We recently attended Pictfor’s panel event ‘How can we ensure the Fourth Industrial Revolution benefits everyone?’ which took place in the Houses of Parliament and was a great opportunity to network with likeminded people, discuss our thoughts on the benefits and shortcomings of the 4IR and listen to a number of high-profile speakers including Shadow Minister for Digital, Liam Bryne and Vice President of International Corporate Affairs, Ed Lewin.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is the revolution currently transforming our world and is differentiated from those that preceded it by the speed of technological breakthroughs and the tremendous impact of new systems. Essentially, the 4IR is disrupting every industry in every country, transforming the ways in which production, management and governance is carried out – hence, the debates regarding where investments should be made and what the role of industry, Government, universities and individuals should be was all relative in terms of enabling the UK to benefit economically and regionally whilst ensuring that no one gets left behind.
Following on from the debate there was a strong consensus that more can be done on skills support to aid the collaboration between technology and design and, additionally, the importance of ensuring the UK stays at the forefront of science and research was agreed unanimously.
A growing business operating in the IT sector, Cloud Kickers’ vision is to bring high tech to small companies, without introducing excessive time, cost or risk and we believe that now is a crucial time to establish the UK as leading in the global supply chain.
