Plenary / Panel
english language

Not only do electronic devices, machines and power grids increasingly develop into intelligent systems; they also build very complex cyber-physical systems via IT networks, e.g. the internet cloud. What can these systems offer in the era of Industry 4.0, how are they built, who controls them and for what purposes should they better not be used?
