Where is Asia Going? Mobility as an Aspect of the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Join the US-Asia Technology Management Center for the first session in our 2021 Autumn Seminar Series, Mobility: Asia Moves Forward in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

New technologies, especially data-based analytics and automation tools, are causing transformational changes in work patterns and lifestyles around the world that can be referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  A major feature of this revolution is increased mobility — not only new ways in which people and goods move (or are moved) but new things that people can do while on the go, such as mobile banking, shopping, telehealth, education, and remote work.  This presentation will provide an overview on the advent of new mobility patterns in Asia, with focus on areas in which Asia innovators may actually be moving ahead of the U.S.  

SPEAKER: Dr. Richard Dasher, Director, US-Asia Technology Management Center, Stanford University
