From robotic planting and harvesting systems through self-driving trucks, inspection systems, traceability, robotic pick and place loading systems, robotic grading systems, food processing systems, pick and place, inventory control and other areas, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is planning major changes that will impact the food supply chain management, in ways we can only imagine.

If you think artificial intelligence only runs robots or drives cars, think again.

AI is ramping up in all food supply chain areas. Through the use of giant databases, super computers and new software with information and technologies supplied by Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, Intel, Google, the Internet of Things, Baidu, Amazon, NVIDIA, iRobot, Netflix, PayPal and hundreds of others, organizations are betting big and betting now on advances beyond most of our imaginations.


If AI has not already impacted your company due to customer driven cost reductions, improvements in food safety and quality or delivery through-put times, it soon will.
In this webinar we will review some of the current trends and products coming your way regardless of where you sit in the food supply chain.

We will cover basic concepts of artificial intelligence and discuss use of artificial intelligence in operations and supply chain planning, and how some of the giant companies are working together to bring AI to you. We will also step through different currently available systems and on into some of the technologies and companies driving this massive movement.

AI is a controversial but undeniable force moving into the food supply chain management. Understanding the basics and trends is critical to your company’s ability to meet new customer and market demands. Now is the time to get on board.
