“What the heck? A future that depends on us “Tim O’Reilly
Tim O’Reilly is one of the world’s foremost proponents of innovation, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, an educational organization that publishes books and courses on innovation and technology. In his book What the Hell? A future that depends on us ”(original title“ WTF ?: What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us ”) Tim explores the pros and potential risks of disruptive technologies. What future awaits us when most of the professions are replaced by machines? Are income inequality and unemployment an inevitable consequence of technological progress? What is the future of traditional education systems? How can “education on demand” help people adapt and relearn better to meet the new needs of the labor market? The core of the book is a call to action that is very close to us in spirit:
“Businesses and companies need to do MORE with technology. This should not turn into an attempt to enrich the top of shareholders and cut costs and jobs where it is needed and not needed. ” And the main message of the book is that we ourselves are building our own future. And if we are told that robots will replace our jobs, then who else, if not us, can decide whether this will be the case or not? Tim O’Reilly writes that we should be active participants in our future, and not passively watch how tech tycoons build the world as they please. And in this regard, Tim’s book is different from all the others: it is not only about technology, but also about the need to think critically and be proactive.
