Alan Derman, a retired public transit worker, contract negotiator, freelance writer and poet, has completed his newest work “The Robot in the Tea Parlor: Poems of Life in the Digital Age”: a gripping and potent work about humanity versus artificial intelligence.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Alan Derman’s unique work depicts the impacts of increasing technology and digital knowledge.

This brief collection of poems present different but connected glimpses and deep feelings on the multiple impacts of technology, and digital innovations on human life and the planet. It presents a view of robotics as lives are impacted by drones, mass surveillance programs, and Machiavellian modern tools of persuasion and a growing willingness to sacrifice privacy and traditional freedoms for a promise of national security and expansion of our volatile economy. “The Robot in the Tea Parlor” is an effort to search the soul and conscience for ways to understand and cope with the myriad of problems impacting humans. Most of the poems represent a distillation of dreams remembered, reflections on personal experiences, and views of media events related to technology, such as drones (UAVs) and artificial intelligence devices. Will humanity evolve to overcome wars and blanket surveillance, or will it succumb to a high-tech Orwellian dictatorship/Brave New World? This is the underlying question for which people seek answers.

Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase “The Robot in the Tea Parlor: Poems of Life in the Digital Age” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
