Is the technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 already reached its aopgeum of development or is it just the beginning of this revolution?

The current technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 is motivated by the development of the following factors:
- Big Data database technologies,
- cloud computing,
- machine learning,
- Internet of Things,
- artificial intelligence.
On the basis of the development of the new technological solutions mentioned in recent years, the processes of innovatively organized analyzes of large collections of information collected in Big Data database systems dynamically develop.
What other technological improvements, innovative organizational, technical and IT solutions will be developed in the future based on the development of the above-mentioned factors?
What kinds of innovations will be able to be created in the coming years, in the future based on the integration of the above-mentioned main determinants of the development of the current technological revolution known as Industry 4.0?
What kind of new categories of added value may be created in the future if the above-mentioned technological solutions are more involved in the creation of biotechnological, ecological, product and other innovations.
Will new technologies be created in this way, with the help of which it will be possible to generate solutions to the problems of excessive exploitation of Earth resources in the process of civilization development?
Perhaps new innovative technologies for renewable energy sources and the creation of biodegradable substitutes for many non-degradable materials, e.g. plastics, besides the development of biotechnology and energy innovations, etc. will allow major global problems to be solved.
The development of human civilization in the next few decades should give answers to the above questions.
In view of the above, I am asking you with the following question: Has the technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 already achieved its aopgeum of development or is it just the beginning of this revolution?

Perhaps the biggest issue at the moment lies in the ability of businesses to adopt technology and cope with the profound differences that this can make to their business models and ways of accessing markets. Some of the technologies continue to develop very rapidly, but i'm not clear whether most industrial organisations are able to implement them given the reliance on what we might think of as traditional means of investment justification...this is perhaps where ral change is needed as fundamental enabler.
In terms of the human impact, we are working with many manufacturing businesses to enable access to parallel supply chains that in themselves present opportunities for regenerative use of materials (circular economy), but this its itself often requires fundamental changes in attitudes and behaviours rather than technical innovation to be successful.

Implementation/application of industry 4.0 is in the beginning, although 4.0 innovations are almost being already fully developed...
Examples are the driverless cars or the digital ships etc.

I think not yet . In health sector, so many deadly disease is yet control. So many AI based health control measures is yet to evolve. Cost of medical treatment is gradually increasing. Innovation should be cost saving.........

In which sectors of the economy, in which types of companies and corporations will develop the most dynamic technologies for analyzing large collections of information in Big Data database systems
The Big Data database technology is finding more and more applications in business.
Multi-criteria processing of huge data sets collected in Big Data database systems allows preparing reports in a relatively short time according to given criteria.
The report development time depends mainly on the computing power of Big Data servers.
In processes of complex economic and financial analyzes, risk management, etc. for the purpose of determining the economic and financial situation of business entities, they are increasingly carried out in computerized analytical platforms of the Business Intelligence type.
Perhaps in the future, artificial intelligence will also be involved in this field of analytics.
In some countries, IT companies have been operating for several years, developing the Big Data database technology for commercial and business purposes.
It is only a matter of time to combine these various analytical and database technologies in cloud computing.
In view of the above, the current question is: In which sectors of the economy, in which types of companies and corporations will be the most dynamically developed technologies for analyzing large collections of information in Big Data database systems

Should economics in the 21st century change in a way that would help achieve sustainable economic development?
Question

  • Dariusz ProkopowiczDariusz Prokopowicz
Is it time to change the civilization development strategy globally and focus on sustainable socio-economic development?
Will "ECONOMY" help in this, will "NEW ECONOMY" help in the 21st century?
In the greatest generalization, economics should help reconcile two opposing issues: How to create and deliver through limited markets economic goods, created on the basis of limited resources to meet unlimited human needs. Economics should also help in formulating the answer to the question: what, how and for whom to produce, produce, offer? On the other hand, in the 21st century, the economy should help answer the question: how should domestic and international economies develop in order to achieve sustainable economic development taking into account the issues of ecology, renewable energy sources, increasing the use of secondary raw materials, development of technological innovations, ecological and materials that will enable achieving sustainable development, i.e. such economic development in which the negative effects of this development for the natural environment will be gradually reduced.
This is a very important question in the context of the changing economies of the 21st century, in the context of the current fourth technological revolution, Industry 4.0.
Apparently, we are now living in the era of the fourth technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0.
The previous three technological revolutions:
1. The industrial revolution of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, determined mainly by the industrial application of the invention of a steam engine.
2. Electricity era of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century.
3. The IT revolution of the second half of the twentieth century determined by computerization, the widespread use of the Internet and the beginning of the development of robotization.
The current fourth technological revelation, known as Industry 4.0, is motivated by the development of the following factors:
- artificial intelligence,
- cloud computing,
- machine learning,
- Big Data database technologies,
- Internet of Things.
On the basis of the development of these IT instruments and technologies, business analytics of companies such as Business Intelligence and the above-mentioned areas have been dynamically developing in recent years.
In view of the above, I turn to you with the following question: In what direction will the current technological revolution, known as Industry 4.0, develop?
Will "ECONOMY" change its character, its functions in the context of changing economies in the 21st century, in the context of the current fourth technological revolution Industry 4.0, in the context of the growing importance of renewable energy, environmental protection, to reduce the Earth's greenhouse effect and increase the scale of sustainable implementation development?
Is it time to change the civilization development strategy globally and focus on sustainable socio-economic development?

What is the legitimacy of conducting social research on the effects of smartphone use by young people to communicate via social media portals?
Question

  • Dariusz ProkopowiczDariusz Prokopowicz
Social effects of young people using social media on smartphones are currently an important topic of research. It is not easy to research a topic that has been developing for several years and is still developing. Social media has dominated the online communication of young people. The social behavior of young people has changed. Added to this are health issues. It has already been shown that due to the use of smarfons, the degree of deterioration of young people has significantly increased.
However, worsening eyesight, emerging vision defects in many young people using smarfons are not potentially the only negative aspects. The research conducted on this issue shows that there are various social effects of using young people from social media portals in smartphones. Unfortunately, there are also more and more research on negative aspects of social use by young people from social media portals in smartphones.
Research on the social effects of young people using smartphones to communicate via social media portals should be conducted. First of all, we do not know the potential effects of changes in the social behavior of citizens, which may have a psychological basis. These studies should also answer the question: whether dynamic technological progress in the field of communication techniques can significantly modify the social behavior of citizens and what the significance of changes in psychosocial behavior regarding entire societies may have.
Young people using social media portals in smartphones point to many positive aspects, but these are basically only facilitations in terms of communication and obtaining information. However, negative social aspects are not perceived by young people using social media portals in smarfons. Research is already being carried out in some research centers in the field of sociology, but we will have to wait for full confirmation of the research.
In addition, these studies will be continued in the following years because the technology of online social media portals and also in the field of communication techniques and devices, including smarfonów is still developing and now it is difficult to determine in which direction this progress is going, what new categories of risks will appear in relation to with this progress.
Do you agree with me on the above matter?
In the context of the above issues, I am asking you the following question: What is the legitimacy of conducting social research on the effects of smartphone use by young people to communicate via social media portals?

Is unethical business practices a negative external effect of non-ideal market structures or imperfection of the social market economy?
Question
4 answers
  • Dariusz ProkopowiczDariusz Prokopowicz
Unethical business practices operate in different countries to varying degrees and participate in economic processes.
For many entities, market participants, business partners and consumers, they generate additional costs.
They can also be a source of gray economy growth, including avoiding paying taxes.
Thus, there are social costs for individual entities and financial for the entire economy.
On the capital markets, one of unethical business practices is, for example, insider trading, ie the use of confidential information by decision-makers with access to confidential information used to conduct transactions to purchase or sell financial instruments, including securities or other securities or other capital markets.
In individual countries, there are various instruments to combat the use of unethical business practices, the shadow economy, etc.
The effectiveness of individual normative solutions, the scale of restrictions applied, and the business mentality of market participants, entrepreneurs and businessmen are different.
Another mentality is related to the level of awareness regarding corporate social responsibility.
In individual countries, social campaigns are carried out suggesting the legitimacy of developing concepts based on corporate social responsibility.
In view of the above, please answer the following question: Is unethical business practices a negative external effect of non-ideal market structures or imperfection of the social market economy?

Startups develop innovative business projects in such areas as: information technology, ICT, Internet, biotechnology, energy, ecology, environmental protection, medicine, agribusiness, etc. In addition, a number of innovative technologies in construction, material, process and marketing innovations have recently been created in the field of smart city, life science, cleantech, medical intelligence and others that are used by companies and corporations operating in various sectors of the national or international economy.
In addition, innovative business projects are also developed in the fields of various fields of information services, advanced data processing, business analytics and the development of teleiform technologies, which together are the pillars of a knowledge-based economy. The current technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 is motivated by the development of the following factors:
Big Data database technologies, cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence. It is anticipated that in the next years in these fields of science and technology many large startups will be created, which will be developed effectively based on innovative business projects related to the topics mentioned above. On the basis of the development of the new technological solutions mentioned in recent years, the processes of innovatively organized analyzes of large information collections gathered in Big Data database systems dynamically develop.
In each of these areas, many specific design topics can be distinguished, in which business startups develop and reach the minimum level of a medium-sized company or large corporation in a situation of spectacular business success based on a well-designed business and an effectively implemented innovative business project.

An important topic in the area of finance is the management of financial risk in the context of the analysis of sources of economic, financial, debt and other crises. The financial systems still have not been improved in their functioning, especially in the area of investment banking, in terms of unethical practices, the use of which was one of the significant sources of the global financial crisis of 2008.
In connection with the above in my opinion important topic on finance is the issue of risk management in the context of the analysis of the sources of the global financial crisis.
