In this episode, Manasi and Sualeha sit down with Rebecca King, The Lead of the World Economic Forum's Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR). With a background in consulting, specifically with a focus on education, Rebecca currently works at the WEF to contextualize the interrelationship between emerging technology and governance models in both a local and global context. We begin the episode by breaking down the promises and misconceptions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, superexponential growth, and the power of emerging industries, such as the growing global bioeconomy that is projected to grow to over $30 trillion in the U.S. alone over the next two decades. Rebecca shares her insight on our current VUCA context—a world characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—expanding on how jumps in private and public data accessibility and individual interpretation have influenced VUCA innovation as well as scientific polarization. Rebecca also expands on how government often finds itself on the back foot of innovation, but experimentation and iteration in government through the form of policy entrepreneurship and gov-tech allows for both tech and innovation to become more aligned. We close out the episode by discussing the framework of agile governance, and its relevance to how countries, organizations, and governments are able to navigate the unknowns of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
