What are the basic pil­lars of 4th In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion?

Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion is the in­tro­duc­tion of tech­nolo­gies that are chang­ing things at an un­prece­dented pace. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is one of them. We have 3D print­ing, blockchain, pre­ci­sion medicine, au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles. If you are not top of it, you are go­ing to lose out at an in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion. For In­dia, which has a young pop­u­la­tion, these are great op­por­tu­ni­ties pro­vided you have nec­es­sary skills in math­e­mat­ics as well as in com­puter sci­ence.

These re­forms are crit­i­cal. They are not suf­fi­cient be­cause, in the 4th In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion, we will need skills and world-class ed­u­ca­tion. It is very im­por­tant to make sure that the young pop­u­la­tion has ac­cess to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion. Based on that, you can make sure you have the right abil­i­ties to cap­i­talise on op­por­tu­ni­ties. In­dia’s 1.3 bil­lion peo­ple can en­sure pos­i­tive out­comes of these tech­nolo­gies.
