Watch: How Are Industrial Manufacturers Embracing AI?
A discussion of the findings of a new study from KPMG about industrial manufacturing’s adoption of artificial intelligence, with Roy Mathews, Managing Director of Data Analytics, and David Neely, Managing Director in the firm’s Intelligent Automation Practice.
The KPMG study, “Thriving in an AI World,” examined AI adoption in seven industries, but this is the first year that it has addressed industrial manufacturing. And the results in that sector came as something of a surprise to those who assumed that many companies remain on the fence about investing in AI. In fact, 93% of the industrial manufacturing business leaders participating in the study said AI is “moderately to fully functional” in their organizations. That was the highest number among the seven industries surveyed by KPMG. And the same percentage of industrial manufacturing leaders said they wished their companies would even more aggressively adopt AI technology.
