Monsoon moves into The Fourth Industrial Revolution. (4IR) is the fourth major industrial era since the initial IR of the 18th century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres, collectively referred to as the cyber-physical system eta. It is marked by emerging technology breakthroughs in a number of fields including Robotics, AI, Quantum Computing, Blockchain and other IOT Applications.
Artificial intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence (AI) describes computers that have a brain like humans — recognizing complex patterns, processing information, drawing conclusions, and making recommendations.
Blockchain is a secure, decentralized, and transparent way of recording and sharing data making it faster and faster for the consumer and the enteprise
Quantum Computing technologies now in development will eventually make computers millions of times more powerful. These computers will have the potential to supercharge AI, create highly complex data models in seconds, and speed up the discovery of new materials and massive data clusters.
Virtual Reality (VR)
Virtual reality (VR) offers immersive digital experiences (using a VR headset) that simulate the real world, while augmented reality merges the digital and physical worlds and the alternate dimension.
Biotechnology is the next generation in bio repair and enhancement, disease prevention, and cell stimulations.
Robotics refers to the design, manufacture, and use of robots for personal and commercial use. While we’re yet to see robot assistants in every home, technological advances have made robots increasingly complex and sophisticated. They are used in fields as wide-ranging as manufacturing, health and safety, and human assistance.
3D printing allows manufacturing businesses to print their own parts, with less tooling, at a lower cost, and faster than via traditional processes. Plus, designs can be customized to ensure a perfect fit.
Innovative materials, including plastics, metals, and biomaterials, promise to easrthquake sectors including manufacturing, renewable energy, construction, and healthcare.
IoT describes the everyday internet. From Sensors to Soil.
Energy capture, storage, and transmission represent a growing market sector, spurred by the falling cost of renewable energy technologies and improvements in battery storage capacity.
