Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth industrial revolution, or the industrial internet, promises to create a major change, not only in how we manufacture things, but in how we all live, work, and interact. But without information, the Internet of Things is just a collection of things, and Artificial Intelligence remains just artificial. For this fourth industrial revolution to succeed in helping to make a better world, we need information designed into products from the ground up. How that changes information design, and what we, as information specialists, need to be thinking about as we go forward into this new world, is the subject of this webinar.
