Hey Book{worms},

The Member Connection Committee would like to host you for our “Quarterly Book{ish} Review”, a virtual event that inspires connection and fosters an open environment for discussion. Cozy up with us on Monday, September 27th, grab your favorite drink, and get ready to share your thoughts on our inspiring quarterly read, Futureproof: 9 Rules for Humans in the Age of Automation

Book Synopsis

The machines are here. After decades of sci-fi doomsaying and marketing hype, advanced A.I. and automation technologies have leapt out of research labs and Silicon Valley engineering departments and into the center of our lives. The world’s biggest corporations are racing to automate jobs, and some experts predict that A.I. could put millions of people out of work. But all is not lost. With a little effort, we can become futureproof. 

In Futureproof: 9 Rules for Machine-Age Humans, New York Times technology columnist Kevin Roose lays out an optimistic vision of how people can thrive in the machine age by rethinking their relationship with technology, and making themselves irreplaceably human.

In this timely, counterintuitive, and highly practical guide to the age of A.I. and automation, a New York Times technology columnist argues that the key to success is making yourself more human, not less.
