Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution invites and catalyses global cooperation dedicated to developing policy principles and frameworks that accelerate the application of science and technology in the global public interest.

The Centre is a platform to discuss ethical issues, values and regulation of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as the internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence/machine learning. Targeted projects engage multiple stakeholders, including regulators, to develop policy frameworks that can be applied across industries and national borders.

A global hub of expertise, knowledge-sharing and collaboration, the Centre is located at the Presidio in San Francisco, USA, in close proximity to the world’s foremost technology companies, start-ups, investors, venture capital firms and leading academic institutions.
