Industry 4.0 conference will focus on artificial intelligence
Already for fifth year the leading organisations such as TalTech, Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications (ITL), Estonian Electronics Industries Association, Enterprise Estonia (EAS), conference company Confent and numerous flagship technology companies join forces to promote the opportunities emerging from Industry 4.0 framework. The event has a strong track record of bringing together and benefitting manufacturers, ICT vendors, academia and policy makers.
The 5th Industry 4.0 in Practice Conference will take place at Innovation and Business Centre Mektory (Raja 15, Tallinn, Estonia) on May 29, 2019.
The goals of the Industry 4.0 conferences are: exploring the opportunities of AI and Machine Learning in Industry 4.0, introducing practical use cases of Industry 4.0 principles in manufacturing and bringing together manufacturers, ICT vendors, academia and policy makers. The conference is targeted to decision makers and experts in Baltic Sea Region.
According to the Professor at TalTech Tauno Otto, this is a unique international conference based on the principles of the sharing economy: “Co-organisers and partners jointly contribute to present the latest digitalisation know-how to the region's ICT and industry leaders”.
The conference will discuss the challenges the artificial intelligence can solve in industry and how it will affect various industrial processes. In addition to good examples, study cases and future visions being heard from the stage, Tauno Otto finds the meeting and networking of all industry stakeholders is important: “Industrial leaders and engineers, IT vendors, university representatives and public sector leaders will attend the conference. They meet with new ideas and opportunities to find the possibilities to implement them!”
Estonian Electronics Industries Association has been involved in organising the event since the very beginning. “Industry 4.0 in Practice is an excellent opportunity to showcase the competitive edge of Estonia’s world-class electronics industry, an ever-growing sector thanks to continuous digitalisation across all areas driving the research, product development and production of our members,” states the General Manager of Estonian Electronics Industries Association Arno Kolk.
Doris Põld from ITL says their goal is to help countries and organisations reach world-class digital societies and to help industry sector become even more successful. “The success of companies depends on others on the use of ICT in every possible way and Estonia is at the forefront of these knowledge and skills,” explains she.
