Advance Praise for Rule of the Robots
“Probably the most compelling single-volume book so far on AI’s advance and the opportunities and challenges associated with its multi-faceted impact on the world. Those in AI and those outside it will get a lot out of his clear-eyed and critical perspective. I highly recommend it.” ―James Manyika, Chairman and Director of the McKinsey Global Institute
“There is no technology more important today than AI. Martin Ford continues his tradition of clear insights and observations about this important topic in a well-researched page-turner. A delightful book!” ―Erik Brynjolfsson, Director of the Stanford Digital Economy Lab and co-author of The Second Machine Age
“The best up-to-date, go-to book on the social and economic implications of artificial intelligence.” ―Tyler Cowen, Professor of Economics at George Mason University
“An incisive, balanced, and well-informed discussion of where AI stands today, how it may evolve, and the risks it poses to human society.”―Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley and co-author of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach
“Writing about the future of robotics is a dangerous endeavor, since it illuminates every aspect of our lives with a startling, unchartered perspective. Ford navigates this challenge admirably, with an exceptional blend of depth, rigor and clarity.” ―Judea Pearl, winner of the A.M. Turing Award and co-author of The Book of Why
