Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

I found this book recommended in the Stanford Engineering reading list, and I thought it would be apt for me to learn more about how AI could impact future jobs, and how to adapt to the change. I liked that the book was direct and descriptive on higher education and skill-building were essential to combat this change. The author juxtaposes this AI-led change to the agricultural and industrial revolutions in the past centuries, and how every transition had required a new set of occupations to emerge, and asked for citizens to re-equip skills and education.
