Artificial Intelligence for the Manufacturing Renaissance

The Resilience of Companies in a “New Normal” Society

The 2020 edition of the World Manufacturing Forum highlighted how, in the attempt to move towards a global economic renaissance, technological innovation is progressing rapidly and how AI has become an area of strategic importance and a key driver of a resilient economy.


The event discussed how Artificial Intelligence is impacting the manufacturing sector at large, the extent to which it provides us with new opportunities and, at the same time, the new adaptations and effort it requires to implement it.
