5 AI solutions leading the industry 4.0 race: Staff Picked

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, is changing the way businesses operate and therefore the environments in which they are forced to compete in.

This revolution is driven by the explosion of new technology. Robotics, analytics, artificial intelligence, cognitive technologies, nanotechnology and the Internet of Things (IoT), among others. Organizations need to use technology scouting tools, such as Novable, in order to invest in the most relevant technologies. If companies do not understand the changes and opportunities that Industry 4.0 bring, they risk losing market share.

Technology scouting is a topic that Novable Agents often discuss with their clients, so here is a list of companies using AI discovered through the use of Novable’s technology scouting tool. These companies focus their efforts on accelerating industrial operation’s digital transformation journey.
