The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) looms on the horizon, characterized by the fusion of cyber, physical, and human realms and primarily driven by advancements in artificial intelligence. This revolution presents profound and far-reaching impacts on humanity, necessitating higher-order and higher-dimensional empathy and creativity in design and innovation. As traditional design methods and processes risk becoming inadequate for human-centered innovation, future designers must be poised to collaborate with creative artificial intelligence while empathizing entrepreneurship and leadership to ensure a human-led future.
