Learn about AI, the future of supply chains

For most of its history, the concept of AI has largely been relegated to the realm of science fiction. However, with a high number of advancements recently made in this field, the world has slowly begun to change its tune.

There’s no denying the potential paradigm-shifting AI is capable of. From self-driving cars to animatronic pets or soldiers, it could very well reshape the world as we know it. As it currently stands, the technology isn’t sophisticated enough to pull all of this off, but it’s certainly on the right track to do so.

Seeing how much it could change in the world, industries left and right are looking to implement it in one way or another, awaiting massive improvements in their infrastructure. Supply chains are among those hoping to reap the benefits of AI implementation.

How would AI improve supply chains? Among other things, with its help supply chains can:

  • Greatly reduce operations costs by optimising logistics and storage,
  • Significantly increase productivity by making fast, calculated, and well-informed decisions,
  • Create a more personalised experience for customers,
  • Improve production-planning through balancing various factors and constraints.

These are just a few of the benefits AI could contribute to the supply chain industry, but it should be enough to sell you on the idea. Any business choosing to heavily invest in AI development and integration could gain the leg up needed to become top dog in the supply world.

That’s precisely why learning about AI will pay enormous dividends in the long run. Knowing what to do with this technology could mean the difference between massive growth and stagnation. So where do you go to for a quick yet effective rundown about AI?
