For our modern world, computing is as essential as the air we breathe. But a long evolutionary improvement process needs to undergo disruptive changes.
Manufacturing is facing major changes - not just since Industry 4.0. At the same time new opportunities are opening up faster and faster through emerging tech.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is really nothing new. The field of AI research was founded in 1956. To date, this field has been always covered with huge expectations. Phases of a hypes alternated with AI winters. Surely we are in such a hype phase but Google CEO Sundar Pichai is also right, when he says AI is bigger than the invention of fire and electricity.
Autonomous Cars are a big thing. They are the best example of a revolution, which is hitting us at full speed: The new decentralization wave, also known as Edge Computing. Nowadays automobile manufacturers are ridiculed as old economy by the tech scene (a.k.a the new economy). However, the ongoing revolution clearly plays into the hands of the old economy.
