Peggy and Walid Ali, artificial intelligence, manufacturing, Microsoft, talk about manufacturing, AI (artificial intelligence), and how to empower workers. He says the workforce has been so drastically challenged with what has happened with COVID19 that now we are facing a demand for efficiency increase, a demand for better productivity, and a demand for also scaling the workforce.

They also discuss:

  • How the workforce is a foundational pillar in any digital transformation and how to empower them.
  • The ways in which the pressure for disruption and innovation have accelerated in the past year—and how it will continue to be accelerated in the coming years.
  • Ways to help the manufacturing workforce tap into knowledge through coalitions, courses, and more.
  • The correlation between sustainability and business profitability—it is just good business.
