If you purchase Amazon Alexa or start using intelligent devices for your house such as Phillips Hue, you begin the journey of turning your dwelling place into a Smart Home.
These solutions will progressively learn from your interaction and generate data that will make them even “smarter.” They will also feed other devices and systems with your data, so they too can learn from your activity and that of other users.
Technology has driven us to an era where the physical and digital worlds are finally connecting in a smart way.
Rarely had you seen different stakeholders such as sensor manufacturers, crypto traders and machine learning programmers come together under the same roof, sharing the same vision and showing a real disposition to collaborate.
A new industrial revolution is taking place. The fourth one, in case you wondered how many others came and went under our noses.
Industrial Revolution 4.0 is not one thing. It is more of a combination of technologies and processes aiming for more efficient, transparent and decentralised production.
This is the key word to understand 4.0: decentralisation.
