We 4.0 for Industry 4.0
Recent technological advances are fueling a debate on the role of humans in future economy. A new study has found that over 20% of Singapore’s full-time equivalent workforce will have their jobs displaced by 2028. With digitalisation and disruptive technology driving the 4th Industrial Revolution, businesses will demand a new kind of worker, aptly named Worker 4.0.
As we all discuss the forces shaping Industry 4.0, we must pay equal attention to what it would take us, the human workers at all levels, to be Worker 4.0. Vivek would discuss some of the insights he has gathered on how we could prepare ourselves.
