Will Artificial Intelligence take away my job? Is there a bright future ahead with the way technology is going?
This week, we’re asking questions about the future of technology, and joining us to sort it all out is Kevin Kelly, a co-founder of Wired magazine. Last month, he published the paperback of his new book The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces that will Shape Our Future. Kevin Kelly points out that a lot of the patterns we’ve seen in the last decade of technology are also what’s shaping our future.
But then we get into what this means for us as humans. Are we doomed? While Stephen Hawking predicts that Artificial Intelligence can overtake the human race, Kevin Kelly is much more optimistic. As he sees it, we’ve got a bright future ahead with more opportunities than ever as Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and enhanced connectivity make our world just a little bit better than it was before.
Kelly’s new book just hit the shelves for paperback. If you would like to be 30 years ahead of your peers on your outlook of technology, give this book a read. You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble an of course in digital form, by visit Kevin Kelly’s website: http://kk.org/books/the-inevitable/
