HUMANS NEED NOT APPLY A Guide to Wealth and Work in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

by | Read by John Pruden

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This audiobook on how the development of artificial intelligence threatens jobs, thereby exacerbating income inequality, is flawlessly narrated by John Pruden. Kaplan's ideas on what artificial intelligence, particularly as manifested in robots, will be capable of doing for humans are astonishing. Machines that analyze information will outwit humans at such activities as making complex diagnoses, writing legal briefs, and analyzing big data. Pruden's lively reading blends well with the discussions on the moral obligations of developing and using artificial intelligence, topics that are often overlooked amid the excitement of the engineering. Pruden dispassionately portrays Kaplan's vision of reduced work and increased leisure time. His clear diction and good pacing invite listener engagement with the ways artificial intelligence will transform the way we live.
