People don't have to look very hard to find gloomy predictions about the effect artificial intelligence (AI) and industry 4.0 is going to have on the working world. Whether or not you should worry about AI and industry 4.0 taking your job is still an open question, but this revolutionary impact on many sectors -  including manufacturing, finance and service - should be uncontroversial.


We now understands the power of AI and industry 4.0 better than any other time.
