Introduction

The process of industrialization has only known a forward march since its inception in the 19th and 20th century. The fast pace of this process after the cold war era cannot be overemphasized. Today we are thought to have entered the 4th Industrial Revolution which is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.
