Research and Analysis: AI-Powered Industrial Operations

By deploying the right intelligent manufacturing technologies such as AI, manufacturers can boost efficiency, improve agility, and enable self-optimizing operations. Yet, only about 9% of manufacturing organizations are leveraging AI today. There is an opportunity to accelerate the responsible transformation of manufacturing industries by informing decision-making for value adding implementation of intelligent manufacturing technologies, thereby: boosting productivity, augmenting workers and driving sustainability.

This initiative aims to:

  • Raise awareness on the value and feasibility of industrial AI​

  • Guide and inform decision-making on how to responsibly implement and scale AI in manufacturing ​

  • Demonstrate the outcomes and feasibility of industrial AI through tangible pilots​
