Digitalization, Human Intelligence & The Factory of the Future
We’ve seen movement towards the digitalization of some aspects of supply chains and we hear a lot about how artificial intelligence will eventually help improve productivity, speed to market and even reduce costs. But, what if we could harness the human intelligence of the tens of millions of artisans who make all of our clothing and footwear? We’ll explore how that brainpower combined with digital production technologies is creating the factory of the future today.
