Shifting from a traditional automotive manufacturing process to advanced automated and digitalized intelligence manufacturing will lay the ground for how automotive companies compete in the future. We ask Hyundai how it all connects.
The new industrial revolution
The Fourth Industrial Revolution has been getting a lot of press. What does it really mean, and how will it affect us?
This issue showcases some of the new opportunities for ISO standards by highlighting the industry sectors most likely to benefit. It gives examples of how some companies are already leveraging this growing market, taking advantage of the emergence of digital systems, networked communications, and large-scale data analysis.
Standards are needed to achieve both efficient data connectivity and effective information flow.

No longer just a fictional theme for far-fetched science fiction movies, artificial intelligence is now very much a day-to-day part of our reality. In factories, in intelligent transportation, even in the medical field, artificial intelligence (AI) is just about everywhere. But what exactly is artificial intelligence? As AI becomes more ubiquitous, why is there a need for International Standards? And what are some of the topics surrounding its standardization?
Technological change is taking place at a dizzying rate, transforming our lives in all manner of ways that are not always obvious. How can we ensure efficient management of these automated systems so disruption is positive and does not become a bewildering maelstrom beyond our control?
New technologies, from robotics to machine learning, are ushering in a period of rapid change and development. While the aviation industry is working to reap the benefits of this industrial automation, standards, especially those of ISO/TC 184/SC 4, will play a key role in ensuring a smooth flight path – but only if they can keep up.
