The next industrial revolution is happening all around us, transforming the way we make things and what our products can do. Three forces are converging to shape this transformation: 1) The meshing of the physical and digital worlds through the Industrial Internet. 2) The emergence of new design and production techniques and new materials in manufacturing. 3) The shifting role that human beings are playing in the production process. Machines, data, and people are increasingly connecting for better, faster, safer, and more reliable performance. In this series, I and others explore what the digital transformation of industry means for growth, for competitiveness, and for employment. This is the future of work.
