Technology as an experiment

The use of large-scale technology is always an experiment, even if no one admits it. Because the complexity of such techniques is so high that all possible failures can never be anticipated. Thus, the society becomes a laboratory: for example, Big Data, the Internet of Things or even large automobile factories and power plants are introduced without knowing all consequences. So, why not design the implementation of a new technology in such a way that the findings during its operation satisfy the criteria of an scientific experiment and therefore can be used to improve the machines.

Industry 4.0 Congress in Munich in October 2014

MT_Logo_Symp_AntriebeA congress on Industry 4.0. will be held in Munich at 14 to 15 Oct. in Munich (Hotel Kempinski at the airport). It is organized by Markt&Technik.

The principles of Industry 4.0 are already known in the professional world, and many of the techniques exist. The main point of the congress is to bring together the different approaches, because only with an integration of all participating companies, machinery, software and people, the new mode of production can be successfully introduced into the factories.

A second focus is laid on the concrete projects. Although Industry 4.0 right now is still at an early stage, there are already first applications that are used in manufacturing.

Software for the Internet of Things

InternetDerDinge_01The Internet of Things is one of the main trends in 2014, which means that it is also a hot topic for X-info. This term refers to the fact that more and more objects (things) are network-compatible and connected to the Internet.

Such objects are living creatures or machines (technical objects) that exchange data over a network. Living creatures are, for example, people who use Google Glass or are equipped with a networked pacemaker, or animals on a farm which carry an implanted transponder. An example of networked technical objects are sensors in cars that use GPS information for communicating the most favorable setting for the suspension system almost in real time. (more…)

Big Data – No one listens to us

Concerning Big Data, it is completely understandable to be afraid of the actions of intelligence agencies and police. But in reality, the government is not interested in us, at least not as a person. Rather, it is interested in the metadata, i.e. the data about data. And with that, something much more dangerous comes into the focus: the usage of Big Data as a basis for public management.

If you want to know more, look at netzwertig.com. We have published an article there that deals with the issue (in German).
