Essentially, IoT and data-based technologies will feed real-time content into an AI platform, which will then use machine learning algorithms to analyze and extract actionable insights. Beyond that, the data solutions may support additional power systems by controlling robots or informing various processes to influence output.
In other words, machine learning and AI allow for a degree of autonomy in the field like never seen before. While they are incredibly promising technologies, they’re still relatively new to the industry, which means manufacturers are looking for fresh and innovative ways to apply them. It makes a lot of sense, then, to consider some of the associated trends that will be taking hold throughout the coming year.
