“One of the underlying threads running through the recent GAC Summit (World Economic Forum) was the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This paradigm shift of connected industry and Artificial Intelligence is advancing exponentially faster than previous revolutions, with deep consequences for economy, society and politics.”
Culled from the WEF’s weekly bulletin <GAC@e.weforum.org> .
This happened last week and as I listened to various presentations and joined different discussions, I kept wondering when as a nation, we will begin to grapple with these issues; consumed as we are with basic matters of governance and economic management. The good news is that with vision, respect and use of knowledge, we can leapfrog and benefit from the experiences of those currently in the vanguard of the revolution.
