Industry 4.0 meets AI
Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize the production and energy industries. People teach machines to act logically and purposefully to meet customer needs. KI systems generate knowledge and today, based on data and algorithms, can continuously optimize operating states or reliably predict faults and failures – in production processes, in the power grid or in logistics. That's what Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence stands for.
Industrial Intelligence is not possible without human knowledge and qualifications
The networking of people, machines and data is created through common platforms where they exchange and multiply their knowledge. The role of humans is that of an enabler. The production of tomorrow is not possible without their process knowledge and their diverse qualifications. Industrial Intelligence therefore stands for the expansion of knowledge management and the training of knowledge carriers.
The theme of HANNOVER MESSE 2019 underlines the growing importance of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the production and energy industries, including such areas as energy efficiency and use and autonomous production processes as well as challenges in terms of interfaces, protocols and security. At HANNOVER MESSE, international thought leaders from the fields of AI and industry come together to jointly discuss and develop solutions for tomorrow. Köckler: "Managers who are responsible for strategic decisions in their companies should deal in detail with potential uses and impending upheavals. HANNOVER MESSE 2019 is the platform to stay informed."
