"How Transformative Technologies Are Revolutionizing Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing"
The 4th Industrial Revolution – Industry 4.0 -- has turned manufacturing from a value chain-based ecosystem to a stakeholder web-based ecosystem, bringing together new technologies and compute services ranging from edge intelligence and artificial intelligence (AI) to Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms and augmented reality (AR). The link to these technology vendors will only grow stronger as they continue to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace, meeting the core needs of the manufacturing sector. How will vendors develop and manufacturers deploy transformative technologies in smart manufacturing during the next 10-plus years? What business units will be impacted by what technologies? How will each of these technologies be applied? Which innovative vendors currently lead the field in these technologies? What should manufacturers and vendors do now to take advantage of these technologies and what are the benefits?
