Neural Innovation – Innovation

There are always di‑erent trend topics in business. Each age has their own “zeitgeist” and innovative forces which create the trends of that specific age. Nowadays we hear more about “Industry 4.0” as a trend. The name implies that industry followed a path by increasing complexity about the technologies used in industry, through steam power and mechanization (Industry 1.0 – 1800’s) to electrification and assembly lines (Industry 2.0 – 1900’s) to PLC and automation (Industry 3.0 – 1960’s) and cyber-physical systems and networking (Industry 4.0 – today). Each path is driven by the innovations of their age. Then, what will be the innovations to drive “Industry 5.0”? The answer might be in our brains, literally “our brains”.
