Where is MACPA in the 4th Industrial Revolution?
Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum described it this way, "We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society."
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is unlike any before due to the size, speed, and scope of the changes driven by exponential and combinatorial trends.
