Session Description

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) – characterised by re fusion of the digital, biological, and physical worlds, as well as the growing utilisation of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, robotics, 3D printing, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT), and advanced wireless technologies, among others – has ushered in a new era of economic disruption. One with uncertain economic consequences for Africa, but one that also represents a unique opportunity to drive large-scale transformation and competitiveness. Africa has been left behind during the past industrial revolutions. Will it be different this time?
