13th ways the 4th Industrial Revolution will impact South Africa
The 4th industrial Revolution is coming Here it’s the internet’s second wave and it will change everything for us. Especially in South Africa.
Here are just some of the ways,

We can learn easily by those channels within a few minutes or sometimes within a second. So anyone can learn anything online. Quality education, in the palm of your hands. Online education is almost free for everyone. Our only limits are our connectivity.
- We will be safer: Connective cameras and predictive algorithms will stop crime before it starts. While our devices allow us to track our staff. And get emergency services at the touch of a button.
- We will govern ourselves: Policymaking will finally become inclusive. As the people define their own rules. We will all have a voice & the establishment is whatever we decide to make it.
- We will get healthier: Smart appliances and wearable will track, and recommend better ways of life as prices fall and availability rises. We can monitor and diagnose anywhere. From anywhere.
- We will travel better: Car’s don’t kill people; people can go anywhere without an accident. Driverless cars will keep us safer and even allow us the freedom to work in the middle of a traffic jam. While biofuels will keep emissions low.
- We will waste less: Our connected will track our water, electricity, and food wages. Meaning that we waste less and everyone has more.
- We will shop marketer: Parys can shop in Paris. Tondo can browse Tokyo. Access to the world’s best products. And big data means corporates can understand their market’s needs, make valuable recommendations, and play an active role in making lives better.
- The distribution will improve: Drones, Driverless cars, Biofuel, we can get whatever we need wherever we are without worrying about theft, carbon emissions or delivery dates,
- We will work together: The sharing economy allows for the co-use of anything ride, tools, and skills. Reducing capital expenditure building communities and sharing the profits UBER-UBUNTU.
- We will get financed: Blockchain is changing Fintech. We can build better credit scores via social signals, Vendors can use cryptocurrencies to tread without a bank account. We will be able to Transect cheaper, faster & safer.
- We will squash Inflation: Transparency and access will go up. So transaction costs will go down as will marginal costs & waste. Driving our economy all we need to access. 100 % increase in internet access =R70 Billion growth in GDP meaning more opportunities and more jobs. The 4th revolution is here & we can change everything if we ready for it.
