Address: Presidium, Adolf-Würth-Building, Engelbert-Arnold-Str. 2, 76131 Karlsruhe

 

The time we live in has become a time of radical changes affecting the scientific, social, economic and other fields of life. The 4th revolution differs in scope and complexity of the implemented changes from all previous ones. Our time is a transitional period: the 4th revolution has not come yet, but the innovations of the third are already out of date. When will the 4th industrial revolution take place? What changes do we need to prepare for? How drones, automation and robots will be able to replace humans? What projects of the future already exist in the world? What impact does it have on energy?

 

  • Are we expecting a revolution, or already living in it?

  • Benefit or damage

  • Pitfalls hindering the development of the industry
