Every year on October 14, members of the IEC, ISO and ITU join together to celebrate international world standards day, a tribute to the thousands of experts around the world who have worked to develop technology agreements into international standards.
World standards day is just around the corner, and the theme of each year's standards day gets a lot of attention. The theme of world standards day 2018 is "international standards and the fourth industrial revolution".
Just as standards played an important role in the first industrial revolution more than 250 years ago, standards will play a key role in the fourth.
The fourth industrial revolution refers to emerging technologies that make the traditional boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds less apparent. The increased connection between people and things will have a great impact on the way we produce, trade and communicate, just as steam power changed the way society produces and lives in the first industrial revolution.
In the 18th century, the shift from manual to mechanical and factory work raised the demand for standards. For example, replacement of machine parts and specialized parts for mass production.
Today, standards will again play a key role in the transition to a new era. Without standards, we cannot witness the rapid development of the world. Innovators rely on international standards, such as IEC, ISO and ITU, to ensure compatibility and interoperability so that new technologies can be seamlessly integrated. Standards are also tools for knowledge dissemination and innovation around the world.
The rapid changes brought about by the fourth industrial revolution also face challenges. Robots and artificial intelligence will increasingly do what humans do, and additive manufacturing (such as 3D printing) will change the way we make things, allowing us to "print things" at home, digitally linking everything from airplanes to baby monitors. But at the same time, data vulnerability and the consequences of default have grown exponentially. These are just a few examples of the problems posed by the new generation of smart technologies featuring big data, enhanced integration, cloud storage and open communication devices. International standards are a powerful means of ensuring safety and reducing risks. For example, security standards can keep our data safe from hackers. And the robot's safety standards will make it easier to interact with humans.
The fourth industrial revolution has begun, but for the sake of To fully realize its potential to improve society, we need standards!
