Mason verknüpft das Abstrakte mit dem Konkreten, bündelt die Überlegungen von Autoren wie Thomas Piketty, David Graeber, Jeremy Rifkin und Antonio Negri und zeigt, wie wir aus den Trümmern des Neoliberalismus eine gerechtere und nachhaltigere Gesellschaft errichten können.
