Publisher's Summary

The rise of artificial technology has seen a total change in the way we live our lives, interact, and function in the world. It has infiltrated our reality at every given turn and there appears to be no turning back now. 

Data science, advanced algorithms, and pattern recognition are now becoming so advanced, but what are the consequences for this progress and has anybody stopped to think about the potential consequences to our innate humanness and spirit?

There can be no doubt that artificial intelligence and technology has provided us with a lot more ease and convenience in many areas of life, but where does that leave the human workforce as more and more industries start to become automated? With machines learning from each other now and becoming intelligent in their own right, it seems a good idea to take stock.

We have entered into a love affair with technology, dazzled by what it can do. But have we become blinded in our lust for yet more highly advanced robots? At times it can feel like we're living in a science fiction movie, with many Hollywood hits about AI seemingly getting closer to the mark by the day! 

We are so much more connected in many ways with technology, but where does this leave our spiritual and soul connections on a heart-to-heart basis? What about our connection to nature and what is truly real? How will the future be for our children and grandchildren in this technology based world? Important questions to ask as the rise of the robots is clearly upon us.
