Ambitious plans are underway to create the Industrial Internet, but as this O'Reilly report explains, the attempt to marry the Internet with the world's industrial platforms faces significant challenges that resist easy solutions. This cyber-physical coupling is like trying to engineer a complex new life form, using pre-existing parts that weren't designed to work together.
But there is progress. Author Mike Barlow explores how groups such as the Industrial Internet Consortium and the Global City Teams Challenge are working to create a firm structure for the Industrial Internet that includes rules and principles, rather than repeating the serendipitous nature of the Internet.
The Industrial Internet isn't just another tech fad. It's the beginning of a new chapter in human history. Will it advance the dream of universal prosperity, or quickly mutate into a chaotic and dangerous "Internet of unsafe things?" Pick up this free report and learn how industrial groups are working to make this dream come true.
