With self-driving boats, robotic warehouses, decentralisation of energy and the void of employment upon us, this short documentary on the 4th industrial revolution perfectly explains the rapid change we're all witnessing.
Ubiquitous, mobile supercomputing. Artificially-intelligent robots. Self-driving cars. Neuro-technological brain enhancements. Genetic editing. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed.
Previous industrial revolutions liberated humankind from animal power, made mass production possible and brought digital capabilities to billions of people. This Fourth Industrial Revolution is, however, fundamentally different. It is characterised by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, impacting all disciplines, economies and industries, and even challenging ideas about what it means to be human. Based on the book 'The Fourth Industrial Revolution' by Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman and Founder of The World Economic Forum.
