Today, we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. Developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nano technology, 3D printing and biotechnology, to name just a few, are all building on and amplifying one another. In today’s scenario of this massive technological change accompanied by talent shortages, mass unemployment and growing inequality-reskilling and upskilling of today’s workers will be critical. The current technological revolution need not become a race between humans and machines but rather an opportunity for work to truly become a channel through which people recognize their full potential. To ensure that we achieve this vision, we must become more specific and much faster in understanding the changes underway and cognizant of our collective responsibility to lead our educational ecosystem through this transformative moment.
