What is industry of the future? What technologies and challenges does it involve? Regional representative of FESTO Didactic RUSSIA Vladimir Grebnev answered these questions as part of the International Summer Campus.

The speaker arranged his presentation as an interactive game. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is a predictable event, a wide introduction of cyber-physical systems in industrial production and servicing human needs, including life, work and leisure. The changes, the expert said, will span all aspects of life, including the labor market, the living environment, political systems, the technological paradigm, human identity and others. Today, many developed countries are active participants in the fourth industrial revolution. Special state programs are being created around the world to remove any barriers to Industry 4.0 development; business associations and non-profit organizations are working on it as well.

In their effort to maximize profits, many states and organizations risk underestimating the possible social consequences of the new wave of progress, Vladimir Grebnev said. People need to find new ways of applying technology for their own development and for society as a whole. “The students asked the right questions. But it is important what they actually understand and remember, and that think about it, talk, discuss, and maybe search for more information on the Internet,” Vladimir Grebnev said after the session.
