Technology

If you’re talking about digital, it’s already too late…

George Muir is a futurist with IKEA. As he told delegates at WORKTECH London 2016, a fourth industrial revolution is just around the corner…

George Muir is charged with visualising the future IKEA workplace. A speaker at WORKTECH London 2016, Muir talked about four great waves of technological change – from steam power and the industrial age of efficiency to the birth of the microprocessor and now a coming era ‘when humans and technology are set to become one’.

In this video interview for the Academy, Muir explains that the physical and digital environment must be conceived as a single entity. As he says: ‘If you’re talking about digital, it’s already too late.’
