In this course you will learn:

• What must manufacturing companies do in order to culturally prepare for AI?
• Does AI have the potential to transform corporate culture or are the effects of the technology being overblown?
• What are the best ways for manufacturers to culturally introduce their employees to AI-based systems?
• What does an AI-influenced manufacturing culture look like and what are its benefits and challenges?

Other panelists included, Gene Grabowski, Jr. of SAS Institute, Esteban Remecz of Maxion Wheels Holding GmbH, and Joe Sanguinetti of General Mills.


“In order to realize the full transformative benefits of AI, manufacturers need to prepare from multiple perspectives,” said Dr. Lee, also a member of the MLC’s Board of Governors, “Within Foxconn, we assess readiness for Industrial AI according to the dimensions of Talent, Tools, and Technologies, each of which are based in our corporate culture. Corporate culture is the basis for our ability to attract and cultivate big data talent, to incorporate technology systems that codify insights from data to create knowledge, and to promote management tools that can guide our decision making from relying on experience alone to become more evidence-based.”
