The Fourth Industrial Revolution

Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum

World Economic Forum Founder Klaus Schwab on the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has already begun. As new technologies disrupt our political, economic, and personal lives, the notion that we can revert to the booming manufacturing towns of yesteryear is wishful thinking. A successful global future will require states, individuals, and organizations to innovate and cooperate in entirely new ways. How will governance systems be put in place to contend with the dramatic changes of the Fourth Industrial Revolution? And as the geopolitical climate evolves, what is the best way for state and non-state actors to collaboratively set new foundations for global security and prosperity?
