Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing?

Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing? | Modern Manufacturing Technology | Scoop.it

If you live in Germany, the term Industry 4.0 (or rather Industrie 4.0) will be familiar to you. Elsewhere, Industry 4.0 is likely to be something that you vaguely recognise. Its exact definition is open to debate; many writers and commentators are not in agreement, but, to a large extent, defining it is irrelevant to what is actually happening.

Murry Shohat's insight:

Dominated by digital data, manufacturing's current evolution is moving at the speed of a revolution. Here's an interesting article centered on the chip-making industry, whose output acts like legos to build the tech base of the revolution.
