Took the book just because the theme has thrown me into some curiosity about our future along the machines evolution. Have some curiosity related to our constitution protective clause (Brazilian Constitution, from 1988) that statues everyone has the right and the State the obligation to protect the work environment from an excessive automation of jobs and or workforce. Despite those two facts and motives the book took me by surprise: well written, lots of technical informations and contemporaries examples of machines learnings and it's evolution happening right now around the word (Watson, Eureqa, Octopus, WorkFusion, Quill and so forth). Highly Recommend. Five stars for sure.
A deep analysis involving every aspe ct of the issue. Beyond the impact of technology Ford delves into its profound social consequences and cross fertlization synergies. Definitely a must read book for whom are worried with the our future as species
