Pundits and observers have made a variety of predictions about the future of Industry 4.0. For sure the “future of work” will see jobs disappear and new opportunities appear. Are your policy makers equipped to develop far-sighted policies needed to overcome the economic changes? Join us in a learning circle to explore the Singapore case study and apply learning for your country.
in an article “Industry 4.0 Opportunities and Threats for Government,” Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum, rightly summarized “Like the revolutions that preceded it, the Fourth Industrial Revolution has the potential to raise global income levels and improve the quality of life for populations around the world.”
The combination of “cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing,” promises unprecedented industrial and manufacturing productivity. This is known as “Industry 4.0” or “The Fourth Industrial Revolution”.
What is the role of government and policy makers in the era of digital transformation and are they equipped to lead the change?
An example of Industry 4.0 as cited in Wikepedia states “machines which can predict failures and trigger maintenance processes autonomously or self-organized logistics which react to unexpected changes in production. “
Published articles have suggested IR4.0 may have beneficial effects for emerging economies such as India. However, developing a road map is a key.
The digital disruption facing policy makers can be categorized as digital infrastructure, education, regulation and governance. In this learning circle we do a deep dive into several Singapore government policies for the Education sector in leading the transition to 4.0. We then contextualize how such policies can be evolved and implemented in emerging economies.
