The AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) refers to applying AI to IoT-based technologies. In the industrial manufacturing context AI (Artificial Intelligence) has not a lot of use without the IoT (Internet of Things). This is a trend that is already happening; if the internet of things means connecting your ‘things’ to the internet, then AIoT means using internet connectivity to make your ‘things’ intelligent. Smart manufacturing devices use real-time data analytics and machine-to-machine sensors to optimize operations, logistics and supply chain. Sophisticated AI-based algorithms are required to understand how to interpret all that data and what to do about it. Such algorithms can look at millions of datapoints streaming from a factory in real-time and, apply artificial intelligence both to optimizing operations for the long-term, and to solving problems in the short-term.
