It has been less than a decade since the concept of Industry 4.0 se afianzó. A pesar de ello, algunos visionarios ya se están centrando en the next industrial revolution, Industry 5.0. This technological revolution is aimed at promoting the transformation of the industrial sector into smart spaces based on IoT and cognitive computing. Such technology seeks to bring machines and humans together, or in other words, to develop Artificial Intelligence so that it can perform processes similar to those performed by human thought. 

New investment trends: Industry 5.0

The Industry 5.0 emphasises collaboration between machines and humans to improve productivity and efficiency. These professionals must be adapted to work side by side with intelligent machines. Knowing this, let's take a look at what Industry 5.0 will look like. 

With Factory 5.0, the figure of the Chief Robotics Officer has appeared. This is a person specialised in the interaction between machines and operators, who also has knowledge in areas such as robotics or artificial intelligence. His or her role in the company involves making decisions around these factors. 

By putting humans back at the centre of industrial production, with the help of a new generation of tools such as collaborative robots, Industry 5.0 will not only give consumers the products they want, but also create jobs for workers that are more meaningful than traditional repetitive factory jobs. By 2030, robots and digitisation are expected to end 470,000 jobs, while potentially creating 495,000 jobs.  

Example of the application of Industry 5.0.

Repsol ya ha integrado la industria 5.0 en su empresa. El robot se llama AGV (Autonomous Guided Vehicle) se trata de un robot colaborativo que realiza tareas logísticas como el reparto de muestras diarias entre los laboratorios, entrega de materiales desde el almacén, retirada de residuos… Es capaz de moverse entre plantas, abrir puertas y llegar a todos los laboratorios. Cuenta con una capacidad de carga de 100 kg y una autonomía de más de 10h o 20 km gracias a baterías de litio, que recarga de manera autónoma.

for M&A
Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
