Please join me for my session Can Your Reputation Survive 4IR?.The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) represents previously unimaginable ways in which disruptive technology becomes embedded in global supply chains, societies and the human body. As a result of this rapid and dramatic change, organizations are facing unprecedented threats and risk events that are having a profound impact on their ability to do business. Many organizations today are unprepared for the rapid rate of change, unprecedented risk scenarios and the required governance activities to survive in the 4IR.

AI and the Future of Risk Management

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other disruptive technologies such as the Internet of Things (IOT) present significant challenges for risk practitioners and those responsible for organizational governance. AI and IOT are driving technology innovation at unprecedented levels. The rate of change as well as the degree of change are occurring faster that we have ever seen before.

The dramatic rate of change is best illustrated by Buckminster Fuller’s knowledge doubling curve. Buckminster Fuller was an American futurist, prominent author, and university professor.  Fuller developed the knowledge doubling curve in the 1980s to illustrate how the collective knowledge of humankind was changing. Knowledge is defined as information and skills acquired through experience or education and Fuller’s knowledge doubling curve is intended to measure the knowledge rate of change in the modern world. Fuller determined that knowledge doubled every century until 1900.
