March 18, 2024 - Lambeau Field in Green Bay

Levering artificial intelligence in manufacturing plenary panel topic at March 18 Tech Summit

Call it an example of “old cogs, new tricks.” Some manufacturers in Wisconsin are learning how artificial intelligence can boost productivity and efficiency, but others have yet to embrace it. Learn more about AI and manufacturing during a mid-day panel discussion at the 11th annual Wisconsin Tech Summit, which will take place March 18 in-person at Lambeau Field.

Panelists include Buckley Brinkman, president of the Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing & Productivity and two Wisconsin-based manufacturers who are currently using AI in their everyday work: Brandon Beard, president of Green Bay-based DuxxBak Composite Decking and Trey Taylor, director of digital innovation for Beloit-based Fairbanks Morse.

General admission registration is open.

The WCMP recently polled 415 executives on AI and other issues, with slightly more than half predicting AI won’t affect businesses like their own. Nearly three-quarters said they’ve never used AI – and have no plans to use AI – in their businesses.

“We think some manufacturers are under-estimating AI’s benefits. Whether it’s backlogged orders, data analysis or ways to save resources, AI can be a valuable tool for manufacturers,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “We hope this panel to highlight some practical examples.”
