Publisher's Summary

The essential playbook for the future of your business.
What to Do When Machines Do Everything is a guidebook to succeeding in the next generation of the digital economy. When systems running on artificial intelligence can drive our cars, diagnose medical patients, and manage our finances more effectively than humans, it raises profound questions on the future of work and how companies compete. Illustrated with real-world cases, data, and insight, the authors provide clear strategic guidance and actionable steps to help you and your organization move ahead in a world where exponentially developing new technologies are changing how value is created.
Written by a team of business and technology expert practitioners - who also authored Code Halos: How the Digital Lives of People, Things, and Organizations are Changing the Rules of Business - this book provides a clear path to the future of your work.
The first part of the book examines the once in a generation upheaval most every organization will soon face as systems of intelligence go mainstream. The authors argue that contrary to the doom and gloom that surrounds much of IT and business at the moment, we are in fact on the cusp of the biggest wave of opportunity creation since the Industrial Revolution. Next, the authors detail a clear-cut business model to help leaders take part in this coming boom. The AHEAD model outlines five strategic initiatives - Automate, Halos, Enhance, Abundance, and Discovery - that are central to competing in the next phase of global business by driving new levels of efficiency, customer intimacy and innovation.
Business leaders today have two options: be swallowed up by the ongoing technological evolution, or ride the crest of the wave to new profits and better business. This book shows you how to avoid your own extinction event, and will help you:


Understand the untold full extent of technology's impact on the way we work and live
Find out where we're headed, and how soon the future will arrive
Leverage the new emerging paradigm into a sustainable business advantage
Adopt a strategic model for winning in the new economy

The digital world is already transforming how we work, live, and shop, how we are governed and entertained, and how we manage our money, health, security, and relationships. Don't let your business - or your career - get left behind. What to Do When Machines Do Everything is your strategic roadmap to a future full of possibility and success. Or peril.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Mocking Dystopia

Ok, maybe not completely mocking the dystopian view of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, but the authors do a solid job of presenting an alternative view of the doom mongering that often surrounds AI and our future. Sure, there are reasons to be concerned, but drawing on examples from industrialisation and automation that has been occurring across sectors for decades, the authors do a credible job of outlining how AI can lead to more jobs and better, more interesting work. We can choose whether we believe the predictions and there are credible arguments on both sides of the debate, but this book presents a strong argument for optimism.
