How Artificial Intelligence Will Revolutionize Manufacturing

ArtificialIntelligence.jpeg“We have this tendency to make things smarter and smarter,” so says, digital visionary, Kevin Kelly, in his recent TED Talk about how artificial intelligence will spawn the next industrial revolution. Artificial intelligence is already doing many tasks way better than a human can do today. It’s analyzing x-rays in hospitals, combing through legal documents, and flying planes, all more effectively than we can do ourselves. It gives us the ability to think differently which in turn leads to new creations and new jobs. By fully embracing A.I., we can then steer it in any direction that suits our needs. For example, the last revolution put the power of 250 horses into our cars. The looming one, will put the power of 250 minds into the saddle to drive them. This will open up doors to categories of tasks in manufacturing that we never knew we could complete. And we’ll be able to let A.I. handle the productivity and efficiency, while we keep tackling the exploration and innovation.
