The fourth industrial revolution

|11 November 2015|

The 46th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in January will discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by the technological age.

The theme of the Meeting is ‘Mastering the fourth Industrial revolution’ and will draw 2,500 leaders from business, government, international organisations, civil society, academia, media and the arts together in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, between 20-23 January.

“There are many challenges in the world today, and I feel that one of the most intense and impactful will be shaping the ‘fourth industrial revolution’ – driven by the speed, the breadth and the complete ‘systems innovation’ of technological change underway.  The challenges are as daunting as the opportunities are compelling. We must have a comprehensive and globally shared understanding of how technology is changing our lives and that of future generations, transforming the economic, social, ecological and cultural contexts in which we live. This is critical, in order to shape our collective future to reflect our common objectives and values,” said Klaus Schwab, founder and executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum.

The annual meeting programme comprises over 250 sessions of which over 100 sessions will be webcast live.
