Prof. Carlo Sansone, University of Naples Federico II


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a science with research activity in the areas of image processing, computer vision, natural language processing, robotics, machine learning etc. In the past, AI has been sometimes perceived as a kind of magical art: this has prevented the industry from using AI-based techniques, since it was difficult to convince people that such techniques can actually produce a return on investment. On the contrary, in recent years industrial AI has established itself as a systematic discipline, which focuses on the development, validation and implementation of various algorithms based on artificial intelligence for industrial applications with sustainable performance.
In this speech the role of artificial intelligence in Industry 4.0 will be discussed. In addition, some case studies will be presented in order to show how AI can add value to business processes.
