Georgia Tech Georgia Manufacturing 4.0 Initiative – Industry Listening Day

February 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST


We cordially invite you to join us for a virtual Industry Listening Day scheduled for February 11th 2022, as we prepare to launch the Georgia Manufacturing 4.0 Initiative, as supported by funding from the Department of Defense, Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation and further compete to realize the establishment of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Manufacturing Pilot Facility and the establishment of the AI Manufacturing Technology Corridor across all manufacturing sectors as part of EDA’s Build Back Better Regional Challenge (BBBRC). This will be a great opportunity to listen and learn from our industry partners regarding the technical, education and workforce challenges and opportunities in realizing Manufacturing 4.0 and how Artificial and Augmented Intelligence technologies can serve as an enabler.  AI enabled manufacturing will play a significant role in the efficiency, growth and long-term sustainability of advanced manufacturing in the state of Georgia and the Southeast region.
