How Manufacturers Can Find Success with Artificial Intelligence
Most manufacturers today are using some form of artificial intelligence (AI) in their business, but most would not describe their experiences with it in a positive light. Every innovative technology has a learning curve, AI is no exception.
The first step in finding success with artificial intelligence is understanding truly what it is and how it can benefit your business. You do not need to be experts, nor do you have to hire an expert to be on your staff. Most software platforms simplify AI applications, offering software integrations, hardware flexibility, and ease of use by non-experts.
If your manufacturing business is using machine learning or deep learning applications, the key to your success is data. These architectures rely on deriving a function to map input data to output data. The effectiveness of this mapping function hinges on both the quality and quantity of the data provided. Again, there are software platforms available that help collect images of healthy products.
Adopting AI applications in phases can also allow an organization to have a higher level of success versus trying to do too much, too soon. Start with one AI application, get your staff comfortable with how to effectively use it, then expand from there. Also, by doing this, you may discover that you have a member of your team that may notice using this technology very well and very quickly. They could become a power user of the technology and help with future endeavors.
