Abstract: Increasing Manufacturing Productivity by leveraging AI at scale
Deploying Industry 4.0 AI use cases at scale comes with complex data harmonization challenges. Overcoming these is crucial to get the promised productivity improvements from AI. To effectively deploy AI use cases within a complex IT/OT environment, it is essential to identify and eliminate the bottlenecks in delivering value.

A paradigm shift is proposed: bringing AI to the data, rather than moving data to the applications and algorithms. This short talk will explore real-life use cases that demonstrate this innovative strategy and showcase its business value.
