The article presents a historical slice of industrial revolutions and examines the changes that occur as a result in various sectors and spheres of public life. Authors argue that Fourth Industrial Revolution is reflected in industrial change and training. However, Industry 4.0, which is part of Fourth Industrial Revolution, provides a number of new technologies that lay the foundations for the formation of virtual-real space for data exchange, testing new quality processes and objects, creating robotic systems in combination with Internet technologies in the format of smart factories, “smart” enterprises, smart cities. Authors expressed the opinion that today there is still an intensified so-called “spread” of cities, the expansion of their territory. The transition from simple to group forms of urban settlement – from the usual “point” city to urban agglomerations – compact territorial groups of urban and rural settlements is especially characteristic of modern urbanization. Authors consider digital vector of transformation of national economy in terms of digitalization of production and the importance of urban processes. The article presents four stages of the industrial revolution and focuses on the features of Fourth Industrial Revolution, as a new industrial breakthrough in which the interaction of new information and communication technologies in production processes, urban management and life. As a result, we note that compliance with the principles of Industry 4.0 will allow the rational use of natural, technical and energy resources, recycling of industrial and household waste, to obtain new products or energy.
