THE COMING INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION: THE IMPACT ON COMPETITIVENESS AND EMPLOYMENT

10:15-11:30 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G1
The Fourth Industrial Revolution – driven by the convergence of digitalization, robotics, and additive manufacturing – is promising to herald a new era in production efficiencies and productivity. This is expected to not only result in reduced costs and enhanced product development, but eventually it could fundamentally alter the role of labour in the entire global economy. The resulting disruptions are not without risk and, if not properly managed, could spur greater income inequality as well as the disenfranchisement of large sectors of the workforce. How can such potential negative effects be addressed and what role can governments play to ensure smooth transitions in labour markets? How should businesses adjust their strategies, if at all, to take into account the potential social impact resulting from Industry 4.0?

Highlights

We need to automatize the process and introduce changes in the data, and this will require a stronger cooperation with the school systems.

Gianpietro Benedetti
Chief Executive Officer, Danieli

New technology platforms will create opportunities for jobs. Skills play a key role and we need to look at the education systems and teach our children to be creative, to collaborate and learn.

Murat Sönmez
Chief Business Officer, Member of the Managing Board, World Economic Forum

The labour market is turning global. Many companies will soon be forced to compete on the global market, rather than within just one country.

Stanislav Protassov
Co-Founder, Senior Vice-President of Engineering, Acronis

The main issue in exploiting data is not technology, but the skills needed to understand what these data mean.

Chief Technology Officer, Teradata

Skilled employees will be the number one force driving successful digital transformation.
