The Humanist
of Industry 4.0 Hans-Jürgen Kugler EclipseCON France
5 June 2013 History shows that technological innovations often have more power to change society than politics. The Internet of Things will be such a force for change – essentially abolishing the industries we know today by replacing segmentation with an interconnectivity leading to emergent services of unprecedented levels. Whether this will lead to a renewed and all-inclusive humanism or to a 1984-style control scenario is up to us. Historically the Renaissance in Western Europe towards the end of the 14th century presents a similar watershed with surprisingly similar patterns. And it was a similar combination of technology and community forces that allowed the humanistic ideals of the Renaissance to spread and influence society - until today. It was then – as it is today – the conflict between trust and fear, between shared purpose and the need for control, which determined the direction of development of both society and technology. The recent increase of open technologies and projects has led to a revival of open communities, which embody purpose and trust as foundation. Can open-source organizations be models for successful enterprises in Industry 4.0? We help organizations to develop,
especially those in “traditional industries”,
whose products have been “infected by software.” About Kugler Maag Cie: 90% of innovations are
