@Michael_Chan thanks for sharing your thoughts and the weforum resource. Do you any other sources of information that could benefit our forum focusing the topic of digital transformation and how we enter the 4th revolution age?

  1. The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production.
  2. The Second used electric power to create mass production.
  3. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production.
