Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes Cyber-Physical Systems, The Internet Of Things (IoT), 3D Design & Printing, Smart Connected Sensors, Big Data & Analytics, Robotics, Cloud Computing and Cognitive Computing or Artificial Intelligence (the theory and development of computer systems which are able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.). Industry 4.0 creates what has been called a "smart factory" which is termed as the future of the industry. It is also observed that the above technologies related to Industry 4.0 are also being used in several sectors to effectively increase the productivity and decrease costs. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been identified as the key enabler for the next generation of smart (Manufacturing, Cities, Healthcare, Transportation, Education, Legal, Agriculture,…) . The Industrial Revolution 4.0 and associated technologies will drastically change the existing processes all over the world setting a New World Order and predictions are that upto 90% of today’s businesses will become obsolete in next 10 years.
Several companies are already working on Industry 4.0 or Automation or Smart Systems using AI in India. We have several companies offering RFID/IoT & Smart Sensor based Solutions for different sectors in India. We have Expert AI systems like IBM’s Watson etc providing Expert Medical & Legal guidance with Natural Language Interfaces replacing need for Expert Doctors & Lawyers to a great extent. We are already using Smart Taxi Services like Uber & OLA which are smart software programs with location based tracking systems using GPS etc!! We have intelligent assistants like SIRI already in use. Driverless Cars, Buses & Aeroplanes are soon to be a reality which are all based on Industry 4.0 related technologies namely
- Broadband Networked Computer Systems
- Big Data & Analytics
- Smart Sensors & Interfaces
- 3D Design & Printing
- Cloud Computing
