Elementary school children learn about the industrial revolution. If you last heard about it right there, you may be surprised that we live in an era of the fourth industrial revolution. This means a closer connection between the digital and the real world, which will lead to full automation of the production of many products. Technologies using artificial intelligence and robots will soon be tested in Brno – a “sandbox” is being created in the CEITEC BUT research centre for developers in the so-called Industry 4.0 for approximately 450 million crowns. Pavel Václavek, the coordinator of the research program focused on technical cybernetics, will reveal more about him.
