Unveiling the potential of AI for the manufacturing industrymportales
The EU supports the widespread uptake of digital technologies in manufacturing business operations. Since 2013, the I4MS, ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs, initiative has helped SMEs and mid-caps to improve their products, business processes, and business models via digital technologies. Within I4MS, AI REGIO and KITT4SME are the projects supporting SMEs by experimenting and testing Artificial Intelligence techniques in manufacturing.
During the webinar participants will be introduced with key concepts on the use of AI and get first-hand information about the opportunities and support offered by these two projects.
The AI REGIO “Regions and Digital Innovation Hubs alliance for AI-driven digital transformation of European Manufacturing SMEs”, will build a one-stop-shop platform that enables access to resources for AI-based solutions in efficient and sustainable manufacturing, with particular emphasis on resources that can lower the AI adoption barriers for SMEs.
KITT4SME (platform-enabled KITs of arTificial intelligence FOR an easy uptake by SMEs) specifically targets European SMEs and mid-caps to provide them with scope-tailored and industry-ready hardware, software and organisational kits, delivered as modularly customisable digital platform, that seamlessly introduce artificial intelligence in their production systems.
