Did you know that the world economy and humanity is at the verge of one of the most transformational periods in history of mankind?
Have you heard about the ‘Industrial Revolutions’; which from time to time transformed the course of humanity? The first industrial revolution was powered by mechanization, water power and steam power. The second industrial revolution was powered by the mass production of products such as the famous Henry Ford’s Model-T car, assembly lines and electricity. The third industrial revolution was powered by computerization and automation.
Now, we are at the 4th industrial revolution, known as ‘Industry 4.0’ will be powered by Cyber Physical Systems, Blockchain Technology, Cognitive Computing, Automation, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics is set to unleash the next wave of disruption at an unprecedented scale and force!
