You don’t have to look very hard to find gloomy predictions about the effect artificial intelligence (AI) is going to have on the working world. Whether or not you should worry about AI taking your job is still an open question, but AI’s revolutionary impact on many sectors—including manufacturing—should be uncontroversial.
Humera Malik, CEO of Canvass Analytics, understands the power of AI in manufacturing better than most. In a recent keynote at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS), she took the audience on a deep dive into automation and artificial intelligence, emphasizing the challenges and opportunities for AI in manufacturing.
ENGINEERING.com had the opportunity to speak with Malik about artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0 and the future of manufacturing.
