Resumen del libro

Staying true to his trademark journalistic approach, Andrés Oppenheimer takes his readers on yet another journey, this time across the globe, in a thought-provoking search to understand what the future holds for todays jobs in the foreseeable age of automation.

The Robots Are Coming! centers around the issue of jobs and their future in the context of rapid automation and the growth of online products and services. As two of Oppenheimers interviewees'both experts in technology and economics from Oxford University'indicate, forty-seven percent of existing jobs are at risk of becoming automated or rendered obsolete by other technological changes in the next twenty years. Oppenheimer examines current changes in several fields, including the food business, legal work, banking, and medicine, speaking with experts in the field, and citing articles and literature on automation in various areas of the workforce. He contrasts the perspectives of 'techno-optimists' with those of 'techno-negativists' and generally attempts to find a middle ground between an alarmist vision of the future, and one that is too uncritical. A self-described 'cautious optimist', Oppenheimer believes that technology will not create massive unemployment, but rather will drastically change what work looks like.
