Today, we are experiencing a technological revolution,that is fundamentally altering the way we live, work and relate to one another. Its scale, scope and complexity will create a transformation humankind has not experienced before. We do not know how this will unfold (adapted from Klaus Schwab WEF).
The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. It is affecting the financial industry already.This course provides an overview of the current status quo.

With Block chain and Crypto-currencies on the rise, this course explains the underlying mechanisms.
