5 WAYS YOUR MANUFACTURING COMPANY CAN WIN WITH THE HELP OF AI

We are beginning to approach a world in which artificial intelligence, or AI, is a regular part of all industries as machines become increasingly capable of taking over both mundane and complex tasks. But manufacturing companies have known for decades what many other industries are only learning now: that humans and machines working together can unlock a wealth of potential and take productivity to entirely new levels. Since the late 90s, manufacturing companies have been well aware of the increased efficiency, productivity, and ultimate profitability that can be offered by integrating AI into everyday processes. We can see evidence of this in the rapid growth of the Global Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing Market, which is predicted to reach a value of $9.89 billion by the year 2027. Here are five ways in which your manufacturing company can benefit from this new-age technology.
