About the Author

Martin Ford is a futurist and the author of three books: Rise of the Robots, winner of the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2015, Architects of Intelligence, and The Lights in the Tunnel. He is also the founder of a Silicon Valley-based software development firm.


Probably the most compelling single-volume book so far on AI's advance and the opportunities and challenges associated with its multi-faceted impact on the world. Those in AI and those outside it will get a lot out of his clear-eyed and critical perspective. I highly recommend it
*James Manyika, Chairman and Director of the McKinsey Global Institute*

There is no technology more important today than AI. Martin Ford continues his tradition of clear insights and observations about this important topic in a well-researched page-turner. A delightful book!
*Erik Brynjolfsson, Director of the Stanford Digital Economy Lab and co-author of The Second Machine Age*

The best up-to-date, go-to book on the social and economic implications of artificial intelligence
*Tyler Cowen, Professor of Economics at George Mason University*

An incisive, balanced, and well-informed discussion of where AI stands today, how it may evolve, and the risks it poses to human society
*Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley and co-author of Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach*

Writing about the future of robotics is a dangerous endeavor, since it illuminates every aspect of our lives with a startling, uncharted perspective. Ford navigates this challenge admirably, with an exceptional blend of depth, rigor and clarity
*Judea Pearl, winner of the A.M. Turing Award and co-author of The Book of Why*

Rule of the Robots is subtle and clever, a book that will challenge readers to reassess their position on AI
*Engineering And Technology*

According to software developer Martin Ford, artificial intelligence (AI) will probably transform society faster than electricity did, but with unpredictable effects. His well-informed study notes a 2016 forecast that within five years, radiologists would be overtaken by advances in AI. But that hasn't happened: AI cannot currently integrate key information from sources such as clinical notes. AI's future, Ford concludes, lies somewhere between the science-fictional extremes of utopian Star Trek and dystopian The Matrix

A good read and . . . a balanced perspective on both the benefits and costs of increasingly widespread use of AI
*Diane Coyle, Enlightenment Economics*
