Don’t panic, it’s just the fourth industrial reshuffling
The fourth industrial revolution does not mean the end of the world, nor the end of jobs — in fact, it will probably create more of them
The fourth industrial revolution (4IR) is happening now. What was the third? What was the second? Bet you couldn’t tell me without asking Google. So, according to Google it went steam power and mechanisation; then mass production; then IT; and I guess the latest is a culmination of all of these things: robots and artificial intelligence (AI). There is a little bit of trepidation when it comes to 4IR. The fear goes as follows: not only are robots going to be able to do anything a human can do as the hardware becomes more resilient, they will be able to do it faster, smarter and, most probably, cheaper. They will learn and process in ways humans cannot and eventually rule the world.
