KOMPAS.com – The world that has entered the era of the industrial revolution 4.0 seems no longer a mere figment. Various technologies that have marked the beginning of the industrial revolution 4.0, have begun to be applied in various lines. One of them is artificial intelligence (AI) or artificial intelligence that is growing at this time. Not only for industry, AI was also developed to facilitate human life in other aspects. As written by Kompas.com, Saturday (09/29/2018), the largest telecommunications company in Korea, KT, completed a hotel with artificial intelligence earlier this year. They installed smart speakers in the Novotel Ambassador Hotel and Residences room in Dongdaemun, Seoul. These smart speakers can be used by guests to turn on lights, change television channels, to order towels at room service. In addition to AI, there are four other technologies that support industry 4.0, namely the internet of things, human-machine interface, robotics and sensor technology, and three-dimensional (3D) printing technology. These five technologies are signs that in this era the industry will enter the virtual world and the use of automation machines that are integrated with the internet network. The effect of the application of these five technologies is an increase in production efficiency and an increase in productivity and competitiveness.   Like coins which have two different sides, industry 4.0 not only brings benefits to the industrial sector, but also new challenges for the workforce. As reported by Kompas.com, Wednesday (2/21/2018), the existence of automation or the use of robots in the manufacturing production process allows a reduction in labor, although the amount is not significant. To deal with the changes brought by industry 4.0, Indonesia was prepared to anticipate them.
