The Circular Dream: is AI the catalyst for manufacturers to become truly circular and realise their sustainability vision?

Thursday, 07 December 2023

18:30  to  20:30 Europe, London



INDUSTRIES: Manufacturing

EVENT TYPE: Digital Experience


Manufacturing is facing a huge challenge: striking the balance between servicing demand, managing risk and driving innovation in sustainable production. The evolution from the linear ‘take-make-dispose’ approach to the circular ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ model is an unstoppable tide: only manufacturers embracing it can hope to thrive in a world where customers and consumers require products that are made using sustainable practices.

With data at the core of all of this – from demand modelling to carbon measurement and product prototyping – how can today’s manufacturer harness the power of AI to become truly sustainable and take advantage of the trillion-dollar opportunity?

Predicting the demand

To achieve a successful circular model, any waste must be minimised throughout the process. AI can be employed to combine, manage and analyse trillions of gigabytes of information from customers, seasonal factors, global events, enabling demand to be predicted much more accurately.

Designing and protecting the future

Introducing AI-driven processes into product and manufacturing design can drive efficiency up and waste down. Advanced virtual modelling can also help in the conservation and reuse of natural resources in ways that had not previously been possible.

Empowering the human-machine interaction

For you to succeed in your sustainability journey, the workforce of tomorrow needs to be empowered to drive up individual productivity. How can AI help you scale the potential of your workforce to the next level?
