Sadly, the majority are still in the exploration stage, which needs to change. On-shoring, skills shortages, higher expectations and new technologies mean that this can no longer be ignored. There are opportunities to be had, but what are these and how difficult can it be to digitise your manufacturing? This session will look at how you can digitise/digitalise your operations and the key considerations. It will consider where you in the journey are where you want to be with examples. Hopefully, the approaches covered will accelerate your journey and give confidence for the future.

As a serial entrepreneur, Emrah has more than 20 years of building startups and businesses. The Chooch AI platform delivers complete visual AI solutions, reducing costs and increasing accuracy for a wide range of processes and industries. Chooch AI is deployed on the edge and in the cloud, delivering fast, accurate computer vision for any spectrum of visual data. IoT can now more easily be transformed into AIoT. Whether counting people in retail shops, checking for safety equipment on work sites, or logging actions operating rooms, AIoT can radically increase the accuracy and scope of intelligent video analytics. How is this achieved? After Chooch AI models are trained in the cloud, AI inference engines generated are remotely deployed to industry leading NVIDIA Jetson processors. On the edge, Chooch AI can process video feeds with as little as 0.2 second response times. Chooch Edge AI deployments are remotely managed and can be updated from the Chooch AI Dashboard in the cloud over time, further improving scope and performance of AIoT.
