(calm music) - Today we face what may be the most significant and rapidly occurring set of changes in the history of humanity. The evidence is becoming clearer that all of us are living through the first years of a new revolution, a transition from one age to another. The fourth industrial revolution will transform our world to affect how we learn, work, move, and interact. By learning from the influence of several major historical events, we can peer into our possible future enabled by the convergence of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and self-driving cars.
We won't necessarily answer the question of where we will find ourselves on the other side of this revolution, but we will have a better sense of what it may mean to each of us, our organizations, and for society in general. I'm delighted to go on this exploratory venture with you. I believe the fourth industrial revolution will be significant in our human story. None of us will be able to sit on the sidelines and watch it pass. The world is about to change into something unrecognizable, and we are all going to be a part of it.
