Visualizing future factories
Factories of old are certainly not the factories of today. And factories of the future may not even be recognizable. Which is why our next guest’s institution of higher learning recently received $5 million in funding to study future factories. Their research will look at how factories of the future “think” and how humans and non-humans can interact to anticipate consumer needs and avoid supply chain issues like the ones we’re seeing now.
