Connecting the dots...

Industrial Revolutions are not new.  It is a label affixed to transformational changes in the economy because of extreme changes in connectivity and automation.

They have affected rural and low income areas in North Carolina significantly when those in rural and low income areas were not able to stay connected, and when continuing changes in automation moved the economic center of gravity.

There are those that argue the world is on the verge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, fueled by extreme advances in connectivity from gigabit speed Internet services and extreme advances in automation resulting from artificial intelligence, sensor technology and robotics.

This represents both the threat to rural and low income areas...and the opportunity.  Technology makes it easier than ever for people in these areas to connect the dots to a BRIGHT Future.  Join us in making this BRIGHT Future a reality.
