The manufacturing industry is adopting artificial intelligent (AI) at a fast rate. This century-old industry is complex but has seen constant transformation across all of its facets.

Led by big data analytics, miniaturization of sensors enabling the Internet of Things (IoT), and, now, AI machine learning (ML), manufacturers everywhere have embarked on an AI transformation that is opening up potential new revenue streams as well taking costs and time out of existing processes.

This talk will walk through a use case for enterprise AI solutions within the manufacturing sector. We will discuss the challenges, motivation, and tool selection process, then cover the solution development in detail.
