Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to be the one technology that unleashes the value of the smart factory and the suggested potential of the fourth industrial revolution. But there are many misconceptions of what AI can and can’t do. While it can beat the world’s masters at Chess or Go and outperform specialist diagnosing chronic disease, it is still unclear where it will add the most value in an industrial setting.
I wanted to talk to those in the manufacturing space that know the technology and its limitations. The people who are using AI in the field and are developing solution for the market. My first guest is Anh Nguyen, CTO of Creative Electron., a company that has already released an AI solution into the market, their TruView Parts Counter AI. Joel Scutchfield, Americas sales manager of Koh Young, who are developing AI solutions to aid inspection and use inspection data better, joined us as well. The final guest is Michael Ford, senior director, emerging industry strategy, at Aegis Software. Ford is a technology scout with a pragmatic real-world view on what technology can do.
The three panelists join me to explore where and how the most value can be derived by the smart use of AI, driven by quality data and utilized to add real value.
