Product Description
Is your job in danger of getting replaced by robots?

Jobocalypse is a look at the rapidly changing face of robotics and how it will revolutionize employment and jobs over the next thirty years. Ben Way lays out the arguments in favor of and against the mechanization of our society, as well as the amazing advantages and untold risks, as we march into this ever-present future.

Each entertaining chapter covers the past, present and future of robotic technology, from sex bots to military killing drones, in an easy to understand way.

"A fascinating look into the future of robotics and their impact on humanity, be prepared to question when robots will replace you" - Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading

"The future of work is changing thanks to a variety of things like 3D printing, open source software, and robots. Ben Way has a front-row seat on these huge changes and what they mean for both rich and poor workers. Yes, the robots may take our jobs, but who will build the robots?
