Ztudium, Dinis Guarda and Dr. Rais Hussin, leading global voices in strategy and research, analyze how future digital tech can be used by developing nations in the publication of a new book titled “4IR: AI, Blockchain, Fintech – Reinventing a Nation.”
The Fourth Industrial Revolution – 4IR – and all the emerging technologies are part of this concept, disrupting the world as we know it, particularly affecting nations and businesses that need to adapt quickly to avoid being left behind.
“4IR: AI, Blockchain, Fintech – Reinventing a Nation” offers insights into the present and future of the 4IR and how the associated variety of evolving technologies can and will have a significant impact on economies and societies. The book challenges nations to prepare for 4IR, asking them to focus on the needs of their society, leading to a future of sustainable, mindful economic growth on a global field, and how this, if rightly utilized, might contribute to a better world where nations are seen as collaborators rather than adversaries.
