內容簡介


2015年金融時報與麥肯錫年度商業選書,機器人崛起的時代來臨了!
紐約時報科學類暢銷排行榜

科技的日益發展,機器人的出現將製造更多工作機會、還是消滅工作機會?矽谷創業家Martin Ford指出很可能是後者,隨著人工智慧的軟體有能力處理更複雜的事物,許多過往需要腦力運作的「好工作」:如司法人員、記者、辦公室白領、以及電腦工程師都將被取代。隨著機器人的擴張,除了藍領、白領、接著還有中產階級家庭,都將慢慢消失。而家庭將無法負擔接下來高漲的醫療以及教育費用。高失業率、財富分配不均,都將嚴重影響社會以及經濟結構。

作者在書中,將細說機器人與人工智慧的未來,並呼籲雇主、政策制定者正是未來面臨的問題。過往面對破壞性科技的方式是更多的訓練與教育,但現在同樣的方式可能再也行不通。究竟未來將會是更加繁榮或是全面性的大崩壞,將會是你我都需要面對的問題。

What are the jobs of the future? How many will there be? And who will have them? We might imagine—and hope—that today’s industrial revolution will unfold like the last: even as some jobs are eliminated, more will be created to deal with the new innovations of a new era. InRise of the Robots, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford argues that this is absolutely not the case. As technology continues to accelerate and machines begin taking care of themselves, fewer people will be necessary. Artificial intelligence is already well on its way to making “good jobs” obsolete: many paralegals, journalists, office workers, and even computer programmers are poised to be replaced by robots and smart software. As progress continues, blue and white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing working- and middle-class families ever further. At the same time, households are under assault from exploding costs, especially from the two major industries—education and health care—that, so far, have not been transformed by information technology. The result could well be massive unemployment and inequality as well as the implosion of the consumer economy itself.

In Rise of the Robots, Ford details what machine intelligence and robotics can accomplish, and implores employers, scholars, and policy makers alike to face the implications. The past solutions to technological disruption, especially more training and education, aren’t going to work, and we must decide, now, whether the future will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic levels of inequality and economic insecurity. Rise of the Robots is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand what accelerating technology means for their own economic prospects—not to mention those of their children—as well as for society as a whole.
