The fucking World Economic Forum.
The 4th Industrial Revolution, which includes developments in artificial intelligence and machine-learning, robotics, nanotech, 3D printing, and genetics and biotech, will cause widespread disruption to labour markets over the next 5 years, with enormous changes in the skill sets needed to thrive.
The fucking World Economic Forum is discussing these fringe topics. 5 years ago, this was utterly inconceivable. Transhumanism? Artificial intelligence? Genetic engineering? That was the realm of geek circles on underground Internet forums, not the world's business elite.
If the WEF is taking all this seriously, you know it's serious.
