  1. what is industry 4.0?
    1. an effort to develop and implement technology by more talking and less working
    2. an overhyped terms used by business people to sell technology to society market

  2. In turns of job skills what would be the way to go? IT obviously? Autonomy could be implemented and replace so many jobs i wonder how many companies and corps will choose this route and at what speed

  3. Ultimately thats exactly what we are striving for, all it takes is for the industry leaders to come together and build on platforms that are open now for these foundations to be built.

  4. The World Economic Forum is a membership organization. Members comprise 1,000 of the world’s top corporations, global enterprises usually with more than US$5 billion in turnover. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is driven to maintain the wealth of shareholders of said corporations. Profit from consumables is limited. Integrated technologies will significantly reduce business expenditure and increase profit from lifestyle, health and well-being services targeting collectives.

  6. Did anybody notice- The previous 3 industrial revolutions had approximately 100 years of difference in between them. And the fourth IR is just approx. 35 years after the third revolution. Wondering whether the fifth industrial revolution would be coming faster than one could think……..
