Speech Title: Digital Transformation
Abstract: This presentation discusses the profound technological changes that have taken place around us during the last two decades, supported by the new disruptive advances both on the software and the hardware sides, as well as the cross-fertilization of concepts and the amalgamation of information, communication and control technology driven approaches. In recent years, in an attempt to change the whole format of industrial automation, these developments have been taken further, especially in Germany, under the label “Industry 4.0”. The dominant feature of Industry 4.0 is the integration of the virtual world with the physical world through the Internet of Things (IoT). Such engineered systems are named Cyber Physical Systems built from, and depends upon, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components. A more comprehensive description of what is happening around us is the digital transformation. After reviewing these profound changes, the presentation is concluded with a discussion of the integration of AI in digital transformation, in the form of smart manufacturing.
