Implementing AI in an Old School Manufacturing and Distribution Company
Michael Griffin, PhD, Lead Data Scientist • BlueMetal
The greatest impact that artificial intelligence has is in decision support; any decision based on the analysis of data can benefit from predictive analytics, simulations and optimization. Hear a case study involves a manufacturing and distribution company that is more than 100 years old. Over the past few years they have hired a team of 30 data scientists and deployed over 300 predictive models that are consumed at all levels of their organization. They deliver appropriate decision support to the right people at the right time. Within a few years they will be developing and deploying 1000’s of predictive models. To make that happen, they are migrating to the cloud. Discover the kinds of decision support they are delivering, the challenges they face, and their long term strategy of tying it all together into a single coherent program.
