Conference will explore the potential challenges, opportunities and risks of industrial transformation
What’s on the horizon after Industry 4.0? What are the challenges, opportunities and risks of industrial transformation? The new Industrial Pioneers Summit at Hannover Messe 2019 has been created specifically to answer these questions.
On 2 April, forward thinkers from business, politics and general society will gather together at the Convention Center to discuss tomorrow’s intelligent factories. The discussions will focus on innovative developments and the change processes resulting from them. These will cover augmented reality, the new 5G telephony standard and various transport solutions.
Several industry experts will speak at the event including Klaus Helmrich, member of the Managing Board of Siemens; Christine Bowles, general manager of Industrial Solutions at Intel Corporation; Volkhard Bregulla, vice president of Global Accounts at Hewlett Packard Enterprises; Günther Oettinger, German politician and European Union Commissioner; and Cağlayan Arkan, global lead of Manufacturing and Resources at Microsoft.
"Increased levels of automation open up new types of careers and new sources of reskilled workers,” said Arkan. “This is only the start. We have a significant opportunity ahead of us all."
