Conference paper Open Access
Smart Systems are today’s drivers of innovation, in all industrial and social areas highly automated or autonomous intelligent systems are taking over tasks and services – and maybe, one day, control of our lives. The keynote will address technologies of the fourth industrial revolution in a holistic manner (e.g. IoT, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Connectivity, robots) enabling disruptive developments (evolutionary or revolutionary), but also discussing ways they could enable towards a creative, innovative and sustainable sharing society. It will focus on a few areas not covered by other topics of this year’s IDIMT, particularly on highly automated systems in transport, smart farming, smart cities and homes, infrastructure, economic systems, and for “inclusion” of elderly or handicapped persons to facilitate longer independent living (“ageing well”). A short critical survey of the Japanese concept of “Society 5.0” will be provided. First approaches of international organizations, e.g. ICT standards organizations, some governments, the European parliament and
the UN, are explained on how society and the technical community may meet the rising awareness and ethical concerns, human factors and the like, besides safety, security and resilience and their interplay.
