The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
The World Economic Forum in Davos this year is looking at the threats and opportunities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In layman terms, the rise of the robots or artificial intelligence. But how has the world reached a point where the interplay between fields like nanotechnology, brain research, 3D printing, mobile networks and computing will create realities that were previously unthinkable. The video takes a brief look at these possibilities but also looks at how we got to the fourth revolution. Starting in the late 1700s with the first industrial revolution, it traces the steps up to today, running past second and third. It’s a fantastic video that sets the scene for what should be a memorable week in Davos. Coverage right here on Biznews. – Stuart Lowman
