The rise of the machines
AI, Automation & Universal Basic Income
With AI capability accelerating at speeds difficult for many of us to fully comprehend, what impact will this unchecked progress have on tomorrow’s job market? Will the rise of the machines lead to an unprecedented social instability? Providing ‘notes on the way forward’, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford explores the implications of this technological progress and argues that if Capitalism is to survive, a Universal Basic Income must be distributed to citizens worldwide.
Martin Ford is a futurist focusing on the impact of artificial intelligence and robotics on society and the economy, and the author of two best-selling books including ‘Rise of the Robots’.
