Carl Benedikt Frey con Technology Trap: Capital, Labor, and Power in the Age of Automation

Críticas ""Carl Benedikt Frey has written an important and timely book . . . . A great deal of effort, thought, and scholarship went into its writing, and it shows. There is much food for thought here and I can envision this assigned in upper division economics classes as well as some graduate courses.""---Alexander Field, EH.net ""A fascinating history of technical change.""---Chris Dillow, Stumbling and Mumbling ""In his bracing new book The Technology Trap, Carl Frey extrapolates from the history of the industrial revolution to offer a vision of the future in which Amazon Go, AI assistants and autonomous vehicles are 'worker replacement' technologies.""---Greg Williams, Wired ""[Frey] takes a provocative, original long view on current concerns, examining the fallout from past technological advances . . . to mass production and artificial intelligence.""---Andrew Hill, Financial Times, Summer Books of 2019 ""As Frey points out in his latest book The Technology Trap, these are not disruptions that are unique to our current time. Whereas previous periods of disruption have failed to provide people with the support to help them adapt to technological disruption, we are beholden to try and break that cycle and do far more to help people adapt to the changes facing them.""---Adi Gaskell, Forbes ""One of the Financial Times' Summer Books of 2019: Business"" ""The Technology Trap may well ensnare doom-seekers' attention with its ominous-sounding title. But it should ultimately hearten anyone who reads it."" * The Economist * ""Anybody interested in the economic impact of digital and AI, in particular on jobs, will want to read [The Technology Trap].""---Diane Coyle, Enlightened Economist ""Frey's analysis is worth taking seriously because the Oxford economic historian and economist has researched his subject deeply and has co-authored one of the most widely cited studies on automation . . . . Frey's story is well argued and - at times - deeply alarming about the stability of western democracies given he predicts the further concentration of wealth in a few hands and in even fewer locations""---John Thornhill, Financial Times ""One of Frey's most salient points is that our attitudes and actions toward technology can play a pivotal role in how it impacts us. A lot of stock has been put into Frey and Osborne's prediction of 47 percent automation. But if Frey's book gets even half the attention the paper got, it should serve to quell some of our fears around a bleak machine-dominated future.""---Vanessa Bates Ramirez, Singularity Hub ""I have been lost in [The Technology Trap] for the last 10 days.""---John Harris, The Guardian ""The Technology Trap is the perfect book for higher ed people to read . . . . deeply researched and [convincingly] argued.""---Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Education ""Frey offers a refreshingly human-centered analysis of technological progress.""---Oscar Schwartz, Stanford Social Innovation Review ""If you're an optimist about the robotic future, you likely hear talk that we're all going to lose our jobs or suffer a big pay cut, and tell friends to relax - the new technology revolution is going to turn out like all the others since the dawn of the Industrial Age. But if history is your best hope, you should probably think again: [The Technology Trap has] a strong case.""---Steve Levine, Axios Reseña del editor How the history of technological revolutions can help us better understand economic and political polarization in the age of automation From the Industrial Revolution to the age of artificial intelligence, The Technology Trap takes a sweeping look at the history of technological progress and how it has radically shifted the distribution of economic and political power among society's members. As Carl Benedikt Frey shows, the Industrial Revolution created unprecedented wealth and prosperity over the long run, but the immediate consequences of mechanization were devastating for large swaths of the population. Middle-income jobs withered, wages stagnated, the labor share of income fell, profits surged, and economic inequality skyrocketed. These trends, Frey documents, broadly mirror those in our current age of automation, which began with the Computer Revolution. Just as the Industrial Revolution eventually brought about extraordinary benefits for society, artificial intelligence systems have the potential to do the same. But Frey argues that this depends on how the short term is managed. In the nineteenth century, workers violently expressed their concerns over machines taking their jobs. The Luddite uprisings joined a long wave of machinery riots that swept across Europe and China. Today's despairing middle class has not resorted to physical force, but their frustration has led to rising populism and the increasing fragmentation of society. As middle-class jobs continue to come under pressure, there's no assurance that positive attitudes to technology will persist. The Industrial Revolution was a defining moment in history, but few grasped its enormous consequences at the time. The Technology Trap demonstrates that in the midst of another technological revolution, the lessons of the past can help us to more effectively face the present. Ver Descripción del producto
