Abstract: Industry 4.0 creating a total digital robotisation of human society is the fourth and last phase of the Industrial Revolution started with the European Renaissance around three centuries ago. It will cause essential social and economic changes moving humans to their next development step usually called Post Industrial Society. Post Industrial Society will be determined by its institutional framework, formal rules and behavioral norms based on a corresponding value system. It will be concerned with new economic and social entities called humanoids, further developed robots indeed. Robots will replace humans in almost all human economic activities. Whole branches and economic sectors will be reduced to cyber systems. Particularly, banking system will be automated to become a smart system for banking transactions. Fourth Industrial Revolution will imply dramatic social consequences for human society increasing both productivity and unemployment. Higher productivity will allow introduction of basic income for all society members. Unemployment will be solved by development of new economic branches like leisure and entertainment. Main Result of Fourth Industrial Revolution is development of artificial intelligence (AI) and creating autonomous robots called humanoids. AI will be the highest level technology developed by humans, replicating themselves. As every technology, robots can be used or misused by humans. Furthermore, humans could be locked out by robots. In order to reduce misuse of robots we suggest a common ethics for human beings and humanoids as an institutional framework of Post Industrial Society.
