With increasingly connected networks and advancement of technologies, the 21st Century has brought about the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0). Unlike previous industrial revolutions, success in Industry 4.0 requires more than speed, automation and cost reductions. Continuous learning and innovations are paramount; data, knowledge, cloud computing and human skills have so far emerged as the principal elements underpinning business’s success in an Industry 4.0 world. The reason, role of each of these elements, how together they stimulate innovations with applications and more will be shared at the talk.
