TED Tuesdays: The Next Manufacturing Revolution Is Here

TED Tuesdays: The Next Manufacturing Revolution Is Here

Global economic growth has been declining for 50 years, but this discouraging slide may soon be stopped in a surprising way: a new manufacturing revolution.

Historically, times of significant economic expansion have been linked to large manufacturing revolutions - think steam engines, automobiles and high technology. After years of decline in global economic growth, Olivier Scalabre, an industrial systems expert, believes there’s a fourth manufacturing revolution on the horizon that holds the promise of global revitalization by bringing together existing manufacturing with large scale technological innovation.

Watch this fascinating TED Talk, recorded May, 2016 at TED/BCG Paris, to get a fresh perspective on how major technologies are being incorporated into manufacturing arenas and increasing industrial productivity big time - fueling growth and producing smarter, better products.
