Introduction to “Industrial Revolution V” or “IR V”

An Introduction to the Concept of Industrial Revolution V or IR V coined by “LKN”

I am Lokesh Kumar Narayana (LKN). I have been envisioning what the Next Industrial Revolution will shape up to. As I proceeded further, I decided to capture my thoughts and convert them to books. I published my first book, “The Odyssey of Industrial Revolution – The Dawn,” and many times pointed out that I would be covering the significant aspects of Industry 5.0 in the upcoming book I am researching on “The Odyssey of Industrial Revolution – The Dusk.”

I have started my research, and it’s ongoing for the Second Book, which is in progress, and I am excited to inform you all that it’s shaping out well.

An individual brought to my notice that he used Industry 5.0 as a term about something specific part of Sustainability and Waste Management; Though I want to disregard his statements as Industry 5.0 is more of a general term and has been inevitably planned from the time Industry 1.0. I don’t want to involve in trouble. I do agree that the Next Industrial Revolution will result in Industry 5.0 or Fifth Industrial Revolution or 5IR or Next-Gen Industry or Next Generation Industry whatsoever it would undoubtedly be a by-product of the Next Industrial Revolution. It will have different traits like how the previous industrial revolutions were.

All Said and done, I don’t want to dwell on seeking unwanted attention leading to problems in the future. Hence, I decided to present the highlights of the ongoing research that I am conducting in line with the Second Book. I am planning to publish along with that I would like to highlight here in this the Term I will be using to refer to the By-Product of the Next Industrial Revolution will be “Industrial Revolution V” or “IR V” where V signifies to the Roman Numerical although the reference is same as the Industry 5.0 or Fifth Industrial Revolution or 5IR or Next-Gen Industry or Next Generation Industry; I would be using the term coined by me “Industrial Revolution V” or “IR V” for the sole purpose of ensuring I don’t possibly infringe any possible intellectual properties as claimed recently.

By writing this post and article, I also claim that this thought process is my own and a conclusion based on the research being made, which is still in progress and would certainly change to a degree based on research completion.

Traits of Industrial Revolution V or IR V as described by “LKN”

Traits of Industrial Revolution V or IR V will be the most disruptive innovations arising from well researched and developed technology-based outcomes that will not only change the way the products, services, and consumables are being used but also will change how the manufacturing and the functioning of these products, services, and consumables. You would not only see a Flat Hierarchy Structure in the IR V Companies but also will witness the increase in the number of companies facilitating and operating globally. These companies’ revenue will be much higher than today and possibly work from multiple habitats. The Processed Information available for these organizations of IR V is immense, and the possibilities of how it can be used are also enormous. We have seen previous industry versions operating by scaling manufacturing times, driven by information and resources; the IR V will see the immense number of Disruptive Innovations taking humans on a completely different path than before. We would be a generation that will witness and enable the possible growth humans can have in one single Industrial Revolution. The IR V will make human life a lot easier by transforming their ways of working to their consumption of services and consumables.

All said and done with additional responsibilities comes the different challenges; there is a need to make our values stronger with value and human-centric based governance and control mechanisms to direct and make a positive impact with IR V. The IR V in the making will be susceptible and will undoubtedly have a negative effect and may make be the cause for human extinction if not managed and directed well.

Here are a few of the aspects that IR V or Industrial Revolution V has for us based on my research so far:

Intellectual Property of the Term “Industry 5.0”


It was brought to my notice on 5th December 2021 that one of the individuals has used the term “Industry 5.0” in one of his blogs and considers himself to be the person who coined the term “Industry 5.0” along with a view of my use of the same term in unjustified as it infringes the intellectual property rights.

Out of words and thoughts may be is the apt description of my state at the moment.

Just because someone used the term which was supposed to be obvious in one of the blogs doesn’t make it restrictive to use it.

I have someone claiming they used “Industry 5.0” as a term in their blogs and if I don’t join hands with them – I don’t have the right to use it because it’s their intellectual property.

Well “Industry 5.0” was predefined back in 18th Century with the naming convention that was accepted.

People have false claims for everything, I would appreciate if they had broader picture on the subject in question too.

Anyways I have decided to use my own term for the “Industry 5.0” or “5IR” or “Fifth Industrial Revolution” or “Industrial Revolution V” or “IR V” not that I accept their statement but more off considering the value I have for my time and rejecting these petty issues that are arising.

I will let you know the term I will be utilising for these concepts by Monday 13th December 2021 and this will certainly not be a normal verbiage, will abide the legal values which would make it my own IP abiding at least the basic rules of the IP enforcement.

Thanks for all the support I am getting. This initiative I am doing is not driven by money and more of giving back to the society for what it has given me. Please spare me from things which actually isn’t a matter of concern.

Lame Talks on Industry 5.0 by LKN

I will be covering certain aspects of my professional experience, the differences that values can make in our lives and also for the bigger good of the humanity. I am also researching for my second book which is in progress on the industrial revolution so I will be covering couple of aspects of my findings.

To Start with I will be talking about:

  1. A Short Story from my past with a learning
  2. The Current Leadership Aspects
  3. Couple of Wrong Innovations and 
  4. The Conclusions of the Thought Process I am having

A Decade back I was working part of a IT Service Desk or More of an Helpdesk. As days passed I had more time in hand which I used dedicate to share motivational posts on Facebook the number of posts increased as the Job I had at hand become a Childs play, I know all the resolutions and my AHT wasn’t more then 4 minutes. Now I was most luckiest as I was indirectly reporting to Ex-US Army Veterans who had transitioned to IT Roles; They observed my activities, One Day one of the leaders pulled me on a call and was trying his best to communicate in the language I understood – He stated “Just because you can do, doesn’t mean you have too”

There is a lot of meaning in it, I might have understood at that time or I might not, Pretty much don’t remember however I did transition from that mindset to doing something more productive as I grew.

It has a lot of content in that one statement and I would conclude at the end on the reason to bring this topic in this podcast.

The Current Leadership aspects

You call me old school or whatever, My Upbringing has always have had a bigger picture created for the term leadership. I get to imagine the most ideal leadership that can be when I think about the aspects of the Leader – The Virtue of leading is more complicated, self sacrificing and fighting for the bigger good of the humanity is what I imagine. I so want to see a leader whom we can imagine to be “PERFECT” in all senses. Back to the real world from my fantasies.

What has happened to the Current Leadership, I mean the Money, Greed, Power and Favours seems to have corrupted the human mind, so much so that they have become the only drivers of Business. I agree Money is an aspect we all need however there is a Bigger Good expected from the Leaders driving it. I am referring to all those leaders who are in the decision making space I mean the real question is “Are they really keeping the Humans and Humanity at the Top of their Priorities?” We can go on and on – There are loads of books written and loads of quotes materials and podcasts being circulated with little or no use – I will conclude at the end on the reason to bring leadership as a subject on this podcast 

Innovations – Whoa, We have been doing quite a lot of innovations right, I mean isn’t the Corona Virus an apt example of an innovation? This is exactly I start Questioning the Leadership who makes decisions be it political or at the corporate – The Leaders have a heightened responsibility on what they approve and support along with the funding part. Have we gone nuts? Is the Greed for Power, Money, and the others contaminated our minds – Where is the bigger good for humanity here? Also While researching for my Second Book on Industrial Revolution – The Dusk where I man covering about Industry 5.0 I stumbled upon a research paper where AI Reproduction has been successfully attempted! I mean are we nuts? We all know AI is powerful and better than Humans and Even Elon Musk has admitted it in several talks on AI on how powerful AI is, How it can impact the Humans – He did quote that the Entire World Population can be fit in One Floor in New York – That’s how tiny we are and an attempt by AI to terminate us or even a natural event isn’t of a greater event as we are a minute part of the nature. 

These type of irresponsible innovations can increase as we proceed. This is were I would like to use the Earlier Quote – “Just because we can do, doesn’t mean we have to”

So now Why Bring the Leadership and Innovations as a part of this Podcast? Because The Leadership that we will have will direct these innovations and what we innovate will frame the future.

I would like to give a Glimpse of what my thought process is for the Second Book: “The Odyssey of Industrial Revolution – The Dusk” This book will be covering several traits of Industry 5.0 that would make to break it – and the Most Important aspects of Industry 5.0 are the Leadership and the Innovations that we make. Do note that the direction of innovation is completely dependent on the Leadership along with the direction what we get from them – Few Wrong Leaders is suffice to make things worse for an entire generation of humans!

I kind of like Elon not because he is richest, may be I am able to get exposure to his thought process because he is rich and famous that might be a different story altogether but – He does have valid points and its time we do something that really matters to humanity or at least not attempt those things which has a negative impact on humanity!
