The Second Industrial Revolution (1870 – 1914) was a period of rapid industrial development, primarily in Britain, Germany and the United States, but also in France, Italy and Japan.
The 3rd industrial revolution began in the 1960s. It is usually called the computer or digital revolution because it was catalyzed by the development of semiconductors, mainframe computing (1960s), personal computing (1970s and ’80s) and the internet (1990s).
