The Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) is the progressive automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial processes using modern intelligent technologies. Large-scale machine-tomachine communication (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will be integrated to increase automation, improve communication, monitor production itself, and develop intelligent machines that can analyze and diagnose problems without the need for human intervention. The phrase “Fourth Industrial Revolution” was introduced by a team of scientists who developed a high-tech strategy for the German government.
The Fourth Industrial brings a world of opportunities for organizations of all sizes to adopt technologies not only to survive, but thrive. This will fundamentally transform the global system of labor production, forcing job-seekers to develop new skills needed to adapt to automation. New technologies will make assets more durable and resilient, and data analysis will change the way they are managed. Physical products and services are enhanced by digital skills, thereby increasing their value. Consumers and businesses will be the customers at the epicenter of the economy, improving the way customers are served. Although big data is unrivalled in value and has propelled the industry 40% faster than any other emerging technology, its distributed structure presents a number of challenges. Security, data protection, access control and data storage.
As Cyber Security increasingly becomes part of the Socio Cyber fabric, the need of a 360-degree view in terms of Mental Health is now a social imperative. What does this mean in the real world, where we all live, work and play?
