This is episode 5 in a 10-part podcast series that will introduce listeners to the thinkers, entrepreneurs, and innovators who are already spotting the risks ahead, and seeking to guide humanity towards the land of ease and plenty that some believe is now within reach.

Episode 5 - Regulation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

New episodes will be published every Tuesday from January 23, 2018 through March 6 on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud.

How can regulators assess the risks and mitigate them sensibly without stifling the enormous potential benefits that Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies have to offer? In episode 5 of ‘Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution’, we examine some of the emerging tools regulators are developing to blunt the horns of this particular dilemma.
