Manufacturers and brand owners navigating through the complexities of AI are left with a few key questions: How can AI reduce errors and automate manual tasks? Is algorithm training expensive or complicated? Can I keep existing infrastructure and processes?

Jonathan Hou discusses hybrid AI, a unique approach that merges the best of computer vision and machine learning to address these key concerns and allow manufacturers to deploy advanced end-to-end quality inspection.

He examines how AI addresses critical quality challenges in the consumer goods, print and packaging, and parts manufacturing markets to increase profitability and reduce risk. Hou outlines hybrid AI training and deployment strategies for established automated inspection systems, as well as opportunities for adding decision support to manual tasks. To close the session, he presents a case study on how a consumer brand is deploying hybrid AI today while also preparing for more advanced Industry 4.0 and IIoT automation.
