Stories from 2045
I was lucky to be asked to contribute a couple of chapters to this great little book recently, edited by Calum Chace.
The stories explore the ways that artificial intelligence and related technologies will affect the job market.
At the moment, no-one can predict exactly what will happen, but it seems very likely that people will need to retrain and change jobs more often.
Looking further ahead, we may need to work out how to make technological unemployment a very positive outcome, and with that in mind, this book has twice as many positive stories as negative ones.
All proceeds from the book will go to the Economic Singularity Foundation, a charity established to promote constructive analysis and discussion of the future of work.
I hope you will enjoy the stories, but most of all, hope you will join the debate.
