Many people have a specific idea of robots that comes out of science fiction movies, television shows, and books. In fiction, robots are made to resemble humans and are often shown as being heroic or villainous. Real robots rarely look anything like people. In reality, they are high-performing machines doing difficult jobs in places like factories, mines, and outer space. Technological advances have made surgical robots and self-driving cars a reality. This compelling resource explores many types of robots, how they are used, and their impact on jobs in industries ranging from manufacturing to law enforcement.

Most of us know that the widespread use of robotics, particularly artificial intelligence robots, will most likely have an adverse effect on the workplace and that the new jobs that emerge will require new thinking skills that the current educational system does not provide. It is also becoming clear that communities seeking to attract and nurture those most qualified for the new jobs must also renew themselves if they are to be successful. Most important, the emerging workforce must be able to engage both right and left hemispheres of the brain in order to solve complex problems, in increasingly creative ways. This central imperative, has resulted in the increasing demand for both artistic and creative skills along with technological and science-based skills. This treatise makes those arguments for reinvention and while it is not yet known precisely what makes people creative, many ideas about fostering creative people and institutions are discussed. The Covid-19 pandemic has greatly accelerated our use of technology and our responses to changes we must make in education, the workplace and the workforce that have been lying dormant for too long. At the heart of the changes we must make is the vital realization that art and technology are the new benchmarks of the global economy, an economy where creativity and innovation are shaping a new world order. We are entering a new era and we must act now to prepare for a very different future.
