Global Shapers Community Kathmandu Organizing Shape Talks

Before jumping into the main event. Let’s try to understand what Industrial Revolution is. In general term, Industrial revolution defines the transformation that has occurred in the manufacturing process with the use of available resources; water, electricity, information technology and others.

The transformation such as from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing, and iron production processes, the increasing use of steam power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the factory system.

Industrial Revolution has come to this far using different available tools and resources. According to the World Economic Forum, following available resources were used from the initial day of Industrial Revolution:

  • The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production
  • The Second Industrial Revolution used electric power to create a mass production
  • The Third Industrial Revolution used electronics and information technology to automate production
  • The Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres

Focusing on the main topic of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), Global Shapers Community Kathmandu is organizing a panel discussion aiming to bring forth the discussions in primarily the two areas – jobs/skills and privacy.
