Next Industrial Revolution

 

Servicing the Industrial Sector in this digital age has given me a great understanding of how technology can modernize the fabric of our country. The Industrial Revolution allowed us to manufacture goods as small as containers to as big as automobiles. Through automobiles and aerospace advancements, we've improved our ability to transport goods and people. We've leveraged energy to power cars, planes and infrastructure such as air conditioning in homes. 

Over the last century, there have been incremental advances in this industry; however, now through technology, such as API's, augmented intelligence, blockchain, data & analytics, the internet of things and robotic process automation, this infrastructural level of our economy is elevating not only business processes but our lifestyles as individual consumers.

We are more efficiently transporting goods and people through autonomous vehicles and the sharing economy, leveraging alternative sources of energy through renewables and utilizing our assets more effectively through smarter manufacturing. As we have evolved, the job market calls for technical skills to build the platforms and applications and creative minds to process how we will evolve through technology. These skills are not necessarily being taught in schools, leading students to more affordable college alternatives to make them marketable in our new economy. Also, cities may not require as much of a car-centric model and will start to have more options such as car, bike and ride sharing as well as more efficient public transportation. Thus, I am excited to be a builder of the new infrastructure of our world and to see what else will come of this digital transformation.
