In 1965, the American engineer Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors per silicon chip would double every year. This observation, called Moore’s law, underpinned long-term planning strategies and shaped our ideas of the future for several decades. Since 2012 the pace of advancement was declining steadily, and in 2017 Intel stated the era of Moore’s law is over and it is hyperscaling that would be able to continue the trend and offset the increased cadence by aggressively scaling beyond the typical doubling of transistors.

Apart from the evident slowing-down of the rate of change, we see new technologies and innovation bubble — just think of the infamous Theranos project. We see that the revered self-driving cars, virtual reality and even AI itself are still in their infantry and will remain there for years. We hear a lot about the 4th Industrial Revolution. So is the world changing or is it just a fantasy?

But first of all…

…What is the 4th Industrial Revolution?

It is usually referred to as an environment in which disruptive technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing our lives and business. The author The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Founder and Executive Chairman …
