Have you ever heard of the Fourth Industrial Revolution? The first 3 industrial revolutions brought mass production, assembly lines, electricity, and information technology – but, now, living a great milestone in human history, with the ever-growing presence of technologies in all walks of our lives. The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, is a concept developed by the German Klaus Schwab, director and founder of the World Economic Forum. For him, industrialization has reached a fourth phase, which “will fundamentally transform the way we live, work and relate, unlike anything human beings have experienced before.”
Technology is part of the evolutionary process of humanity. Since cave times we have been looking for ways to enhance new tools and make our lives much more practical. This techno-human combination, which in the past was with sticks and stone chips, culminates today with digital technologies.
Technology is increasingly present in our lives and some tools have emerged to revolutionize the way we interact in society. Today we can call a driver through the app or drive by following the best route in real time through Waze or Google Maps. You can also make reservations for our upcoming holiday travel through Booking.com or Airbnb. Nor do we need to go to the supermarket, we place the order with a single click. Never has the world been so practical and accelerated.
