I have been reading extensively on the topic of automation all year. Out of all the books I have read, Andrés Oppenheimer's work is the most comprehensive. He is an excellent journalist who deserves all the praise he gets.

This book is masterfully researched and presented. Mr. Oppenheimer educates while he entertains, and he is always fair. He interviews everybody important around the move automate jobs. He lets the optimists have their say and the cynics. He asks the critical questions to the r

Browsing in one of my favorite book stores in South Florida "Books and Books" I came across an autographed trade paperback and picked it up. If you are like me, the title raises images of robots welding cars on an assembly line or lining up to do battle a la Star Wars. It turns out that far more than our vision of "robots", it is artificial intelligence that will have the most robotic influence. The book is interesting for a look at the various types of machines, how they will operate and whose ...more

I absolutely loved this book.
While most of the people are under the constant threat that their jobs will be replaced by robots, AI and software.
The author says that those jobs which are repetitive in nature will be replaced soon. In fact, most of them are already replaced. For instance, the Rail Gatekeepers used to manually close/open the gates. Now, machines do that. But has the job disappeared? No. Machines will still need humans to operate them.
I have made a list of jobs which will are comple

It’s no secret that jobs are disappearing. As technology advances, various skills and services are falling to the wayside. However, would this jobless state of being become a Utopian bliss or a Dystopian nightmare? Andres Oppenheimer writes a book to address these issues and many more. I don’t think he is related to J Robert Oppenheimer, but that isn’t really important. What is important is the points that this book raises.

So Artificial Intelligence is coming to its own teenage years. I actually
Like many similar books in this category, we could replace the entire title on how the tech industry is automating many of the jobs in the foreseable and future future. I've ran through 3 books this year on this topic and structurally as well epistemologically, it's all very similar. As with such structurally similar books, it goes as follows. Introduction, hey technology is going to take over your jobs, and here are some why it's a good thing or a bad thing. Then we go through each fields of th ...more
POPSUGAR 2020: a book with a robot, cyborg, or AI character.

An examination of the past, present, and future of automation in the work force. I found it quite illuminating in the current political climate. The job market is shifting; in short, robots are taking over jobs that require the least amount of creative thought and analysis, freeing up more intuitive labor for people. If robots take over our more menial tasks, it give us the freedom to do the more complicated, non-data driven work. They

If the tone and the writing would not be so schematic and repetitive, I would give it 5 stars. The content is greatly researched and the impact of automation is at times surprising. I did not expect that automation makes labor costs so irrelevant, that adidas moved its manufacturing back from China to Germany. That is just one of the so many eye popping and interesting pieces of information presented in the book.

As my son is heading to college, I found some affirmation in the decisions he made a

From exploring the concept of technological unemployment to apprising the reader of the dire urgency of shifting to non-conventional yet relevant skill sets, this book unearths the futuristic prospect of staying in the game despite the unnerving backdrop of threat from machine, robotic and AI domination in the coming decades. A must read for those who assume that their current workplaces are secure from being driven to the brink of obsolescence and an eye opener for those who believe there's eno ...more

First I would like to state that I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity and honor in being able to read this book. When I received this book I began reading it at once. This book was interesting. It is very different then what I would normally read. The book is very well written. It has excellent investigative work. I recommend

Andres Oppenheimer will always take the lead when it comes to economic and social analysis of Latin America. With this book, he predicts per field which changes are foreseen with this era of artificial intelligence. If the main factor of development is change, why not be prepared and evolve our careers on the leading fields. Finished the book considering myself as a tech optimist. The future is bright.

Side note, the title implies a negative move. Depends of how you handle change 😉

Very interesting book, I found the chapters on medical care and education especially interesting. Since reading it, I’ve become aware of how much automation and the human presence in service industries are dwindling away. This was especially helpful to read as a parent in the sense that I’m getting a glimpse into what life, tech, job opportunities etc will look like for my child. Also helpful to learn about the things that I will need to hone in on teaching that tech won’t be able to.

The future of automation in the coming years. Robots and computer programs will eliminate many jobs and transform others in industries like transportation, banking, law, and even medicine and journalism. But it will also expand free time of people and this will increase demand for other services.

If you want to know or explore about the future of job you should read this book, Andres explains and refers to actual situations in different points of the world about the technology and how this will replace the humans in different activities.

Andres Oppenheimer knocks this one out of the park. This is an insightful work full of good website recommendations that is a pleasure to read. Five stars without hesitation.

Nice overview of the different jobs that will get automated. However some of the other professions he recommends I also believe could get automated very soon.

Interesting speculation on the future (present?) of robotics. Not ground-breaking in its assumptions, but a fast and easy read for people who are not into the subject.

Interesting look in to the possibility of automation in the future. Also shows the successes and failures of robots so far. The concept that people would be professional companions to the elderly like uber is interesting.
