As a technology, AI is being used to support and even redefine the core role of humans in the manufacturing industry. The most dramatic impact of AI in manufacturing is in bringing enhanced efficiencies, particularly in machine-to-machine interactions.

According to a survey conducted by Infosys titled Amplifying Human Potential: Towards Purposeful Artificial Intelligence:


have been utilizing AI systems as a part of their operations for an average of two years


have fully deployed some form of AI or automation technology as part of their operations and decision-making processes

In the near future, AI and robotics will be able to take over many assembly activities on the evolving factory floor and bring in several cost reductions for manufacturers.

Top 5 areas of improvement for AI before it can be effective for manufacturers:


Time to implement

Robust proofs of concept

Demonstrable use case

Ease of use
