#8: Digital Transformation
This episode deals with the concept of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”, or 4IR. Prof Barry believes that the problem with the term 4IR is that it lacks a clear definition. In setting out his own definition he describes four “Design Principles” that lie at the heart of Germany’s Industrie 4.0 initiative. He and Kerryn discuss each of these principles. He then relates them to “evolutionary” and “revolutionary” digital transformation.
