This book is about what happens when globalisation meets AI/Robotics? Technological progress at an inhuman pace means the next wave of globalisation based around services will be faster than ever. Expect economic insecurity, social upheaval and political problems as a response. Ultimately relying on the most human of skills is the only way to protect jobs.
