The Autonomous Revolution: Reclaiming the Future We've Sold to Machines (16pt Large Print Edition)

The Autonomous Revolution: Reclaiming the Future We've Sold to Machines (16pt Large Print Edition) cover

We are at the dawn of the Autonomous Revolution, a technological revolution as decisive as the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. Autonomous machines are capable of learning and adapting faster than humans and entirely on their own. And for the first time in human history we no longer require physical locations to work, play, shop, socialize, or be entertained. William Davidow and Michael Malone, authors of the seminal book The Virtual Corporation, explore the enormous implications of these developments. They show why increases in productivity no longer translate into increases in the GDP, how invisible algorithms control what you see and hear, and much more. Many of the book's recommendations-such as monetizing internet usage and making companies pay for personal information-are likely to be controversial, but this debate needs to begin now, before the Autonomous Revolution overcomes us.
