Making a Social Impact in Fourth Industrial Revolution | Jennifer Brooks | TEDxUniversityofStAndrews

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is the fourth major industrial era since the initial Industrial Revolution of the 18th century. It is characterised by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, impacting all disciplines, economies and industries. Jennifer hopes this revolution will come with a social commitment and movement that will inspire all of us to think again about humanities dignity, liberty and equality. Throughout her talk, she encourages us all to embrace the role we play in enabling a future that is inclusive and to use our collective intelligence to shape the impact of this Industrial Revolution.
