Robots Will Steal Your Job, but that’s OK

February 16th, 2012

A very intriguing soon-to-be-released book by Federico Pistono.

You are about to become obsolete. You think you are special, unique, and that whatever it is that you are doing is impossible to replace. You are wrong. As we speak, millions of algorithms created by computer scientists are frantically running on servers all over the world, with one sole purpose: do whatever you used to do, but better.

That is the argument for a phenomenon called technological unemployment, one that is pervading modern society. But is that really the case? Or is it just a futuristic fantasy? What will become of us in the coming years, and what can we do to prevent a catastrophic collapse of society?

Robots will steal your job, but that’s OK: how to survive the economic collapse and be happy¬†will explore the impact that technological advances will have on our lives, what it means to be happy, and provide suggestions on how to avoid a systemic collapse.
