    The premise of Rise of the Robots is simple technology is accelerating so rapidly that automation is on the verge of taking over not just straight forward physically oriented jobs but also brain power jobs as well in such fields as law, healthcare, journalism, engineering, and computer programming Similar sorts of warnings have been around since the time of the Luddites So it s easy to disregard these warnings as onedystopian prediction of the technological future e.g Where s the fl The premise of Rise of the Robots is simple technology is accelerating so rapidly that automation is on the verge of taking over not just straight forward physically oriented jobs but also brain power jobs as well in such fields as law, healthcare, journalism, engineering, and computer programming Similar sorts of warnings have been around since the time of the Luddites So it s easy to disregard these warnings as onedystopian prediction of the technological future e.g Where s the flying car we ve been promised for so many years The haunting worry is that history is not always an accurate predictor of the future Just because civilization survived the industrial revolution and the information technology revolution so far doesn t prove that the future will be pleasant.The author, Martin Ford, makes a convincing case that this time is different His proof Economic trends indicate that the jobless future is already occurring The inflation adjusted average salary of the American worke...
