Essential reading for anyone who wants to be relevant in the workforce of tomorrow.

Drawing on more than a decade of research on artificial intelligence and human systems,
David L. Shrier, a globally recognised futurist and innovation specialist, delivers fascinating insights and tips on how to win at work in the age of AI.

Artificial intelligence is driving workforce disruption on a scale not seen since the Industrial Revolution. Automation was once associated with mass layoffs in heavy industry like auto and steel, but computers are getting smarter and are beginning to replace traditionally 'white collar' roles like law, consulting, banking and finance.

Yet some curious findings are emerging from the world's leading research labs. The combined intellect of people and machines working in harmony is able to achieve outcomes that are better than either can accomplish alone. Properly tuned AI systems can even help harness the power of the collective intelligence of an entire organisation or community to predict future events. This isn't science fiction; this is science fact the author personally helped discover.

What are these new hybrid AI+people systems? What can specialised AI systems do to help you succeed in your career? How can you work most effectively with these machines?

Written by a practitioner who has worked with some of the largest companies in the world as well as some of the most innovative startups, Augmenting Your Career provides a rare window into a frontier area of computer science that will change everything about how you work and what your job will look like. Read this book and fast track your evolution to the knowledge worker of the future.
