Students review and respond the following Asia Vision Series: 4th Industrial Revolution in Asia, “Digital transformation and the 4th Industrial Revolution (https://news.microsoft.com/apac/features/digital-transformation-4th-industrial-revolution/) Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
Microsoft have invested capital and expertise to develop this website and accompanying video case-studies. They clearly see benefit in educating their consumers about the impacts of disruption and the 4IR. Microsoft accept that the pace of disruption in Asia will continue unabated, and likely increase with new technology.
Microsoft are clear that people are important in the transitional times we find ourselves in. That does not mean that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being ignored. The links to further case-studies make the AI-business link clear.
In Part 3, Mr. Ralph Haupter explicitly discusses the role of millennials in disruption and business development. I want you to consider your role in business as you become a graduate and begin professional careers.
Provide your plan as a millennial in the 4th IR. How are you going to contribute to your vocational sector, and specific business, to manage/adopt/adapt/cope with/evaluate disruptive technologies? Consider your personal strategies with tech now, and how they can be improved to contribute to your professionalisation.
This assignment has been designed to encourage students to consider their engagement with businesses in Asia and impact of the 4IR. On graduation, students are likely to be involved in a business that either operates in, or with, Asian business sectors. All business sectors are experiencing technological disruption. Students are encouraged to consider HOW they will ensure their professional career desires within the time of 4IR.
