Happiness is a modern concept. Modern as in 1794, when a French revolutionary first used the pursuit of happiness as a modern idea.

Today, hundreds of books are written and reviewed about human fulfillment and how to achieve happiness in life. And dozens of people offer advice on the subject.

The future looks good, but once we achieve the technological nirvana promised by AI, machine learning, science and robotics, will we be happier than we are today?
