Mar 24 17
The World Economic Forum opened the doors of its new San Francisco-based Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Its mission is to accelerate the deployment of technology and science for positive impact on individuals and society, while minimizing their downside risks. A plenary address by Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco and Governor Jay R. Inslee of Washington will mark the opening of the Center. The latest developments in science and technology can see companies introducing innovations that make conventional regulations obsolete and break down boundaries and frameworks, creating unintended societal consequences. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is reshaping industries, challenging existing regulatory frameworks and redefining what it means to be a human. Among the topics the Center will address are the jobs of the future, artificial intelligence and ethics, Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), cross-border data flows, civil drones, autonomous vehicles and the environmental commons. The creation of the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution was first announced in October and is capped by the official opening of the offices at the historic Presidio of San Francisco, in the heart of Silicon Valley, the world's leading center for technology start-ups, innovation and investing.
