9781479380008: Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That's OK: how to survive the economic collapse and be happy

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 humans can 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 explores the impact of technological advances on our lives, what it means to be happy, and provides suggestions on how to avoid a systemic collapse.

Review:

Truly excellent. A very important work. I loved it.
- Peter Diamandis
Founder and Chairman X PRIZE Foundation, Chairman of Singularity University, New York Times best-selling author, Co-Founder of Zero-Gravity Corporation


Understanding the complex relationship between automation and jobs requires empirical analysis and a nuanced inquiry. Federico Pistono's book "Robots Will Steal Your Job, But That's OK" is a unique and fearless contribution to the ongoing conversation on this topic. Pistono approaches the issues with a perspective that reflects his love of both people and technology. The approach is relentlessly constructive, optimistic, and controversial. Read it, then agree or disagree with various points, but join the dialog!
-- Neil Jacobstein
Co-chair AI and Robotics, Singularity University


Thanks for sharing this splendid piece of work. I have never taken drugs, but if I did, I expect that the ride would be like what I experienced in reading your book.
-- Vivek Wadhwa
Author, Columnist for The Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, Washington Post, The New York Times, and Science Magazine

Pistono is trying to construct a future society in which humans will be happy even though they will be less necessary. Instead of an apocalyptic view of the future, Pistono is the rare prophet with a Panglossian view of the future [...] Pistono's book is the refreshing exception: no, we are not doomed. That, per se, is a good reason to read it. 
-- Piero Scaruffi, author and cultural historian, Stanford University

I really enjoyed it. Accurate stats and good advice. Great notes at the end, very helpful.
- Dan Barry
NASA astronaut, co-founder of 9th Sense Robotics
