We are witnessing a technological revolution that will and is disrupting how we live, work, and relate to one another. The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is inclusive of advancement in technologies in computing power, connectivity, artificial intelligence (AI), biotechnology and other innovations. The lines between our physical and digital worlds are blurring at an accelerated rate.
These advancements are bringing benefits to many but because of the speed, scope and impact of 4IR, millions are at risk of being left behind.
Join us as we address the greater inequalities imposed by labour market changes, gaps in education, the gender divide, and the critical role of social media in ensuring we can build a world that is inclusive, just, and ethical. The session will begin with an opening keynote and panel discussion followed by an audience Q&A.
Time & Date: Friday 16 April 2021, 4.30pm - 5.45pm UTC
