Imagine a community where the is a no electricity or cell phones. That community is seen as a non-developed or layed-back community. The introduction of fourth industrial revolution is a friendly reminder that the old traditional way of doing things is slowly evolving. Fourth Industrial Revolution is a new era that builds and extends the impact of digitization in new and unanticipated ways. It is the current and developing environment in which disruptive technologies and trends such as the internet, robots, virtual reality and artificial intelligence are changing the way we live and work.
Although, fourth industrial revolution is meant to make lives easier, many are concerned that the emerging technology might displace more jobs. Internet and computers make communication more simple and effective. Nowadays we can communicate with people who are far away from us. In the olden day’s people depended on letters that took time to reach their destination.
The technology that is used on our smartphones can do a lot of things. Such as taking pictures and playing music. Our smartphones also work as a computer. One can be able to do their work that requires a computer with their phones. Robots have done a lot of great work to many industries already. A robot is a real or imaginary machine that is controlled by a computer and is often made to look like a human. These machines are two or three times faster than human beings.
They are used to do jobs that are too dangerous for humans. For example: a robot is a perfect machine to go into a building that has a bomb. They are mostly used to manufacture cars. The Fourth Industrial revolution has a good impact in our daily lives. According to the World Economic Forum Global Risk report 2017, the Fourth Industrial revolution has the potential to raise income levels and improve quality of lives for all people.
www.livewire.com defines artificial intelligence as the study and development of intelligent machines and computer programs that are able to simulate human intelligence. Today, artificial intelligence usually involves building machines and programs that have the ability to carry out their assigned tasks with human-like intelligence.
The programme is used to imitate human thought and action by analysing data and surroundings, solving or anticipating problems and learning or self-teaching to adapt to a variety of tasks. Fourth Industrial revolution is the future of the world. It must be introduced to rural areas as well so that people from there can also have better lives.
