The topic of retrofitting, i.e., the modernization of machines and systems into the digital age, is also an important trend in terms of sustainability, energy saving and resource optimization that we are also serving.
The smart robot market is growing and industries including aerospace, defense, medical, manufacturing, freight and others are all looking at ways to leverage robots to improve their services and products. However, Artificial Intelligence impacts everything on a macro level.
In a survey, some 80% of telecommunications executives stated they believe their organization cannot respond appropriately to cyberattacks without AI. What's more, 69% of all senior executives agree they would not be able to respond without AI on their side.
AI brings efficiency through big data analytics and performance insights on an unprecedented scale. With this power, AI is advancing supply chains for a cleaner, more cost-effective future. Preparing for this future starts with understanding AI implementation in the present.
Let's take a closer look at next-generation, AI-enhanced industrial robots - today's ripe conditions for emerging use cases, their benefits and promised opportunities - to find out why.
As barriers between human activities and robotic capabilities diminish - moving beyond the fenced activities of last-generation industrial robots - new collaboration and workflow models are bringing humans and robots together in industry.
In a move to accelerate their perfume development, 124-year-old Swiss flavor and fragrance giant Givaudan launched an AI program, Carto, which optimizes their production by making perfume recommendations based on a chart that details the individual properties of different fragrances.
Groundbreaking developments in recent years in the fields of Robotics and AI have allowed the textile industry to progressively adopt automation in their manufacturing processes.
"High levels of up-front expenditure, both in development and hardware, characterise the space, typically demanding large scale pain points before investment begins."
As practice shows - despite an array of benefits it brings - AI can significantly harm humanity. One way to avoid negative consequences is to create an AI code of ethics, for example, in accordance with the international human law.
Deployment with Badger Technologies and new patent enable faster and less expensive AI applications at the edge for robotics
Musashi AI consortium is a direct result of this need and is focused on enabling the manufacturing industry to take massive leaps forward to reach the full potential that AI and the smart factory will bring to bear.
MIRAI learns by watching demonstrations: a human guides the robotic arm through various motions, MIRAI watches, generalizes and learns to solve the same task autonomously.
Regardless of the size of the company or industry in which it operates, adding automation into a business environment can mean a significant shift in the way an organization conducts itself.
CES 2019 showed artificial intelligence will influence every aspect of our lives. IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty's opening keynote explored how AI will prove data is the "world's greatest natural resource,"

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
