Production Pulse: Real-World Generative AI Applications in Manufacturing

Sept. 14, 2023
Schneider Electric's Mauricio Casares agrees that most current ChatGPT applications pitched at manufacturers are more about sales than operations, but solid use cases are coming.

Welcome back to Production Pulse, IndustryWeek's bi-weekly conversation with newsmakers and deep thinkers in the manufacturing world. And, for the second episode in a row, we're talking generative artificial intelligence (AI). Two weeks ago, we spoke to our colleagues from other Endeavor Business Media manufacturing brands. This week, we're talking to Mauricio Casares, the smart industry guru at Schneider Electric who determines how and where that industrial giant spends much of its technology investments.

As with the editors, Casares says most AI manufacturing applications use traditional machine learning techniques, but his companies and others are finding ways of using ChatGPT-style systems to boost productivity and drive operations.
