Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1, and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the potential to:
• Improve productivity of internal applications
• Increase revenue through enhanced customer interacton and improved customer acquisiiton
• Reduce costs by optimizing operations
• Enhance products and services with "smart" functionality such as vision and voice interaction and control

Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and
less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as
increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates
obstacles for many manufacturers, and this is made more difficult by the need to
identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
NexCOBOT, a NEXCOM company, offers a flexible, modular robotics solution
integrating artificial intelligence (AI) with machine vision and powered by the
new Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products. The solution brings together
the insight of artificial intelligence, the mobility of robotics, and the capabilities
of machine vision, providing a new level of precision and optimization for
manufacturing and industrial implementations
To remain competitive, manufacturers must focus on achieving new growth while driving down costs. Key to achieving this is greater flexibility and a dramatic upturn in operational efficiency across the manufacturing process. One area ripe for improvement is intralogistics transportation.
Many manufacturers still rely on autonomous guide vehicles (AGVs) to undertake repetitive transport tasks; but, rigid in nature, they do not support today’s demand-driven, dynamic manufacturing environments. Intelligent autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), like SEIT* from Milvus Robotics, offer a viable and cost-effective alternative.
This solution brief describes how to solve business challenges through investment in innovative technologies.
The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1
Intel® technology-based gateways and Asavie, a provider of next-gen enterprise mobility management and IoT connectivity solutions, offer a security connectivity solution that minimizes the effort and cost to businesses to ensure safety from cybersecurity attacks. In addition, the Intel/Asavie IoT solution provides retailers with a solid basis to build their smart, connected projects:
o With foot traffic falling and online shopping options growing, retailers must find new ways to “digitize” and understand real-world behavioral data—such as in-store browsing patterns, staff attentiveness, and specific product interest— in the same way that online retail utilizes big data to optimize online experiences. They must also find innovative ways to keep customers engaged with their brands, especially in expensive brick-and-mortar locations. In this environment, managing labor costs is critical, as these costs are second only to real estate. Assigning and enabling sales associates cost-effectively is key to profitability. Retailers have an opportunity to meet their challenges by putting new data and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to work
The supply chain for manufacturers and distributors is facing challenges around increased analytics, multichannel fulfillment, talent shortages, and the use of new technologies such as wireless, augmented reality, robotics and machine-to-machine (M2M). At the same time, there is continued focus on cost reduction and sustainability.
The Industrial Internet of Things is driving a huge transformation as it increases the interconnection between connected devices and analytics. The smart manufacturing enterprise can seize opportunities to maximize efficiency and safety through networking and intuitive collaboration with its users.
This eBook shares practical steps to follow for a smart material handling and logistics approach.
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

El cómputo en la nube es una tendencia importante que ofrece ventajas en flexibilidad, escalabilidad y agilidad. Aun así, ha habido un gran despliegue publicitario. La realidad es que, hasta hace poco, la nube ha tardado en despegar para desplegar soluciones de inteligencia empresarial y analítica. Las organizaciones están preocupadas por la seguridad, el rendimiento, la funcionalidad y otros problemas críticos. TDWI Research está experimentando un cambio significativo a medida que las organizaciones muestran voluntad de experimentar con la nube. Este informe expone las experiencias de las organizaciones con la inteligencia de negocios, la analítica y la nube, así como lo que debe tomarse en cuenta respecto a este tipo de plataformas.
As organizations increasingly strive to become model-driven, they recognize the necessity of a data science platform. According to a recent survey report “Key Factors on the Journey to Become Model-Driven”, 86% of model-driven companies differentiate themselves by using a data science platform. And yet the question of whether to build or buy still remains.
This paper presents a framework to facilitate the decision process, and considers the four-year projection of total costs for both approaches in a sample scenario.
Read this whitepaper to understand three major factors in your decision process:
Total cost of ownership - Internal build costs often run into the tens of millions
Opportunity costs - Distraction from your core competency
Risk factors - Missed deadlines and delayed time to market
