It is my considered opinion that people living and working in my part of the world (Africa), in particular, BADLY NEED to align themselves with (and pro-actively ADAPT to) fast paced technology driven changes sweeping across the globe, if they are to avoid getting permanently left behind by the rest of the world. I believe this book offers potentially useful insights that can be built on in that regard – hence my recommendation of it here.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, by Klaus Schwab
Ubiquitous, mobile supercomputing. Intelligent robots. Self-driving cars. Neuro-technological brain enhancements. Genetic editing. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed.
Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has been at the centre of global affairs for over four decades. He is convinced that we are at the beginning of a revolution that is fundamentally changing the way we live, work and relate to one another, which he explores in his new book, The Fourth Industrial Revolution.
