Overview

This book answers the important questions surrounding the eventual replacement of human work by machines and technology.

Book Intro

Will my job survive the next ten years? Will a college degree be no longer necessary? Will I turn the steering wheel over to a self-driving car? What will I do if a robot becomes smarter than I am? AlphaGo's historic victory over Lee Sedol has left humanity with profound questions. What do we need to know in the age when human-created tools re-shuffle labor and knowledge and threaten humanity's place in the world?

Robotic Age, Humanity’s Work is essential reading for the AI era presented by a digital humanities scholar. Rather than proposing an enormous question about civilization, Koo Bonkwon, the author, asks specifically what type of reality humanity will face tomorrow. Koo offers a vivid map of the future, framed by ten small questions regarding self-driving cars, machine translation, education and occupation, labor and emotions, and others, for a macro perspective and practical guidance beyond the conventional fragmented approach to new technical information and emerging issues. This book will serve as an indicator to navigate the robotic age that is upon us.
