4th Industrial Revolution – 4IR and all the emerging technologies that are part of this concept are disrupting the world as we know it, particularly affecting nations and businesses that need to adapt quickly to avoid being left behind.
Dinis Guarda and Dr. Rais Hussin, two leading global voices in strategy and research, analyse how future digital tech can be used to developing nations in the publication of a new book titled “4IR: AI, Blockchain, Fintech – Reinventing a Nation.”
The book offers keen insight into the present and future of the 4IR and how the associated variety of evolving technologies can and will have a significant impact on economies, societies and individual people. The book challenges nations to prepare for 4IR, asking them to focus on the needs of their society leading to a future of sustainable, mindful economic growth on a global playing field, and how these, if rightly utilized, might contribute to a better world where nations are seen as collaborators rather than adversaries.
“4IR – Reinventing a Nation” assembles an array of expert thought leaders who all contributed research to the new book and is a testament to the impressive and expansive global network that Dinis Guarda has built during his 25-year career.

Dinis Guarda and Rais Hussin highlight from the new book, 4IR: AI, Blockchain, Fintech. Reinventing a Nation:
“The most important question a nation has to answer is whether it has crafted the right narrative and value for its citizens. Most would agree that the best value creation is about growing the economy in a sustainable way, managing a balanced and inclusive society, making sure there are enough jobs and wellbeing for all its citizens, and that the country overall is fostering positive social impact and stability. This is complicated in the present world though. We live in a new world that is changing at a velocity that has never been witnessed in human history, driven by the 4.0 industry revolution (4IR) and its disruptive technologies.”
