Fourth Industrial Revolution

This is the last episode in a 10-part podcast series that introduces you 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.


The Fourth Industrial Revolution is an event of dizzying complexity and scale, but it is fundamentally of our own creation. Its story has not been written and its outcomes are not determined. It is our actions, in their millions, that will shape its course. How can you play your part in securing a benign revolution and steering it away from disaster?

In our final episode of ’Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution’, we convene our own experts to discuss what we can all do as individuals to play our part in this great and important drama. With Nicholas Davies, Head of Society and Innovation.

All episodes from the series can be found on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud.
