Episode Description

The Buzz: “85% of manufacturers consider the ‘connected workforce’…robots and humans working together being routine in manufacturing by 2020…an essential element in their business strategy” (blog.universal-robots.com). While a replicator à la Star Trek is speculative fiction, 3D printing is not, and the 4th Industrial Revolution is happening now. Industry 4.0 started with the concept of an Intelligent Factory. Now it’s about designing and manufacturing intelligent products and assets, and empowering employees to leverage the data to make predictive, prescriptive and automated decisions across the entire supply chain. Then what? Will automation make human employment redundant? Is the ‘Skynet’ scenario the inevitable endpoint for AI? Will cars and refrigerators spy on us or control our behaviors? Bob Parker at IDC and Tom Raftery at SAP share their vision of Industry 4.0 and offer provocative opinions about Industry 5.0 and beyond. Join us for The Future of Industry 4.0, 5.0 and Beyond

Changing the Game with Industry 4.0 in the Intelligent Enterprise

Thursday at 6 AM Pacific Time/9 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Industry 4.0 changes everything. Automation and built-in intelligence make a difference at every step of your business, helping you deliver individualized products and services with the efficiency of mass production.

The digitization of the industrial production environment in factories, plants, and warehouses is driven by technology innovations which appeared in the aftermath of the Internet and cloud revolution: Internet of Things (IoT) connecting devices, machine-to-machine communication, distributed computing, new edge and cloud technologies, times series and big data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence, new mobile user experiences (e.g. augmented or virtual reality) to enable digital workers, autonomous systems and vehicles.

Join host Bonnie D. Graham and renowned experts from around the world as they discuss opportunities, challenges, and benefits of transforming and driving business innovation with Industry 4.0.
