While it would be easy enough to dismiss all the current chatter about machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) as just some more hype, that would be a mistake. In the industrial world, we’re seeing ML and other subsets of AI being integrated within a variety of automation applications across both the discrete and process manufacturing industries. While new applications emerge daily, leading manufacturers are already using AI to predict (and avoid) equipment failures, quickly identify off-spec products, and optimize processes.
While these data-intensive technologies have clearly emerged as powerful tools for industrial digital transformation, questions remain. To see brief responses to some frequently asked questions, download this asset.
