Abstract

This study aims to scrutinise the present trend of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) that emphasises on the industry and to appraise the initiatives espoused by the Government of Malaysia in view of this. Many research works have shown that several advanced nations have begun deploying advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, Internet of things (IoT) and nanotechnology. This study substantiates that Malaysia is the new entrant for the 4IR and goes ahead to take measures for dealing with the challenges that come with it. The efforts taken by the government to endorse the deployment of 4IR include offering allowances, training and education. This paper is split into two segments. The first offers an assessment of the global 4IR trend in other nations. The second segment reviews the preparations by Malaysia for facing the 4IR challenges. The study collected information through multiple sources such as Springer, Elsevier, Research Gate, Google Scholar, and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
