The 4th Industrial Revolution
Digitization, automation, artificial intelligence and robots
I learned in school that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".
As we think about digitization, automation, artificial intelligence and robots as the 4th industrial revolution, we should, in my opinion, take a look how our society changed during the first, second and third industrial revolution.
Three major events come to my mind:
1. Two world wars
We can't simply expect that such a major change in society won't bring even more change and turbulence.
What is different this time? Who are we going to fight with? Are we going to be on social security and watch TV all day long?
I can only say what frustrates and irritates me the most when reading the articles about AI, robots and automation.
Well known (rich) people saying to us more or less ordinary people just to give up. They are saying that our future is set. We can't do anything about it.
Instead of performing a job that you are doing right now, there will be job for you in the service sector. Caring for old people. Probably washing feet to some old random guy.
This lovely video clip I found on YouTube, resonates with me. "We are the BORG", kind of sums it up for me.
"The resistance is futile"
"You will service us"
"You will be assimilated"
