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 known to be well versed in technological and economic trends and published The Fourth Industrial Revolution in 2016—the book looks deeply at how we might take collective responsibility to ensure what lies ahead in the future would be a positive one for all of us.
Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a continuation that builds on ideas to demonstrate how people from all backgrounds and sectors can influence the way technology transforms our world. It draws on contributions by more than 200 of the world’s leading technology, economic and sociological experts to present a practical guide for citizens, business leaders, social influencers and policy-makers. Emerging technologies are not predetermined forces out of our control, nor are they simple tools with known impacts and consequences.
By connecting the dots across domains and exploring the practical steps that individuals, businesses and governments can take, this book looks to bring all stakeholders together to actively shape an inclusive and sustainable future.
