The Industrial Internet is changing the way the world does business — and that includes at 35,000 feet. That fact is clearly on display at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, which started Monday. Airline carriers around the world have started connecting their planes to the Industrial Internet to capture and analyze the data they produce, […]
Henry Ford’s Model T looks like no car on the road today and the Wright Flyer has been rightfully retired in the Smithsonian. And yet another piece of technology that predates them both—the electric grid—still looks like a network that its designer, Thomas Edison, would recognize. Edison, who also founded GE, built the first grid […]

There is plenty of uncertainty in Brussels this summer, the home to a number of European Union institutions. But one safe bet in the Belgian metropolis is that the lights will stay on. That’s because the city’s electrical grid is using the Industrial Internet to get smarter. Sibelga, the company that operates the only distribution […]

Sam Cossman is the human version of a heat-seeking missile. In fact, he craves heat to the extreme. Cossman, perhaps the world’s most prominent volcano explorer of the moment, spent the early part of August lowering himself into Nicaragua’s active Masaya Volcano, which is threatening people living in the area. Clad in a silver suit […]

Since GE started building its digital business five years ago, it has pursued organic growth, combining a century of domain expertise in building big machines with asset management software and advanced industrial analytics. But the company also has been willing to buy growth when the right opportunity comes along. Today, GE Digital, the company’s software […]
We fly connected planes and design self-driving cars, but what about smart trains? If you pay close attention, there is the faint sound of the whistle coming from around the digital bend. At this week’s InnoTrans 2016 transportation trade show in Berlin, for example, GE is unveiling a “superbrain” platform for locomotives that transforms them […]

When the machines of tomorrow talk to each other, what language will they speak? Will a German car be able to communicate with traffic in America, and a jet engine from Cincinnati with a maintenance shop in China? GE Digital and Bosch Software Innovations, the Bosch Group’s software and systems house, are working together to […]

The 1953 movie “Niagara” starred Marilyn Monroe as a honeymooner with a wandering eye taking a trip to Niagara Falls. But she was hardly the only one seduced by the power of the water flowing through the Niagara River, which straddles the border between the U.S. and Canada in northwestern New York. Just a few […]

Ping-Pong tables and foosball aren’t the sorts of things people typically associate with a 124-year-old company that builds turbines for power plants and engines for planes. But they are part of the package at GE’s new “Digital foundry” that opened a short walk from beaux-arts halls of the Paris Opera this summer. “You are surrounded […]

Thomas Edison famously said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Kevin Collins can relate. By fanning the embers of a promising idea for years, he built his powerful machine learning company called Bit Stew. Now GE, the company Edison founded, just acquired it for an undisclosed sum. GE made […]

One day, when he was still barely a teenager, the film director Steven Spielberg came to visit his father, Arnold, at work. It was the late 1950s and the elder Spielberg was building computers for GE in Phoenix. His designs included a revolutionary machine that a group of computer scientists at Dartmouth College later used […]

It’s been a year since GE opened Predix, its operating system for the Industrial Internet, to outside companies. Since then, it has enabled engineers to write apps, harvest data from trains, planes, power plants and other technology and send that data to the cloud for analysis. For example, Schindler Group, one of the world’s biggest […]

Before GE acquired Wise.io, the machine learning company saw the future written in the stars. In 2008, Joshua Bloom, a professor of astronomy at the University of California, Berkeley, was struggling to make sense of tens of thousands of telescope images of the night sky — black pictures dusted with little white dots. The differences […]
