Join Beno Juarez and [email protected] for a brown bag lunch to learn about and discuss digital manufacturing, also known as Industry 4.0, an important and motivating aspect of digital fabrication's impact on the world. Beno will present the theoretical and technological underpinnings of this next step in our industrial development arc, using examples of communities in Latin America that are moving from traditional manufacturing pratices to digital manufacturing. Together, we'll discuss the impacts on society and explore the tools for changing our industrial paradigm and moving towards Industry 4.0.
