The Fourth Age: Smart Robots, Conscious Computers, and the Future of Humanity

By Byron Reese
Styled as a “guidebook to the future,” the latest from famed futurist Byron Reese surveys the last 100,000 years to identify key points when technology altered the course of human civilization. Reese’s exploration is especially notable in that he argues recent advances in artificial intelligence and robotics represent another key inflection point. A must-read for anyone interested in the intersection of technology, society and work, The Fourth Age examines the crucial questions we need to consider as new developments gain momentum and take hold.


"In The Fourth Age, Byron Reese offers the reader something much more valuable than what to think about Artificial Intelligence and robotics--he focuses on HOW to think about these technologies, and the ways in which they will change the world forever. If you only read just one book about the AI revolution, make it this one."
