  • It’s the third industrial revolution. I am committed to the idea that there has been a massive paradigm shift which requires an economic, social, industrial and different culture which has disrupted our economy and the society’s organization

    Gilles Babinet, Digital Champion
  • As the day-to-day life becomes more and more digitalized and computerized, innovation creates, on the contrary, a great collaboration.

    Jean Paul Viart, Humanoides
  • Innovation means collectivize technological inventions which stem from scientifics insights. Innovate means produce new things (methods, objects, services) in order to install them in a market.

    Bernard Stiegler, Ars Industrialis
  • The forecastings made by Cisco show that within 2022, the Internet of Things will generate 14,4 trillion of dollars of profits and incomes. Another study conducted by General Electric, published in November 2012, concludes that the productivity and efficiency gains, provoked by an industrial and digitalize system, will have a big impact on all the economic sectors within 2025. It will have an impact on about a half of the global economy.
