Industrial Revolution 4.0 Webinar Series

We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.

A Fourth Industrial Revolution is shifting the economy from simple digitization to innovation based on combinations of technologies that are forcing companies to re-examine the way they do business. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.

The exponential speed of current breakthroughs is being accelerated by the shift to a virtual world due to COVID-19. And the breadth and depth of these changes herald the transformation of systems of production, management, and governance. Our Industrial Revolution 4.0 webinar series will feature nine different discussions that will each explore how these changes are disrupting almost every industry and what Canada must do be at the forefront of these innovations.
