Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, refers to the integration of advanced digital technologies into manufacturing and industrial processes. Key elements include the Internet of Things (IoT), cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, big data analytics, and smart automation. This revolution aims to create highly flexible, efficient, and interconnected industrial environments.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) significantly impacts Industry 4.0 by enabling predictive maintenance, optimizing supply chains, enhancing quality control through advanced data analysis, and facilitating autonomous operations with robotics and smart systems. AI-driven insights improve decision-making, boost productivity, and foster innovation, making industrial processes more agile and responsive to market demands.
