  • Key point 1
    The “fourth industrial revolution” is supposed to be about eliminating humans from the workplace by artificially intelligent computers.
  • Key point 2
    Concepts like the fourth industrial revolution are, in fact, decades-old, as are the examples that are used to support the argument.
  • Key point 3
    These concepts of industrial and technological revolutions are propagandist visions, based neither on profound research nor on knowledge of the world.
