Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things are helping companies make the factory of the future a reality harnessing the power of machine vision, virtualization, connected devices and real-time insights. Companies hoping to achieve this Industry 4.0 level of manufacturing operation must address some important issues
(1) how to build data driven thinking within the workforce;
(2) how to identify goals for AI and then link these to the compute architecture; and
(3) how to move from concept to execution.
The challenge is a system of systems problem. It involves people, processes and technologies and no single vector will be sufficient for success. The evolution of the IOT market is driving a new way of computing, and helping companies overcome key challenges to enable a connected, smart and autonomous future.
