AI is Revolutionizing Advanced Manufacturing Smart Factories

AI is not just revolutionizing the world of manufacturing, it’s changing the way we create, collaborate, and educate. Join SC Competes and industry leaders for a deep dive into how AI can help alleviate labor shortages, solve complex plant floor challenges, and inspire the next generation of workers.

Susie Shannon, President and CEO of the SC Council on Competitiveness, and Kim Christ, Director of SC Tech and CyberSecSC, will kick off the luncheon with an overview of SC Compete’s new Palmetto AI Corridor.

You won’t want to miss the live, on-stage demonstration from SPOT – the Boston Dynamics AI-enabled “dog,” owned in partnership with SC Competes and the SC Department of Commerce. SPOT will bring awareness to AI and advanced manufacturing by visiting classrooms across the state in 2023.

Hear from the experts who are currently designing the AI curriculum for K-12, two-year, and four-year degree programs that will lay the foundation for effective skills that can roll directly into the workforce.

Learn how your company can be part of South Carolina’s development as an AI-Enabled Corridor.

• Plus, lunch will be served!
