Recalculating Higher Education in the Asia Pacific Region within the Emerging Fourth Industrial Revolution

At the intersection of the three major concepts that orient this conference, it becomes increasingly clear that the relationship between various accepted notions of the two “active causal agents” in play, namely “innovation” and “entrepreneurship” have been given highly variable meanings within the dynamics of an approaching era of artificial intelligence and its many applications. As a result, the notion of “value” becomes highly dependent on the meanings assigned to these two driving forces. This paper seeks to develop some hypotheses that link those differentiated meanings to varied notions of the two driving concepts. It concludes by positing a set of questions that impinge on both accepted and emerging notions of higher education institutions seeking both to further these developments, through their own notions of innovation and entrepreneurship, and create or sustain enduring positions of relevance within the higher education community.
