New York Times technology columnist and host of the podcast Rabbit Hole, Kevin Roose is the author of Futureproof: 9 Rules for Humans in the Age of Automation, in which he lays out a vision for how humanity can live well in the age of machines.

Roose says we don't need to become more like machines - hyper-efficient, data-driven workhorses - to survive. Instead, he says, we should focus on being more human and doing the kinds of creative, inspiring and meaningful things even the most advanced AI can't do.
