What are the painpoints and the root causes of stress within the context of Industry 4.0? Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe collaborated with Unismart, within the co-innovation project Contamination Lab, an opportunity for young talents to turn their creativity and ideas into innovative solutions. Within this project, five students with very different backgrounds embraced the challenge introduced from Konica Minolta to them, to identify new solutions for digitising manufacturing.
And another conference on AI? On the 18–19th April, I took part in AI Expo Global, an event hosted at the Olympia National, London, in which more than 10,000 attendees discussed not only AI and Business Intelligence, but also topics like IoT, Big Data & Analytics and the emergence of blockchain
At Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe we keep focusing on Artificial Intelligence, especially with an interest on applications for future workplaces, digital healthcare and digital manufacturing. After the AI Summit of New York during which we presented Cognitive Hub, we have just launched a research topic dedicated to the Workplace of the Future within the open access journal ‘Frontiers’, and in few days, our Executive Director and Deputy CTO Dennis Curry will take part in the AI Expo Global.
