4th industrial revolution – Age of Convergence

We are at the dawn of the biggest, fastest and most impactful transformation in human history. Given its incredible opportunities and scale of disruption, it is critical for all of us to know the nine key tenets of these changes, start preparing ourselves to lead these changes as applicable in our own world and succeed. Fourth industrial revolution unlike the prior three, will be broad based in its scale where different technology trends converge to bring results previously unthinkable. The pace of change will be at times scary given our ability to simulate accurately and rapidly prototype. Progress as we know happens through a simple three step process, a) analyse the problem, b) develop solutions, c) operationalise and optimise. Let’s look at how some of the major technology trends will converge for the next phase of tremendous progress; a quantum leap for humanity. Analysing the problem, is less of a problem now given these three recent trends: Machine Learning and big data solutions are being applied to analyse vast amounts of data (created over the past decades), helping us to discover finer nuances of big problems as well as to recognize problems we were not previously aware of. From analysing machine performance, economic trends, weather patterns, environmental data, animal behavior, human habits and many more, we understand problems a lot better today than ever before. Gaming and expansion of human analytical skills – More than 30,000 years of time is spent every day playing digital games! Strategy based games are scaling up the analytical…
