Three industrial revolutions have been among the most seminal events in human history, and now we are in the fourth, Industry 4.0. From time immemorial, we have created breakthroughs with any number of devices, machines, and methodologies, all in an effort to make our lives easier. But each new age of innovation has brought ever more daunting challenges to our very existence.
Today’s technological revolution, Industry 4.0, is fundamentally changing every aspect of our lives more radically than ever before. To be successful in this revolution, one must be able to adapt to those profound changes, since all of us are vulnerable to being displaced by software programs, robots, or artificial intelligence.
Like individuals, companies that have been unable to transition to Industry 4.0 have declined or even declared bankruptcy, while new startups have made their creators billionaires. The old rules no longer apply. We need to wake up to the realities that are taking place now and will inevitably continue into the future.
