Rise of the robots : technology and the threat of a jobless future by Martin Ford( Book )

29 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Silicon Valley the phrase "disruptive technology" is tossed around on a casual basis. No one doubts that technology has the power to devastate entire industries and upend various sectors of the job market. But Rise of the Robots asks a bigger question: Can accelerating technology disrupt our entire economic system to the point where a fundamental restructuring is required? Companies like Facebook and YouTube may only need a handful of employees to achieve enormous valuations, but what will be the fate of those of us not lucky or smart enough to have gotten into the great shift from human labor to computation?"--
The rise of the robots : technology and the threat of mass unemployment by Martin Ford( )

21 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intelligent algorithms are already well on their way to making white collar jobs obsolete: travel agents, data-analysts, and paralegals are currently in the firing line. In the near future, doctors, taxi-drivers and ironically even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by 'robots'. Without a radical reassessment of our economic and political structures, we risk the very implosion of the capitalist economy itself ... In The Rise of the Robots, technology expert Martin Ford systematically outlines the achievements of artificial intelligence and uses a wealth of economic data to illustrate the terrifying societal implications. From health and education to finance and technology, his warning is stark - all jobs that are on some level routine are likely to eventually be automated, resulting in the death of traditional careers and a hollowed-out middle class. The robots are coming and we have to decide - now - whether the future will bring prosperity or catastrophe
The lights in the tunnel : automation, accelerating technology and the economy of the future by Martin Ford( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A computer engineer from Silicon Valley employs a powerful thought experiment to explore the economy of the future. An imaginary "tunnel of lights" is used to visualize the economic implications of the new technologies that are likely to appear in the coming years and decades. Challenged are nearly all conventional views of the future and the danger that lies ahead if we do not plan for the impact of rapidly advancing technology is illuminated. It also offers unique insights into how technology will intertwine with globalization to shape the remainder of the 21st century, and explores ways in which the economic realities of the future might offer new approaches to addressing global challenges such as poverty and climate change
Aufstieg der Roboter wie unsere Arbeitswelt gerade auf den Kopf gestellt wird - und wie wir darauf reagieren müssen by Martin Ford( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

De opmars van robots : hoe technologie veel banen zal doen verdwijnen by Martin Ford( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Dutch and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uiteenzetting over de steeds verdergaande automatisering en de opmars van de informatietechnologie die grote werkloosheid en sociale ongelijkheid tot gevolg kunnen hebben
L'avènement des machines : robots & intelligence artificielle : la menace d'un avenir sans emploi by Martin Ford( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique :"Quels seront les emplois du futur ? Combien y en aura-t-il ? Qui les obtiendra ? A mesure que le rythme de la technologie s'accélère, la substitution du travail humain par les machines rend obsolètes les emplois dans presque tous les domaines. Dans cet ouvrage très documenté, Martin Ford révèle comment la technologie est en train de saper les fondements de notre économie, jusqu'à précariser la classe moyenne. Salariés du tertiaire et du secteur manufacturier, cadres, journalistes, enseignants et mêmes développeurs, tous risquent d'être remplacés par des machines et des logiciels intelligents. Et ce n'est que le début. La robotique, l'intelligence artificielle et toutes les formes d'automatisation du travail commencent à détruire des millions d'emplois, ce qui entraînera un chômage de masse, une augmentation sans précédent des inégalités et une implosion de l'économie de consommation. Les solutions du passé pour faire face à ces disruptions technologiques - en particulier dans l'éducation avec la pléthore de diplômes universitaires - ne fonctionnent désormais plus. Ni anti-technologie ni anti-progrès, Martin Ford va bien au-delà du discours de la peur et du déclin. Il propose des solutions pragmatiques pour adapter notre système économique et la société dans son ensemble aux nouvelles réalités apportées par l'avènement des machines et retrouver le chemin de la prospérité."
El ascenso de los robots : la tecnología y la amenaza de un futuro sin empleo by Martin Ford( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Cuáles serán los empleos del futuro? ¿Cuántos habrá? ¿Quién los tendrá? Podemos imaginar--y esperar--que la revolución industrial que vivimos hoy resulte como la anterior. Es decir que aún cuando algunos trabajos desaparezcan, se generen otros más para hacer frente a las innovaciones de una nueva era. Sin embargo esta vez el panorama no será igual. Empresario en Silicon Valley con una larga trayectoria, Martin Ford asegura en El ascenso de los robots que conforme la tecnología avance en su desarrollo vertiginoso y las máquinas comiencen a hacerse cargo de ellas mismas, cada vez menos personas serán necesarias para realizar cada vez más tareas. Asistentes jurídicos, periodistas, oficinistas, programadores de computadoras están a punto de ser reemplazados por robots y software inteligente. Tanto los empleos más especializados como los intermedios se evaporarán, y las familias de clase media y trabajadora se verán en mayores dificultades. Podrá haber un desempleo masivo y una gran desigualdad. Pero esta vez, capacitar y educar no será la solución. ¿Verá el futuro una prosperidad amplia o niveles catastróficos de desigualdad e inseguridad económica? Una lectura indispensable para cualquiera que desee comprender lo que implica la tecnología acelerada para sus propios prospectos económicos, los de sus hijos, y de la sociedad como un todo"--Amazon.com

Il futuro senza lavoro : accelerazione tecnologica e macchine intelligenti : come prepararsi alla rivoluzione economica in arrivo by Martin Ford( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il timore che le nuove tecnologie possano distruggere il lavoro è vecchio quanto il capitalismo, ma, fin dai tempi dei luddisti, è sempre stato smentito dalla storia. Nelle rivoluzioni industriali degli ultimi tre secoli, per ogni posto di lavoro cancellato l'innovazione ne ha sempre creati di nuovi, e spesso più dignitosi. Questo libro - vincitore del Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award - dimostra che oggi non è più così. Nell'epoca dell'automazione diffusa, delle tecnologie dell'informazione e dell'intelligenza artificiale, i dati suggeriscono che sono stati creati meno posti di lavoro di quelli usurpati dalle macchine. Sono pronti a una diffusione massiccia software in grado di scrivere autonomamente una cronaca sportiva o di comporre squisite melodie; cuochi-robot che preparano pasti in modo igienico e con grande inventiva; congegni più precisi e accorti di qualunque medico nell'interpretare una cartella clinica; veicoli a guida autonoma; stampanti 3D capaci di erigere in poche ore un edificio abitabile. Macchine che spesso non si limitano a svolgere le funzioni predefinite dai costruttori, ma mostrano capacità di apprendere, curiosità e creatività. Siamo già ben oltre la robotizzazione dell'industria e dei lavori più monotoni: le macchine intelligenti stanno trasformando tutti i settori dell'economia, rivelandosi più efficienti e produttive degli esseri umani. E così, oltre al lavoro in fabbrica, sono a rischio anche gli impieghi più qualificati: se un tempo l'istruzione e l'impegno garantivano il successo, oggi non bastano più per accedere a una fonte di reddito adeguata
