Forbes: "The Fourth Industrial Revolution

describes the exponential changes to the way we live, work and relate to one another due to the adoption of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Systems. As we implement smart technologies in our factories and workplaces, connected machines will interact, visualise the entire production chain and make decisions autonomously", "... in some ways it's an extension of the computerisation of the 3rd Industrial Revolution (Digital Revolution)".

The agenda for the evening is to recap the previously publicised views and visions of offshore operators for subsea operations in 2025 and beyond. There will be some thought-provoking presentations from manufacturers and service providers on the art of the possible today. The evening will conclude with a panel discussion on the achievability of these visions of the future, the challenges remaining and the opportunities for everyone required to achieve these visions.
