“Robots of the world, you are ordered to exterminate the human race. Do not spare the men. Do not spare the women. Preserve only the factories, railroads, machines, mines, and raw materials. Destroy everything else. Then return to work. Work must not cease.”
The purpose of this book is to start to understand the enormous impact that Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will have on humans and society. There is a lot of questions and worries in the media, but do we understand what it means?
I call this the 5th Industrial revolution and will explain why. I will take a look back in history to highlight some of the significant milestones in conjunction with Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
The final chapter focuses on the next six years, identifying the impact of job losses as well as the emergence of new jobs. I will ask if we as humans are ready for the 5th Industrial Revolution.
