Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology in Industry Reveal Goes Virtual
Industry 4.0 in Focus: A Livestream Series

Automation Alley’s Technology in Industry Reveal is going virtual for 2020! Join us this summer, beginning July 13, as we debut Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology in Industry Report, titled Industry 4.0 in Focus, and launch a livestream series featuring Automation Alley Executive Director and CEO Tom Kelly and the report’s key contributors from industry and academia as they break down the report’s emerging technology trends, case studies and action items for industry.

As we enter a new decade, the opportunities associated with Industry 4.0 are enormous. 5G technology will unlock the bandwidth to make Industry 4.0 truly possible, collaborative robots will become more agile and configurable and artificial intelligence will continue to become more sophisticated. While these rapid technological advancements provide manufacturers with great opportunities for growth, 2020 is also a time of profound uncertainty for business leaders and the global workforce as we face new challenges around the enormous amounts of data we are collecting, disruptive and sophisticated cyber threats and the impact and fallout of coronavirus, the worst pandemic of our lifetimes.

Join us as we address these most pressing challenges—as well as the greatest opportunities—impacting the business world today. How should companies prepare in 2020 and beyond for the digital transformation and position themselves for long-term strategic success?

Episode 10: How Industry 4.0 Transforms Data Regulation & Protection

“More than ever, our adversaries’ targets are our nation’s core economic assets—our information and ideas, our innovation, our research and development, our technology.” – Christopher Wray, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation

Industry 4.0 has created massive amounts of data never before envisioned, providing real-time intelligence that changes the way companies operate around the globe. Today, data analysis allows manufactures to predict machine failure and downtime, optimize their supply chain, detect product deficiencies, boost quality and efficiency, lower costs and gain valuable insights into customer behavior. However, these Big Data benefits also pose massive challenges for manufacturers as they face critical issues surrounding security, privacy and regulations.

On this episode of Industry 4.0 in focus, we discuss how Industry 4.0 transforms data regulation and protection in the manufacturing sector; how these smart technologies will impact people, processes and technology now and in the future; and steps manufacturers can take to ensure they are leveraging their data in a safe and compliant manner.
