Industry 4.0 is the watchword of this publication. It’s about revving up our engine and pressing forward into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, towards reaching national goals and beyond. It’s about readjusting our bearing for more challenging roads and byways ahead. It’s about getting acclimated to a new position contiguous to industry and economic growth machineries. It’s about braving new frontiers and exploring fresh opportunities.
It’s also about welcoming new machines, methods and materials; intelligence that are non-human, ledgers that are impossible to defraud, medical devices that don’t sport a dreadful look, and services driven by data rather than subjective opinions.
It’s about delivering safer building premises, streets, and cities; reinventing the processes of business, social and creative endeavours. It’s about creating – and communicating and working with things of the future. It’s about collaboration, knowledge sharing and working together for a better nation.
