1st Industrial Revolution – Steam
- steam power and mechanization of production.
2nd Industrial Revolution – Electricity
- discovery of electricity and assembly line production.
3rd Industrial Revolution – Automation
- partial automation using memory-programmable controls and computers.
4th Industrial Revolution – Artificial Intelligence
- Now we are on the Fourth Industrial Revolution by the application of information AI to made near autonomous production.
Now here it come real future:
5th Industrial Revolution – Organic-like area creation
Free of sharp edges, organic, autonomous production, reformable products. Industrial processes will be out of today’s perception – Key points:
- A completely new way of production and material processing. 3D printing like but without l adding layer by layer more like area creation using electromagnetic/sonic waves.
- Another way could be galvanic metalizing materials, which will be formed previously by sonic waves.
- Organic–like products with fuzzy logic topology optimization. That will eliminate sharp edges, straight angles, which are weak points of any construction.
- Near autonomous design – we will just put to system purses boundaries for products. All designs will be optimized to reach the previously fixed goal. Example: I need a plane to travel to the top of Mount Everest for four people – so the system will design a kind of helicopter, durable and comfortable enough to take four people to the top of Mount Everest.
- Reformable and adjustable and extremely easy to recycle products
6 th Industrial Revolution – E =mc2 cakewalk
- Transforming atoms or matter into destination material – E.g., from coal, iron atoms or even photons, we will create titanium spoons, spacecrafts, houses etc.
- Materializing products just from specific atoms
- For all of this we will need much better energy source to easily deal with E =mc2
7 th Industrial Revolution – Time and space cakewalk
- Out of space, time, and the material world which we know. It is dangerous area a little close to the God’s area;
