The volume of information is so large that it is impossible to filter it. This is where AI comes into play, which can handle these huge volumes of data and provide more accurate analysis, thus preventing human decisions from being based on error.
In relation to it, Zebra Technologies Corporation It will mark the beginning of a new era in data analysis and artificial intelligence solutions in the business field, especially at the edge of networks.
“Our researchers are pioneering ways to embed AI into our hardware and software systems to benefit workers in every industry, from warehousing and manufacturing to retail and healthcare,” said Stuart Hubbard, Senior Director of AI and Advanced Development at Zebra Technologies.
AI at the Edge
During the pandemic, it has been learned that we cannot base our actions on assumptions. It is crucial to enlist the help of AI to analyze and contextualize scenarios, providing insight into who, why, what, where and when important events occur, highlighting patterns we might miss.
Data analytics and multi-modal AI applications are reinventing the way we work as data collected by IIoT devices is analyzed closer to where it is generated
AI research teams are working on a variety of projects, including object detection/recognition, retail shelf analytics, robotics, shelf and warehouse analytics, digital twins of physical spaces, and voice assistants.
In retail and hospitality, decisions should not be based solely on customer footfall or past behavior. AI helps consider factors such as weather, traffic, local events, and macroeconomics to make informed decisions about inventory sourcing and labor needs.
A factory worker cannot be sure that he has thoroughly inspected a small screw or diesel injector nozzle if the human eye cannot detect the slightest variation in thread pitch. And a camera by itself, either. AI analysis of the image is needed before making a decision on whether to ship or remove from inventory.
Businesses today can leverage analytics and AI to shape the work of tomorrow, where workers will see more, do more, make better decisions, and act faster.
