Generative AI and Artificial Intelligence in general is the hot topic in all areas of life, not just in the industrial sector. While there is a lot of excitement surrounding AI, it is common for some industry players to overhype its capabilities, while others remain skeptical and highlight potential challenges.


To have a more realistic understanding of the potential and limitations of AI in automation, it is important to consider multiple perspectives. In our workshop end users, technology providers and machine builders will discuss the current state of AI technology and its growing role in automation.  The possibilities of AI in control systems, required resources and limitations of AI, the utilization of edge and cloud platforms as well as an outlook on future possibilities will also be part of the discussions and presentations.
