What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution? And what has it to do with ensuring safe and beneficial technology innovation?

Risk Bites takes a look at how emerging and converging technologies are radically changing our world, and the unique challenges and opportunities that we’re facing as a result. These include the challenges of socially responsible innovation, regulation and governance, ensuring the benefits of advanced manufacturing capabilities, and grappling with the ethics of innovation.

(The 4th industrial revolution is sometimes referred to as Industry 4.0, or Industrie 4.0)

Kalydosos says:

In my small opinion some things discussed in this video are a bit frightening, like doing things responsibly with the new technology? I end up thinking, about what happened after gunpowder and the splitting of the atom two technologies one that lead to another. Millions enslaved and slaughtered in the process I'm not sure if that is progress if we do meet aliens from another part of our Milky Way Galaxy because of the fourth Industrial revolution those aliens better be very good at violence not peaceful or they'll end up like the Tasmanians. By that time I fear half the planet will be gone and I mean the humans with high fertility with no means of defending themselves against the future onslaught planned for them or maybe A.I. thinks "bollocks I'll get rid of the lot of em!"

The Instigators says:

Due to this many will lose jobs. In fact, in India many companies have minimised the labour force. And moved towards automation. So, in coming years, I think there will be social war where one will fight for survival and other side will fight for money. Because this automation will mostly benefit the manufacturer.

I wait and see how ur experts do this I'll be setting up heads and tails in combinatorics math on what possiblity outcome I'm still missing parts

Ryan Rodrigues says:

This all took thousands of years for us to reach where we are today. Don't make it sound as if from fire to artificial intelligence it took just one day of human civilization.
