Over 130 delegates gathered in Budapest for the third edition of the Future Steel Forum, and what a fantastic two days it was!
The two days were packed with panel discussions, case studies, keynotes, and of course, plenty of time for networking and Q&A.
Companies who attended include:
ArcelorMittal, AMETEK Land, IBM, OM Partners, PSI Metals, PwC Strategy, Rockcheck Steel Group, SAP, Swerim AB, Tata Steel and World Steel Association.
We are delighted to announce that the presentations are now available to download here.
We would once again like to say a huge thank you to all our speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees for attending another fantastic Future Steel Forum.
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?
“It's an exceptional opportunity to assess the evolution of the steel industry and to meet relevant people.”
Diego Diaz Fidalgo, R&D Engineer, ArcelorMittal
