As one of the strategic partners with The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, PwC continues to build on a relationship with the WEF by sharing experience, skills and insights to help promote a safer, more equitable society. Together, we’ve collaborated on initiatives ranging from anti-corruption to climate change.
Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies impact people and entities around the world. Our continuing partnership with the Centre examines how technology can be designed and deployed in ways that help protect the interests, security and safety of all people.
We are working side by side with other companies and governments to help develop governance protocols and frameworks on the topics of AI, IoT and data policy. Three PwC fellows are engaged in these three disciplines led by PwC principals Anand Rao, Rob Mesirow and Jane Allen. These workstreams explore how 4IR technologies build on PwC’s portfolio of 4IR-related thought leadership, research and insights. They are also central to our partnership with WEF: to help promote ethically deployed technologies for the betterment of society—and particularly for the benefit of future generations.
