The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Bridging the Skills Gap in Manufacturing

Andrew Henderson

The skills gap in manufacturing is a major source of concern and anxiety for industrial companies. According to Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, “Over the next decade nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs likely need to be filled. The skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs going unfilled.” Addressing this gap will require traditional efforts in the form of education, training, and workforce development. It will also require new technology. Artificial intelligence (AI) is one technology that will play a significant role. Find out how AI will help, and explore forward-thinking examples.

In this session, you will learn about:

  • drivers for the skills gap concern in manufacturing
  • new technologies that will have an impact on the skills gap
  • AI’s ability to augment decision-making processes in manufacturing.
