4th industrial revolution on the energy sector

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 25 aprile 2019

The fourth industrial revolution or as it is also called “Industry 4.0” is an era of innovation characterized by the transition to automated digital production, managed by intelligent systems in real time. The new type of industrial production is based on such technologies as big data, automation, blockchain, Internet of things, artificial intelligence, smart grids. It is obvious that the coming industrial reality will have a significant impact on all spheres of life. Experts of the VIII Global Energy Prize Summit`s round table devoted to the fourth industrial revolution, considered the impact of “Industry 4.0” on the energy sector, assessed the benefits of technological innovations and possible risks.
Despite the possible risks, many countries are introducing new technologies as a platform for future energy systems. In particular, in the chain of production, transportation, distribution, storage and consumption of energy. There are technologies that allow you to control energy processes from beginning to end. For example, according to Sauro Pasini, the Global Energy Prize expert, President of the International Flame Research Foundation, artificial intelligence and big data help predict the operation of the service networks, and to reduce downtime. In addition, continuous real-time data flows make it possible to create a digital version of any product or process, allowing manufacturers to predict results more accurately, identify problems more quickly and create quality products. Artificial intelligence makes an independent decision about what action to take upon detection of a failure. According to Sauro Pasini, the connection of the virtual and physical world will solve the problems before they arise. The expert gave an example of the technology of modeling the “digital twin” power plant with the parameters and data of the real installation. This simulation makes it possible to eliminate possible errors and track key performance indicators. He also noted that the fourth industrial revolution is not enough to consider only from a technological point of view. The formation of a new working class 4.0 with the skills and personal qualities necessary to work in an intelligent factory will be crucial. Only in this way it will be possible to properly implement the new realities of the industrial revolution and make technological advances available to companies and the entire civilization. It is also important to address the political norms and legal constraints of the new reality. Who will be responsible for the errors of the machine running on artificial intelligence.
The idea of the decisive role of political support for the new industrial revolution was supported by Dominique Fache, Member of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, Member of the Board of Directors of Technopark Sofia-Antipolis, Chairman of the RTF Board of Directors. In his view, technological change would be feasible only if it was backed up by political will. The expert also predicted that in the next 5-10 years there will be revolutionary changes in the energy sector. Energy storage technologies, solar energy and electric vehicles are the areas that will ensure these global transformations.

The Industrial Internet Consortium Announces the Optimizing Manufacturing Processes by Artificial Intelligence Testbed

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 22 giugno 2018

The Industrial Internet Consortium® (IIC), the world’s leading organization transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), today announced the Optimizing Manufacturing Processes by Artificial Intelligence (OMPAI) testbed. The OMPAI testbed is led by IIC members Wanxiang Group and Thingswise and supported by Dell Technologies, Xilinx, China Unicom, and China Academy of Information and Communication Technology (CAICT). It is also the first IIC testbed to leverage The Linux Foundation’s EdgeX Foundry open edge computing framework.The OMPAI testbed explores the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and industrial internet technologies, deployed from the edge to the cloud, to optimize automotive manufacturing processes. It also seeks to create an ecosystem that will foster the exchange of IT/AI/OT domain knowledge and the co-development of smart manufacturing applications. For example, deep learning may be able to improve quality assurance of an automobile part to substantially increase the detection of defects and reduce the need for manual inspection.Vincent Wang, Chief Innovation Officer of Wanxiang Holdings, said, “As a leading multinational corporation in automotive and renewable energy, with factories in Europe, North America and Asia, we believe that an industrial IoT platform will be a key enabler for our digital transformation and global synergy. We are glad to work with technology leaders to validate AI, edge-cloud collaborative computers, and high-speed cellular networks to optimize manufacturing productivity and quality. This is the first step toward an open, inclusive IIoT platform on which we will continue with further testbeds, incorporating new ideas, new data usage models and creating greater value add. We invite worldwide enterprises, innovators and entrepreneurs to enrich the ecosystem together.” IIC testbeds are where the innovation and opportunities of the industrial internet happen. IIC member companies partner to create solutions that are not only connected but also share data. The outcomes from testbeds are the cornerstones of a feedback loop from concept to reality and back to guidance for further innovation.

Preparing Youth for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 31 maggio 2018

Educators teach to the test. They have to. Tests are powerful tools that tell people what they believe is important. What happens when vast amounts of what schools test can be answered in seconds on student’s smartphones? Rising numbers of college graduates are having difficulties finding jobs at the same time as employers complain they cannot find people with skills. In an exclusive new interview with C. M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld, OECD principal Andreas Schleicher reveals that it’s not uncommon to find “a few academics and government officials who determine what millions of students will learn” and these leaders “will often defend the scope and integrity of their discipline.” Schleicher is currently leading over 70 countries in their efforts to design and implement education policies and practices for a new world. “The reason why it is so hard to move school systems is that there is a much larger invisible part under the waterline. This invisible part is about the interests, beliefs, motivations and fears of the people who are involved in education, parents and teachers included.” He adds, “It will be our imagination, our awareness and our sense of responsibility that will enable us to harness the opportunities of the 21st century to shape the world for the better.”
Andreas Schleicher is Director for Education and Skills and Special Advisor on Education Policy to the Secretary-General at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris. He is the author of the newly released book, World Class: How to Build a 21st Century School System.Founded by C. M. Rubin, CMRubinWorld launched in 2010 to explore what kind of education would prepare students to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Its award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, is a celebrated trailblazer in the renaissance of the 21st century, and occupies a special place in the pulse of key issues facing every nation and the collective future of all children. It connects today’s top thought leaders with a diverse global audience of parents, students and educators. Its highly readable platform allows for discourse concerning our highest ideals and the sustainable solutions we must engineer to achieve them. C. M. Rubin has produced over 700 interviews and articles discussing an expansive array of topics under a singular vision: when it comes to the world of children, there is always more work to be done.
