In this episode I interview Anna-Katrina Shedletsky, the CEO of Instrumental which is bringing data, machine learning, and intelligence to the assembly line. Manufacturing is an old industry that has been resistant to change and new technologies, even as the products it builds have gotten more complex. That is changing as factories are considering new technologies a necessity to stay competitive and productive. Data will be the key to this innovation. Products like the Instrumental System will enable factories and the brands that build in them to collect data that was not available before and to use algorithms to find defects the moment they happen on the assembly line.
