Deloitte Industry 4.0 Readiness Report. The research surveyed more than 2,000 global executives and public sector leade
rs in 19 countries, including about 130 from China, about how they are prepared to embrace the revolution.
According to the report, the revolution－which features the booming new technologies and th
e combination of them－has a big opportunity to positively change the world, but has also posed great
