The impact of AI on the manufacturing industry

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is indispensable on our world. It gets more and more intertwined with the organization and the software that you are working with. The collaboration between human and machine can be benificial to companies. For example the increase of labour productivity, the realization of cost savings, better insight in customer behaviour and needs and even new business models.

What kind of impact does AI have on companies in the manufacturing industry and how can companies get advantage out of it? This the focus point of this exclusive captains dinner which Boost and her partners are organizing for companies in the manufacturing industry. The dinners are a tool for the organizing parties to receive input to determine what kind of knowledge and instruments (masterclasses, scans, etc.) are necessary to make use of AI within these companies.
