Industrial Revolution 4.0
Categories: Emerging Technology
I just completed updating my 2018 ongoing monitoring of a suite of emerging technologies. These emerging technologies are beginning to have a global impact that is likely to be 10 times greater (in $$ value) than the Internet Era of the mid to late 90s when I was at Netscape. The implication of each technology is significant. Everything combined into what is being called "The Industrial Revolution 4.0, the implications are far greater than any other period (industrial age 1 thru 3) of dramatic growth in history. The magnitude of change creates substantial issues and opportunities that will likely challenge all professions! Program and project managers will have to deliver initiatives based on these new technologies without the benefit of direct experience and lessons learned!

This headline is very concerning. It has brought about many discussions on what should happen if true! Did this action expose the worlds systems to increased risks of hacking?
Here is the story that has brought about all the discussion.
The latest figures of the 1,501 cryptocurrencies place the total value at $461,215,429,642 USD. Now that is a proper correction!
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 is now in our rear view mirror. CES began way back in 1967 and that makes this the 51st CES Show. There was so much new and emerging technology was present it is difficult to summarize. That being said the two factors that stick out is the integration of multiple areas of new and emerging technology into new and updated product and service offerings that are designed to benefit the average consumer. I could not help but think about all the programs and projects that were managed to their successful completion to make all that was on display at CES 2018 possible.
