ABSTRACT

The world is now facing an era of the fourth industrial revolution, resulting from the development and convergence of intelligence information technology and science and technology in various fields such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing and Internet of Things technology. The revolutionary development process that mankind has experienced has been achieved by playing a leading role, but the fourth industrial revolution that we are beginning to experience is an essential difference in that machines that are designed by humans and represented by artificial intelligence and others are responsible for implementation. The fourth industrial revolution features the possibility of universal and free communication based on the development of information and communication and the convergence of various individually developed technologies. As a result, the time has arrived for momentary generalization rather than gradual expansion, and the rate of propagation of new technologies or objects in this process has reached an unobservable level by the past standards. Such characteristics can cause problems that could not be actively dealt with at the existing regulatory level or the regulatory speed, so legal provisions are needed to induce technological development without suppressing the industrial revolution for the realization of public interest. Based on this sense of problem, this paper aims to review the new concepts that should be reviewed in the area of the public law in the fourth industrial revolution period, and to review the relevant legislative situation and raise the implications of the research direction.
