IHS Markit recently published the "Manufacturing Technology Vertical Intelligence Service", including a manufacturer survey for the transformative technologies adoption in the semiconductor, display and electronics manufacturing sectors.
Saheli Roy Choudhury for CNBC: The outlook for job creation is more positive today because companies better understand what kind of opportunities are available to them due to developments in technology, according to WEF.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) is bringing us the factories of the future with the implementation of AI to help optimize and scale operations through predictive maintenance, improved safety amongst others.
VTT's proof of concept demo showed that a range of sensors or smart identifications can be added to 3D printed metal parts during manufacture, in order to track the performance and condition of machines or devices, or verify the authenticity of the parts.
Steel mills are rich in data, and learning algorithms only get better as they learn. Steel mill owners stand to improve their quality and margins dramatically from AI investment. AI can also reveal unexpected business opportunities as well as operational efficiencies.
Many businesses are already using continuous monitoring technologies - like Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices - which is a good start; but the key lies in not just simply monitoring the output of various data (which is how many companies use it today), but by taking the next step and employing advanced algorithms and machine learning to take action from real-time insights and anticipate future outcomes.
Awe-inspiring power and superior flexibility is sheathed within the contoured casing of the HAWK MV-4000. This smart camera builds upon the previous generation by quadrupling processing power and achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. Its state-of-the-art algorithms make it an excellent tool for any industry, whether the requirement be code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, gauging or a combination of all four.
