Industrial revolution in China - Africa, from the steam engine to AI

Industrial revolution – from the steam engine to artificial intelligence

The Third Industrial Revolution began about in the late 20th century – roughly in the 1960s – and is hallmarked by electronics, information technology and the automatization of production.

By now, there is a Fourth Industrial Revolution we can talk about, which is building upon the digital revolution of the third one, but forms a distinct, new era, due to the velocity and scope of technological advancement and its impact exerted on sytems.

The FIR is characterised by the fusion of various technologies, blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres, which, apart from the transformation of different disciplines, the economy and the industry, also raises the question as to what it means to be human. 

How Africa can lead the way in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

This innovative and entrepreneurial drive is key to Africa’s future success – and clearly exponential technologies can accelerate that success. Yes, there are many obstacles to overcome in Africa. But for an economy to leapfrog to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, turning those disadvantages and deficiencies into opportunities is the first step. 

China and re-globalisation: Strategies for Africa

Initially, the BRI was conceived as a development strategy focusing on connectivity and co-operation between Eurasian countries, primarily China, the land-based silk road economic belt (SREB) and the ocean-going maritime silk road (MSR). The BRI has now been expanded to become China’s grand strategy to the world, including Africa. The Chinese motive is to enhance regional and global trade-and-investment connectivity in pursuit of re-globalisation. The BRI enables China to take a more significant role in global affairs with a China-centred commercial, investment, infrastructure and trading global footprint.

How new Silk Road will cement China as major trading partner for Africa 

The Belt and Road Initiative will connect at least 65 countries, most of them developing economies. The routes will cover 63% of the world’s population and 29% of global GDP.

Chinese President Xi Jinping reiterated his commitment to the project during the 10th BRICS Summit held in South Africa in late July 2018. He said it would “create new opportunities of social and economic development for participating countries.”

Some projects which are already underway, particularly in Africa, offer insights into how the initiative might unfold and what its benefits and pitfalls could be. These projects also suggest that China has learned from previous infrastructure investments on the continent some decades ago.

The 4th Industrial Revolution in Africa – Opportunities and Challenges

Since the 18th century, industrial revolutions have fundamentally changed the economy, mankind’s relationship with nature, and everyday life. This process still lasts today, but now we can talk about the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Although technological achievements made throughout the centuries are regarded by most people as the means and signs of development, the complex process called the industrial revolution and the accompanying technical advancement also have their downsides. In our study composed of several parts, we explore the latest stage of the industrial revolution from Africa’s perspective, and we seek answers to the question as to what risks and opportunities it holds for the Black Continent.

The Route to Smart Warehousing — and Why IoT Matters

Meeting ever-shifting customer expectations is the only way to succeed in the digital era

According to Zebra Technologies, 52 percent of warehouse executives plan to increase technology investments in the near future, in order to streamline goods delivery and achieve supply-chain transparency. Main expenditures will include a migration to modern warehouse management systems (WMS), implementation of real-time inventory tracking solutions and barcode scanners, and internet of things (IoT) devices such as wearables, drones and robotic packaging equipment.

The IoT — a network of devices which “converse” with each other, collect data using sensors, and pass it to cloud and on-premises servers for further analysis — is widely viewed as the cornerstone of the Warehouse 4.0 concept.
