Book synopsis: “The robots are taking our jobs!” \ud Not long ago, this worry was the stuff of science fiction. Now, as \ud self–driving cars take to the streets and robots fill our warehouses \ud and factories, it is entering mainstream political debate around the \ud world.\ud This raises important questions for all of us. How society uses \ud new technologies is not a foregone conclusion. It depends on \ud political decisions, cultural norms and economic choices as much \ud as on the technologies themselves.\ud This book looks at the phenomenon of new robot technologies, \ud asks what impact they might have on the economy, and considers \ud how governments, businesses and individuals should respond \ud to them. Because technological change is a complex business, it \ud includes views from a range of disciplines, including economics, \ud engineering, history, philosophy and innovation studies.
