About this event

As the Fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, what innovations are in store?

Advances in computing power, artificial intelligence, robotics, and material science can accelerate the shift toward more environmentally friendly products of all kinds. Digital fabrication techniques, including 3D printing, can bring manufacturing closer to customers and make spare-part maintenance easier and cheaper.

Breakthroughs in biotechnology can allow replacement bones and transplantable organs to be grown from 3D printed patient’s stem cells. As discoveries unfold about human brain functions, we can look toward neural implants and brain-machine interfaces that address cognitive diseases and potentially enhance human intelligence.

New energy technologies can create low-cost, plentiful, and sustainable sources of power—and power storage—to wean the planet off first-industrial-revolution fossil fuels. Robots can handle household chores, assist nurses, and even build themselves.

The scale and breadth of technological innovations is revolutionizing the way we do business. 

Join us for a Fireside chat with Lebo Gunguluza as we explore how the Fourth Industrial Revolution can impact individuals and society.
