It is called AER – Automated Emissions Reduction, a potential promising technology; deployed in residential loads, it has the ability to reduce carbon emissions. It moves consumption allowing customers to reduce the environmental impact of their energy use, and it has several advantages: More loads Better data More variable supply Aggregated impacts In these times,
Many associate the fourth industrial revolution with further expenditure – instalment of new sensors to collect data, investment in data storage or perhaps in 3D printing equipment – rather than cost savings. Fortunately, the reality doesn’t always need not be this expensive. In fact, manufacturers are the ones most capable of achieving tangible value in
It is now well-established that the economics of cloud computing services add massive value to the business, a contention supported both by research and by the number of organisations that either have moved or are now moving production systems into the cloud. Challenges remain of course, and among them is automation. Cloudy challenges Cloud certainly
Contrary to what was decided by the European Parliament, Bill Gates says that robots, that steal human jobs should pay taxes. “Certainly there will be taxes that relate to automation.
