Characterized by new technologies fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will impact all disciplines, economies and industries – and it will do so at an unprecedented rate. World Economic Forum data predicts that by 2025 we will see commercial use of nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than human hair; the first transplant of a 3-D-printed liver; 10 percent of all cars on US roads being driverless; and much more besides. InThe Fourth Industrial Revolution, Schwab outlines the key technologies driving this revolution; discusses the major impacts on governments, businesses, civil society and individuals; and offers bold ideas for what can be done to shape a better future for all

Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution outlines the most important dynamics of the technology revolution, highlights important stakeholders that are often overlooked in our discussion of the latest scientific breakthroughs, and explores 12 different technology areas central to the future of humanity. Emerging technologies are not predetermined forces out of our control, nor are they simple tools with known impacts and consequences. The exciting capabilities provided by artificial intelligence, distributed ledger systems and cryptocurrencies, advanced materials and biotechnologies are already transforming society
