About this Session
The term Industry 4.0 has been in circulation for many years now, usually associated with manufacturing this session aims to explore the latest and greatest ideas, yes in manufacturing but other areas too: laboratory, office and life!
According to Wikipedia “The Fourth Industrial Revolution, 4IR, or Industry 4.0, conceptualizes rapid change to technology, industries, and societal patterns and processes in the 21st century due to increasing interconnectivity and smart automation.”
So, what does this mean? What are the technologies behind driving the industrial revolution and how is it already and continuing to impact our working and daily lives? What is the human impact on moving towards increased cyber physical systems? Are we ready? We have an hour to explore!
