The word industry no longer means just workers manually assembling products. Raw materials are carried by robots, processes are more and more automated and artificial intelligence is becoming a frequently used term.

In many respects, Slovakia, as an industrial country, easily adapts to the Industry 4.0 concept. Many Slovak-based branches are leaders in introducing technological innovations within their concerns, said Boris Duľa, CEO of the CEIT technology company, which focuses on Industry 4.0.

Some of them even resemble pioneers in the implementation of innovative solutions, he said. They gain the trust of the parent company in pilot projects.

“Once these pilot projects prove to be effective, they reach other affiliated plants within the group,” Duľa told The Slovak Spectator.

The need for new technologies is reflected in the direction the country has embarked on. After the concept and action plan for smart industry was approved in previous years, the Economy Ministry now promotes and financially supports the area.
