Artificial Intelligence: Hype or ultimate driving force for Industry 4.0?
After sensor networks and big data analytics artificial intelligence is becoming a main focus of the automation industry. Some sceptics see it as a marketing hype, but for many experts it is the next step in developing Industry 4.0. AI is not only about analyzing data, it is about machine learning from experiences and using those insights in production and logistics, especially for predictive maintenance, for optimizing processes and capacity utilization and for the human-machine interface.
Which processes can be automated by using AI? Which areas of application include more than the usual repetitive programming of robots? Will the use of highly automated machines and digital service systems become easier and more intuitive through AI and therefore develop into a mass phenomenon? Which role does the German research and industry play in the international innovation competition. And when will we experience the great break-through of AI?
Experts from the areas of AI, information technology and automation technology discuss those and other relevant questions at our AI forum.
