By Marshall Brain

Robots will quickly commence taking human jobs in areas like retail shops, quick nutrients eating places, development websites and transportation. the most important know-how that may gas the transition is reasonably cheap laptop imaginative and prescient platforms, and the variety of human jobs in danger numbers within the thousands and thousands. greater than half the roles within the usa will be eliminated.

With 1/2 the roles eradicated via robots, what occurs to all of the those who find themselves out of labor? Marshall Brain's booklet Manna explores the probabilities and indicates contrasting results, one jam-packed with nice desire and the opposite rather uncomfortable.

Join Marshall mind, founding father of HowStuffWorks.com, for a skillful step by step stroll throughout the robot transition, the cave in of the human activity industry that effects and an remarkable examine humanity's destiny in a post-robotic world.

Then contemplate our techniques. Which imaginative and prescient of the long run will society decide to follow?
