Today, AI is characterized by some players over-promising results while others are overly skeptical. To make an accurate assessment of the future potential of AI in automation, we need to consider multiple perspectives. To do this, ARC has invited a panel of end users, technology providers and machine builders to discuss the current state of AI technology and its growing role in automation. Aspects to be discussed are:

  • What are the goals of AI in control systems?
  • AI perspective: What is possible, what computing resources are required, and where are the limitations?
  • Platform perspective: How can edge and cloud platforms be leveraged for AI?
  • Automation perspective: How can we ensure that AI doesn’t interfere with manufacturing processes?
  • User/OEM perspective: How easy is it to maintain AI?  
  •  What will the relationship between AI and automation look like in 10 years?
