Early adopters of Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) are already revolutionizing major sectors of our economy, including online marketing & advertising, consumer electronics, healthcare, media & entertainment, and defense & intelligence.
The next wave of AI promises to disrupt older, larger sectors of our economy – manufacturing, energy, transportation, and robotics. These sectors have historically invested heavily in automation technologies using rules-based systems, with all of their limitations.
With the rise of the industrial internet of things, new technologies based on data-driven AI systems open a world of new opportunities. These new applications are able to apply AI models to complex physical systems in harsh industrial environments. These industrial applications have the potential to unlock trillions of dollars of value through increased efficiency, greater worker productivity, and ultimately higher quality goods and infrastructure.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Key trends, challenges, and opportunities in the industrial industry
- Top use cases and industries, including manufacturing, energy, transportation, and agriculture
- How NVIDIA and SAP address the 4th industrial revolution with AI/ML
