Published: Tue Nov 12 2019

Indus Business Academy (IBA), in association with Higher Education Forum (HEF) is organizing a round table conference on the theme "Educational Philosophy & Strategy to Meet the Needs of Industry 4.0" on 17th January, 2020 at the IBA, Bangalore campus from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Conference Overview
Industry 4.0 refers to a new phase in the Industrial Revolution that focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. As per Wikipedia, industry 4.0 describes the trend towards automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies and processes which include Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), the Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing, cognitive computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Such changes have implications for society and business organization as new business models are emerging. This is leading to a new disruption as new skills and new attitudes are needed to respond to Industry 4.0 requirements. What was relevant yesterday is not applicable today; hence, the need to evolve new strategies to deal with the challenges thrown up by Industry 4.0.

In this context the Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) are facing new challenges. Since the skills and competencies of Industry 4.0 are not yet available in educational institutions, institutions are losing their relevance. No doubt, the educational institutions are expected to create men and women with character; but they are also equally vested with the responsibility of creating men and women who can shoulder responsibilities of In Industry 4.0 in whatever positions they are in. Higher Educational Institutions have to evolve new educational philosophy and new strategies to respond to changes resulting from arrival of Industry 4.0.

The conference will look into specifically the role of the higher educational institutions to create the leaders and managers who would be able to shoulder responsibilities in the Industry 4.0 era. It will also discuss various strategies and processes the HEIs should adopt to remain relevant in this fast changing world.

This conference is in the form of a Round Table, hence no. of participants is restricted to 25

There is no registration fee, however prior registration is mandatory before Dec. 25, 2019
