McKinsey & Company Report Examines Uses for Augmented Reality in Industry 4.0
A new report published by consultancy McKinsey & Company, entitled “Industry 4.0 – How to Navigate a Changing Industrial Landscape,” describes the role of ubiquitous sensors and new data analytics. The report predicts that there will be a 30-55 percent drop in knowledge work (healthcare, IT, legal, finance) between 2010 and 2020. Those workers who remain will need to perform specialized and undocumented tasks. These will be supported through remote experts and with Augmented Reality.
