The impact of Quality 4.0, cloud computing isn't all created equal

Published: Tuesday, August 1, 2017 - 12:00

Our July 28, 2017, episode of QDL we looked at science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) education for the deaf and hard of hearing; Quality 4.0; and cloud computing.

“Teaching STEAM Skills to Deaf Kids Using Drones and 3-D Printing”

The deaf and hard of hearing are underreprented in STEM vocations. The University of Alabama at Huntsville, the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind, and the Rochester Institute of Techology are looking to change that.

“Lessons From the Merchants of Venice”

By studying Venice’s supremacy in long-distance trade and success in opening new markets over the centuries, we can see the importance of network effects, contractual innovations, and coordination among players involved in commercial relationships.

“Quality 4.0”

Quality 4.0 has been brought about by a long list of technology advances in several arenas. which together enable innovation, new insights, connectivity between people, and connectivity between people and machines.

Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Fri., Aug. 4, 2017. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
