What Will I Learn?
Our immersion program will show you how, why and by whom the manufacturing sector is being disrupted. It will also teach you how to capitalize on the trends and technologies driving this digital transformation so that you can achieve innovation within your own organization. We cover topics such as:
Industrial Internet of Things
Asset-heavy sectors are adopting the internet of things in a big way, aided by startups that are increasingly taking market share from the larger enterprises that once dominated the rollout of the technology. In fact, the digitization of industry is a multi-billion dollar market. We examine this rapidly changing landscape and see how more connected machines and greater use of data-collecting sensors is at the heart of the disruption of manufacturing.
What does robotics have to offer the manufacturing sector? We dive deep to get answers to that question as we see how innovative young companies are bringing human-robot interaction to incredible new heights through “co-bots”. We meet the startups building a new generation of smart machines capable of complex tasks while being controlled remotely through a tablet, phone, watch or laptop.
We survey the latest developments in the space and meet the companies behind the most groundbreaking innovations. We see how analytics platforms are transforming manufacturing with predictive maintenance, problem diagnosis and quality control and learn how artificial intelligence is reducing waste while increasing output and productivity.
3D printing remains an important technology for manufacturing. We visit the established companies using it to drive innovation and deliver new customer experiences and meet the ambitious startups experimenting with printing living biotissue and getting 3D printers into consumers’ homes.
