Technology, AI, robotics. We don’t always see it, but these days we are always surrounded by it.

And will robots replace our jobs, or will they create a new industry requiring new workers to learn new skills?

We went to a most unlikely place, away from all the tech centers, to find out where the future of technology, AI, and robots are taking us in the fourth industrial revolution. The most encouraging thing we found was good people who are working hard to stay ahead and keep us safe in the race of technology.
