For example, the revolution that haunts today’s world is the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), which can be characterised by the digital-physical symbiosis and an unwavering veer toward digitalization of work (e.g. Artificial Intelligence [AI], smart technology, and automation). 

Despite its advancement of technology, the social impact of the 4IR can be seen in AI’s failure to produce fairness during decision-making, causing harm to the already-marginalised group. It is therefore crucial to minimise risks as the system is being revolutionised. For example, in order to address lack of AI fairness, the UK government established the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation to monitor and regulate unethical use of AI.
