The current era is amid a significant transformation regarding the way products are produced thanks to the automation and digitization of manufacturing. From the first industrial revolution (mechanized production through steam engines) to the mass production and assembly lines using electricity in the second and computers and automation adopted in the third, the Industry 4.0 will further enhance our lives through technologies including smart connectivity, cloud computing, big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence. The society of Industry 4.0 is a world where intelligent robot arms will potentially be used in every aspect of our lives, including education, industry, business and daily life. Every revolution in Industry will result in the revolution of Education.
But unfortunately, education seems to still lag behind and not nurture the kind of talents capable of solving the real and practical problems the industry is facing or will potentially deal with. The challenge in the future could not be the lack of employment, but the shortage of skilled talents that the new jobs will demand. It’s time for education to keep up with the speed of technology development and take the responsibility to lay a solid foundation for tomorrow's workforce needed in Industry 4.0 and AI era, which is exactly the mission DOBOT is destined to carry on.
