Panel Session
Pavilion F, Conference Hall F1

Big data, automation, artificial intelligence, and in-depth analytics – these terms used to be the prerogative of science fiction but have now become the central elements of predictions about the future economy. It is forecast that the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will add up to USD 3.7 trillion to the global economy, bringing new products and services to the market, and also helping protect the environment. How can the real sector benefit from innovative transformations? What initial successes have already been achieved? What are the main barriers to a breakthrough? What competencies need to be developed, and how can a decision be made to introduce breakthrough organizational and technological models? Which companies are demonstrating notable productivity gains by integrating big data and AI into manufacturing systems?
