The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies

Posted by nexvucapital on January 4, 2014

The new book by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, authors of Race Against the Machine

A revolution is under way.

In The Second Machine Age MIT’s Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee—two thinkers at the forefront of their field— make the case that we should be optimistic about the future because technological progress, ‘the only free lunch that economists believe in,’ is accelerating quickly past our intuitions and expectations. But we should also be mindful of our values and our choices: as technology races ahead, it may leave a lot of people, organizations and institutions behind.

This is the book that explains the new age we’re quickly heading into and shows why we should be optimistic about it, yet also discusses the challenges it will bring.
