Sustainability in Manufacturing is related to developing products, goods, and services that involve meeting our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to fulfill their own needs. Sustainability as a concept recognizes that the environment is an exhaustible resource. Therefore, it is essential to use the environment and its resources rationally and protect it for the good of the Earth, our environment, humanity, & all living things.
The roundtable pivoted around how AI can contribute to overcoming challenges that the Manufacturing Industry is facing by leveraging AI.
Let’s summarize our key takeaways from the roundtable on AI for sustainable manufacturing:

To solve humanity’s greatest challenges we need to educate AI engineers at scale with an ethical sustainable mindset!
