The fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third.

 

The fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third. It is characterized by a fusion of technological innovation that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres, international consumer electronics, technology and new inventions, we are ever changing and innovating to improve not just life, but the industrial standards. What seemed like science fiction in the 90’s has now been mythbusted and become a reality!

we are wondering what it is happening to
the world everything is changing
the very idea of human being some sort
of natural concept is really going to
change our bodies will be so high-tech
we won’t be able to really distinguish
between what’s natural and what’s
artificial
inside our own heads is the most complex
arrangement of matter in the known
universe
you might ask yourself can we get to be
superhumans

the original Industrial Revolution was
driven by the discovery that you could
use steam engines to do all kinds of
interesting things but that was followed
by additional revolutions for
electricity and computers and
communications technology we’re now in
the early stages of the fourth
Industrial Revolution which is bringing
together digital physical and biological
systems one of the features of this
fourth Industrial Revolution is that it
doesn’t change what we are doing but it
changes us with the ability to visualize
brain activity for example through a
simple consumer-based EEG device it
gives us access to ourselves in ways
that we’ve never before thought possible
it unlocks the black box that is brain
and enables us to really truly be able
to realize an identity that is
aspirational there’s now a scientific
foundation for the effects of
mindfulness on the brain on the genome
on biological aging when the human mind
does know itself then you get the
potential for a new renaissance that
restructures itself in terms of our
relationship to life our relationship to
the planet our relationship to work we
need a different economic model by that
I don’t mean capitalism versus communism
what I’m talking about is a shift in the
system along the lines of the two big
changes that happened in the 20th
century Keynesianism was a much greater
focus on health and education and the
role of government working with business
and then a reaction against that in late
century to neoliberalism where the focus
was in free markets freedom the
individual and getting governments out
of the way we need shift to a new system
that will allow us to meet the basic
needs of every human on the planet that
will live within Glenn she means they’ll
be fairer and there will be focused as
its key goal not on growth per se but
maximizing human wellbeing and history
tells us that a value shift is triggered
by creation of a new story about how we
want to live I see the circular economy
is something which fits very closely
with mankind’s goal to be innovative and
creative and to always progress we can
use asset tracking we can use IT we can
use 3d printing to enable this different
economic model to recover materials feed
them back into the economy and really to
the couple growth from the resource
constraints we have the reason we live
in cities is not different today than it
was ten thousand years ago even if you
have got networks connecting us we still
want to have places what we need in
person
this means the place where we work in
the place where we live are much closer
to each other a city where we don’t need
to have big supply chains in order to
produce things where many things can be
sourced locally thanks to 3d printing
and robotics so if we are able to do
something to transform cities to make it
more efficient then the impact can be
huge
think about the prospect of getting rid
of plastics we must not only be inspired
or informed by nature but actually use
natural organisms with which to design
products and building parts
only instead of varying material
properties were varying biological
functionality design is critical today
because it’s the first signal of human
intention for the question of adding
quality to quantity but isn’t a matter
of simply circulating things that are
potentially toxic it’s circulating
things that are safe and healthy for all
generations so the goal is no longer I
want to be less bad less monotonous less
unsafe less I just it’s really about a
diverse safe healthy of just world with
clean air clean water clean soil clean
energy together we are fighting to
preserve our fragile climate from
irreversible damage and devastation
unthinkable portents we think about the
original Industrial Revolution it was an
energy revolution I like to think of it
as a kind of book ending of a period in
human history during which we use fossil
fuels and it worked very well for us for
a long time but now we have to bring
that to an end we have energy
technologies that can power our
civilization solar wind biomass so then
the question is well how do we get
pretty integration maybe the wind is
blowing in Denmark the sun is shining in
Germany and now you can move that
electricity through an integrated grid
