Product description


"Glimmers with originality and verve... Others have raised these issues but Mr. Kaplan is unique in devising solutions."-Economist The Economist "New technologies are poised to vastly increase wealth, but for whom? In Humans Need Not Apply, Jerry Kaplan makes a persuasive case that future growth may be driven more by assets than labor, and offers unique policy proposals to promote a more equitable future."-Lawrence H. Summers, former US Secretary of the Treasury and President Emeritus of Harvard University -- Lawrence H. Summers "A crucial book for understanding the great challenge of our times, which is how people can learn to live wisely with ever-greater technical ability."-Jaron Lanier, author of You Are Not A Gadget and Who Owns the Future? -- Jaron Lanier "Artificial intelligence will transform how we live and work. But how we use AI is up to us. We are lucky to have as gifted and experienced a thinker as Jerry Kaplan to guide us as we navigate through this new age."-John Doerr, Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers -- John Doerr "Soon, Jerry Kaplan suggests from his perch at Stanford's AI Lab, 'synthetic intellects' and 'forged laborers' are going to start changing the world in unpredictable ways. How can we make sure the benefits they deliver are broadly distributed? In this candid and informed take on the coming AI revolution-and how we might mitigate its problematic aspects-Jerry will have you thinking long into the night about a future that's just around the corner."-Reid Hoffman, co-founder/chairman of LinkedIn and co-author of the #1 NYT bestseller The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age -- Reid Hoffman "In a world where the popular perception of Artificial Intelligence is often driven by Hollywood fiction, it's refreshing to read such a realistic and insightful analysis to help inform public discourse about this important technology."-Ron Moore, producer and screenwriter for Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica -- Ron Moore "AI is creating enormous wealth, but there's no economic law that everyone will share in this bounty. As Jerry Kaplan masterfully explains, the great challenge is to harness these new technologies to deliver shared prosperity."-Erik Brynjolfsson, co-author of The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies -- Erik Brynjolfsson "A compelling, prophetic, and timely book from a leading technology thinker, Humans Need Not Apply is a must-read for entrepreneurs, scientists, policymakers, and anyone concerned about the promise and peril of artificially intelligent machines."-Fei-Fei Li, Director, Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab -- Fei-Fei Li "A reminder that AI systems don't need red laser eyes to be dangerous."-John Gilbey, Times Higher Education Supplement -- John Gibley THES 'Kaplan also sidesteps the usual arguments of techno-optimism and dystopia, preferring to go for pragmatic solutions to a shrinking pool of jobs.'-Emma Jacobs, Financial Times. -- Emma Jacobs Financial Times "Well worth reading, especially by anybody who wants to go painlessly from a standing start to a pretty thorough grounding in a debate that's only going to intensify in the years ahead."-James Walton, The Guardian -- James Walton The Guardian "An intriguing, insightful and well-written look at how modern artificial intelligence, powering algorithms and robots, threatens jobs and may increase wealth inequalities, by a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and AI expert."-The Economist, "Books of the Year" The Economist "Kaplan gives a fascinating insight into this world we are moving into... reveals, in an informative and engaging way, the issues we need to be aware of in this fascinating area of technological advancement."-Jonathan Stevens, Legal Practice Management -- Jonathan Stevens Legal Practice Management
