If you’re interested in learning more about technology, whether it be in the past, our current day, or in the future, one of the best ways to do so is to read a good book on the subject. There are countless great books out there that discuss the many facets of technology, plenty that you probably haven’t even thought of. Here are a few of the best books to read on technology this year.
The Cloud Revolution – Mark P. Mills
According to author Mark P. Mills, the next ten years will see a technological convergence that will lead to an economic boom that will be referred to as the Roaring 2020s. Instead of a single major innovation, the technological advancements that will be made will be in multiple areas, such as computers, materials, and machines. The building blocks of all of these new innovations are being developed with supernatural qualities. The increasing number of machines and their ability to transport a wide variety of goods are contributing to the technological revolution. The Cloud, which was founded on the principles of artificial intelligence and next-generation processors, is allowing this to happen.
The New Breed: On Robots and Animals – Kate Darling
Kate Darling is an authority on robot ethics, and in her book, she argues that we should stop assuming that the technological advancements that will be made over the next decade will resemble us. Instead, we should focus on the interactions that robots will have with animals. According to Darling, robots will not replace humans in any way, and they will complement each other just as humans have done with animals in the past. The book explores how machines can provide us with new knowledge about our history and systems, as well as how we interact with non-humans. It also explores the moral challenges that will face us as we continue to develop new technology.

One AI program was able to discover a new antibiotic by analyzing the molecular characteristics of an organism that scientists did not understand. This technology is being used in various industries, such as education, broadcasting, and browsing. As a result, people are starting to perceive the world through a different lens.
