Check Out Our Industrial AI & Cyber Security Reports:
With the increased efficiency that Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies can provide, implementation of these technologies has a huge effect on industrial sectors.
In industrial settings, AI is a powerful tool for predictive maintenance, helping owners plan for breakdowns in machinery, minimize waste, improve overall optimization of production, and strengthen the cyber security of IT and OT systems. That’s because AI technology has the ability to recognize image and sound patterns, for example, and respond quickly and intelligently to situations that arise.
In virtually all factories, poor demand forecasting and capacity planning, unexpected equipment failures and downtimes, supply chain bottlenecks, and inefficient or unsafe workplace processes can lead to resource wastage, longer production periods, low yields on production inputs, and lost revenue. Industrial AI is addressing all of these problems and several forward-thinking manufacturers are already relying on AI to tackle these issues.
