Our ‘444 Goals’ means Four Focuses in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “444” Goals encompass Digital Inclusion, Financial Inclusion, Inclusive Growth, and R&D.
Why the 444 Goals?
New technologies are creating new opportunities for human advancement. In the same way, these new technologies bring about serious threats. There are possibilities and pitfalls. This is the biggest irony of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
From Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to autonomous vehicles, Blockchain, drones, neurotechnologies, and quantum computing, these new technologies are disruptive and changing the way we live, work, do business, and communicate.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is widening the gap between the haves and the have not. On the one hand, the biggest gainers in this Revolution will be the providers of intellectual and physical capital. These are the innovators and investors. On the other hand, the biggest losers will be the providers of labour. These are the workers whose lives depend on labour for capital. So there are both opportunities and threats; possibilities and pitfalls, depending on which part of the divide you are.
This is why seizing the opportunities and avoiding the pitfalls of the Fourth Industrial Revolution requires that we consider moral and ethical questions as they affect our world today. New technologies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution will affect individual identity, models, ownership, privacy, and value creation.
Therefore, inequality may be the greatest concern in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
As an IP & IT law firm in a knowledge economy and digital age, we see the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a shift from digitization to innovation at the speed of combined disruptive technologies. This shift will force companies to change their business models, which in turn will have socio-economic impacts, locally and globally. From a moral and ethical standpoint, we hope to see a world where innovators and investors of intellectual and physical capital—the gainers—help create sustainable development to benefit our world.
This is why we have come up with our Four Focuses in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (444 Goals): Digital Inclusion, Financial Inclusion, Inclusive Growth, and Research & Development (R&D)
