What is ‘platformisation’ and how does it relate to digital manufacturing? How can cloud-based design help steelmakers improve efficiency and reduce costs? How far can we go with ‘deep machine learning’ without losing our grip on ethical responsibility and what exactly is ‘knowledge engineering’?
These are all questions that need to be answered if steelmakers are going to gain a greater understanding of the world surrounding Industry 4.0 and its associated technologies.
Augmented reality, robotics, cyber-enabled design and manufacturing – they are all subjects that need to be ‘top of mind’ in the steel industry of the future. And did anybody mention FOG computing?
Join us at the Sofitel Hotel, Budapest, Hungary on 25-26 September 2019 to discuss, debate and discover the latest hard hitting topics that are facing steel manufacturers in this digital age.
Matthew Moggridge, Programme Director, is accepting abstracts for 2019. The deadline for abstracts is Monday 7th January 2019.
