Overview

This book provides a clear explanation of the important issues of 4th Industrial Revolution, including AI, autonomous driving, smart factories, smart cities, and smart farms, and so forth.

Book Intro

When the Industrial Revolution first began, much of human labor was replaced by machine labor. And as another two revolutions, 2nd and 3rd stages proceeded, what requires human labor has decreased gradually. Yet, there is a more important difference between the third and fourth industrial revolutions. Even in the third industrial revolution or the information revolution, the production process was still controlled by humans. But in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, roles that have been reserved for humans might be replaced by machines.

In this Fourth Industrial Revolution, the most important abilities that humans should develop is ones that AI cannot replace at once. In response to wider and deeper knowledge to lead new inventions and discoveries, collaboration between experts is essential. Additionally, creativity and the critical thinking to set and solve problems on one's own are becoming more important. In the future, only people with abilities ​​that cannot be replaced by AI will survive. 

Like all industrial revolutions so far, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is, after all, a matter of science. Those who will lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution must be being studying and developing science and technology even right now. MID Science Trends Team thought it would be nice to share the story of the Fourth Industrial Revolution which is created by science, from the perspective of science. To this end, MID has been working with leading scientific authors and experts since last summer to discuss the scientific issues that are the center of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and to organize them so that they can be easily understood by anyone.

This book contains the perspectives of scientific experts on to what extent artificial intelligence will replace what people can do, how convenient our lives will be in a city with new technology, and what capabilities are most needed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
