INDUSTRY 4.0: THE REVOLUTION OF THE 21st century
Thanks to the emergence of new technologies, the borders between the physical and digital world merge to give life to a 4.0 factory
“The Fourth Revolution” was the subject of lively discussion during my visit to DAVOS between experts and policy makers.
Still, no one can deny that the new technologies which mix the physical, digital, digital worlds, drones etc, will upset our society in its foundations.
The impact on the field of raw materials and energy:
Responding to the desires of consumers will contribute to the price increase which passes through the intelligent use of the various resources required by the industry
The impact on consumers:
When we increase the number of varieties we diversify the consumer basket at a lower cost and we give it full satisfaction
The new varieties will even be personalized
The impact on the medical sector:
The sector will be equipped with more and more robots that will be able to perform surgeries, play the role of nurses in a virtual way and even recognize symptoms of diseases.
The impact on the judicial sector:
Courts will benefit from a robot that can also play the role of a judge or an arbitrator, artificial intelligence will replace the discretionary power of a judge with a robot that will apply the law without fail
The impact on the agricultural sector:
The agricultural sector will benefit from intelligence through the use of drones to monitor the land.
It requires investments in scientific research in universities and in the laboratories of firms that will have to cooperate together by increasing the number of research partners.
However, zero risk does not exist and possible flaws and configuration errors can be exploited.
