Device design has driven and enabled Industry 4.0, from shrinking the size of sensors and transceivers to enabling the use of different frequencies and lowered power consumption. How will continued advances in device design alter the current revolution in robotics, automation, and the collection and use of data itself? Keynoter Zaheer Ali from NASA’s SOFIA, Co-founder and CEO of AIXIA Global George Szabo, and HP Enterprise’s Distinguished Technologist Chris Cheng gather with moderator John Blyler, Senior Editor at Design News, to discuss the impact devices have on industry and peer into the future to predict where this might lead us.
