Yesterday I attended the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport’s 15th Student Conference at the University of Greenwich. The theme of the conference was Artificial Intelligence in Supply Chains. The day included presentations from ASC Associates, Unipart Rail, LexisNexis, and the University of Sheffield.
I gave a presentation on how machine learning can help coordinate the supply chain.
My key observations of the day are:
- Artificial Intelligence and especially machine learning applications are becoming more and more prevalent in supply chain applications.
- We need people well versed in data analytics, programming, and robotics and automation.
- The applications of IoT are limitless: descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive, here to help us make our supply chains more efficient.
