Presentation of Machine Learning 4.0 and its implications on industries.

CyberTech Engineering is providing a new Machine Learning Paradigm based on Conversation Theory of Gordon Pask. In this context, conversation is understood as an exchange of knowledge between two or more participants, e.g humans but also industrial machines. This means that machines are capable to learn new behaviors from the interaction with human operators; and vice versa, the human can learn from the machines about their technologies and manufacturing concepts. Humans and machine are in a constant exchange. This leads to a new human-machine collaboration, where humans, their cognitive and emotional capabilities are smoothly integrated with technical systems.

With the human operation system HumanOS, CyberTech Engineering provides a first conceptual prototype. This control system is made of several control levels, each one able to exchange associated knowledge with human beings. In contrast to classical systems, HumanOS can learn new behaviors and thus can dynamically adapt to new requirements and situations.

This is a revolution! Machines are not "stupid" artifacts anymore, they are "smart industrial machines" (SIMs), capable to converse and collaborate with human beings in a natural way and gaining their smartness through everyday interactions.
