Could the Fourth Industrial Revolution help us reach the Global Goals?

From World Economic Forum – Agenda.

This year’s World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos focused on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a term coined by Klaus Schwab to describe the new generation of technological advances – sensors, robotics, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, precision medicine – coming together to define the next wave of progress.

• One consistent, fearful theme was the potential for job losses.

• A second concern at Davos was growing inequality in the world between “digital haves” and “have-nots”.

• A third common concern (particularly driven by robotics and artificial intelligence) was the “dehumanization” of our lives.
