Are you prepared for the imminent technological revolution? From Amazon’s Alexa to Japan’s robot chefs, technology is becoming increasing saturated into our everyday lives. Previous technological revolutions have come and gone but this one is different. For the first time in economic history productivity and employment are diverging, suggesting that humans are contributing less to economic growth. Businesses are now turning to robotics and artificial intelligence to pick up the slack where humans are failing. As they become faster, smarter and cheaper, humans will continually struggle to compete. For many, this will lead to redundancy and hardship. But with great change comes great opportunity. Where many will fall victim to the rise of the robots, others will flourish in an era of rapid innovation. Whole swaths of industries will be created as technology opens the doors to boundless opportunities. Whether you sink or swim depends on how able you are to adopt to this new technology. There is only one thing that separates a successful you from a redundant you. KNOWLEDGE! This book overviews some of the most disruptive upcoming technologies and provides the foundation of knowledge for you to be able to leverage new tech to your advantage. Technologies covered: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it will rapidly saturate business, the workplace and the home. How it is technically possible for AI to become more intelligent than humans and the consequences this technological singularity would reap on humanity. The future of the internet, Big Data, cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and how they will transform the nature of business. Autonomous vehicles and how you will soon be ditching your vehicle in favour of hailing a driverless vehicle through a simple phone app. We will ever be able to ditch our over reliance on filthy fossil fuels? Who will emerge victorious in the fight between renewables and nuclear? The possibilities of genetic and bionic modifications and how we may soon be able to order genes like food on a menu. What are the consequences of man playing God and taking us beyond our natural limits? The future of the welfare state and how schemes such as Universal Basic Income and Negative Income Tax may be the only way to keep money flowing in an era of mass automation. And finally where you fit into all this. We look at the future of employment and the workplace to see who will be the real winners and losers in the next tech revolution.
