Industry 4.0: a review of key trends and technologies

We've come a long way
since the days IoT
looked like this ...
Here's a reminder that Aistemos is running a timely webinar this coming Wednesday, 30 November, with the title "Examining Industry 4.0 through the lens of patents". As we explained in an earlier blogpost, the term "Industry 4.0" refers to
"the increasingly connected, automated, computerised industrial revolution ... which is used to describe anything from smart refrigeration to industrial automation".
This webinar is going to take an in-depth look at different characteristics across the key relevant technology areas, emphasising that "Industry 4.0" (also sometimes called "Industrial IoT”) consists of independent and very diverse technologies that have come together to form the fourth industrial revolution -- each of which has its own specific characteristics but which must be taken together in order to integrate and synthesize Industry 4.0 functionality.

Cloud Computing:
is there an Industry 4.0
silver lining?
Will this fourth industrial revolution become the next IP battleground? Are there clear leaders already? What will the implications be for IP strategies -- in terms of risk mitigation and value creation? These questions and others will be addressed when we discuss the outlook for industry 4.0 as it impacts Robotics, RFID, Cloud Computing, 3D Printing and Sensors. We also consider the countries that are taking the lead in driving Industry 4.0 growth: China, USA, Korea, Japan and Germany.

Further details of this webinar, and what to do if you want to know more about the subject but can't join in on Wednesday, can be found by clicking here.
