Thought Row Thoughts On The Fourth Industrial Revolution: The Industrial Revolution is defined as the process of change in modern history from a handcraft economy, using tools, to one dominated by machines in manufacturing. If you are reading this, you are now moving into The Fourth Industrial Revolution. Like it or not, life will never be the same for virtually everyone on the planet.

I asked AI to provide the definition of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and here's what it served up.

"The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) refers to the current era of technological advancements and innovations in fields such as robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), nanotechnology, biotechnology, and 3D printing. It builds upon the previous three industrial revolutions that took place over the past two centuries, each introducing new technologies that transformed the way humans live, work, and interact with each other.

The first industrial revolution saw the advent of mechanization, steam power, and the textile industry, while the second industrial revolution introduced mass production and electrification. The third industrial revolution brought about computerization and automation, leading to the digital age we are currently in.

The fourth industrial revolution is characterized by the convergence of physical, digital, and biological systems, resulting in the emergence of smart machines and cyber-physical systems. These advancements have the potential to revolutionize industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and energy, leading to increased efficiency, productivity, and sustainability."

There you have it, according to AI. Now here's the scary part, read this quote.

Those Who ‘Master’ Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology Will Be ‘Master of the World’: Klaus Schwab.

Klaus Schwab is the chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF). During the event in Dubai, Mr. Schwab boldly called on global governments to join forces and control new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), ultimately deciding the fate of humankind. I sense one world government in the making if he has his way. Especially if the leaders of other countries march in unison. Heaven help us.

On the other hand, Elon Musk also spoke at the WEF event, and he agrees with me, or better yet, I should say I agree with him.

“Elon musk stated, "we should be a little bit concerned about actually becoming too much of a single world government … If I may say, we want to avoid creating a civilizational risk by having—frankly, this might sound a little odd—too much cooperation between governments."

If, in today's world, the term artificial intelligence has become a trendy thing to say and talk about, well, you ain't seen nothing yet. Read below.

More from AI’s definition concerning The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

"Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning: These technologies enable machines to perform tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence and decision-making.

Robotics: Robots are increasingly being used in manufacturing, healthcare, and other industries to perform tasks that are repetitive or hazardous to humans.

Internet of Things (IoT): IoT refers to the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items that are connected to the internet and can collect and exchange data.

3D printing: This technology allows for the creation of three-dimensional objects from digital designs, revolutionizing the manufacturing process and enabling rapid prototyping.

Overall, the fourth industrial revolution represents a new era of technological innovation that has the potential to transform industries and create new opportunities for economic growth and human development."

My take; if you cannot adapt or adopt these new technologies. You will become obsolete in your lifetime. Governments will use these technologies for political purposes, all along telling you that it's in the best interest when it comes to serving mankind.

All this technology is already available and will impact your life almost immediately. Will there be good things to come out of it? Absolutely. But as we've learned from past history, technology in the wrong hands can be dangerous. Stay on top of this revolution, especially if you are young. You will be living with it until the day you die.

I don't want to completely portend "doom and gloom." It's not difficult to see that there is the potential for a dehumanizing effect on all of us. If you're still with me so far? Consider this; every industrial revolution caused people to live better. Everyone became more productive, which allowed people to have more leisure time. More often than not, that leisure time was spent with family. Which created healthy bonding. Healthy bonding thrives on love and understanding. And ultimately, this permeated our culture.

"Never wanting to lose my life and soul to technology, I had to ground myself in nature. It was the only thing that held true. Nature never asked for more than it was willing to give." Rod Jones Artist-Writer
