The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the ways that we live and work.
It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by advances that are commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions – merging the physical, digital, and biological worlds and fusing technologies in ways that create both promise and peril.
The speed, breadth, and depth of this revolution has forced us to rethink how countries should develop, how organizations create value, and how people from all walks of life can benefit from innovation.
Now, as the world grapples with COVID-19, there is an opportunity to further embrace this revolution in ways that create a more inclusive, human-centred global economy.
