10/25 Manufacturing: The Future is Artificial Intelligence

Manufacturing is undergoing a quiet revolution. Humans have been difficult to compete with so far because they have excellent vision and manipulator systems (eyes and hands) that can be endlessly re-trained, but data output options are really slow: handwriting, typing, or speaking. Machines on the other hand, are getting better at both vision and manipulation, but the key advancement is that they can communicate at the speed of light.

Manufacturing intelligence is an inevitable evolution of the automation and analytics trends in the space today. Making just one unit that is high-quality is hard; designing a process that can make thousands or millions, over and over again, is even harder. This field is still nascent, with the first of these machine-learning algorithms just starting to hit the marketplace from companies like Cognex and Instrumental.
