Davos 2016: It's now all about technology, but what actually happened?


Industrie 4.0

The german influence is showing here. Industrie 4.0 is talked about in manufacturing and academic circles. It does not have the same ring in English. I think Siemens and Bosch (both industrial automation companies) have been pushing it. It seems to me that WEF has been a bit of a yawn fest this year.

Perhaps without the protestors it's missing something. Most of the big pressure groups are giving it a rest this year. Public Eye on Davos said goodbye last year with a lifetime "achievement" award for Chevron.
