Session Description

Artificial intelligence has been growing in the public consciousness since the first chess-playing computer programs of the 1950’s and 60’s, and it now touches every element of our lives from recommending films, to filtering job applications, to health screening, so it’s no surprise that as the industrial sector moves towards digital transformation, AI is in the mix.  ​

AI applications include machine vision for finding defects and predicting failures to prevent unscheduled downtime, as well as digital twins that simulate and optimise production processes and products, across their lifecycle. The rise of generative AI and LLMs will soon lead to new productivity gains for the manufacturing workforce. However, deploying in an industrial environment brings challenges including integration with existing infrastructure, managing data quality, and ensuring reliability when lives may rely on critical safety requirements.​

In this session, we welcome experts to share their experience on the impact that AI applications are delivering in manufacturing today and how they are shaping the industry design of tomorrow, with technologies such as IoT, machine learning, computer vision and digital twins. The session will also take a close look at the supporting infrastructure, examining how technologies such as 5G and edge computing are making Industrial AI a reality.


*We are anticipating a busy MWC Barcelona, so seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, please ensure you make your way to your desired sessions early
