FOOD SUPPLY CHAIN – An Incredibly Easy Method That Works For All
16 May 2019
A few sciences are changing our lives in more ways than we could
have imagined a few decades ago. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the
forefront of these. Although a few decades old, it has received a huge
boost of late with the emergence of the cloud, which is set to help it
overcome one of its biggest stumbling blocks, namely space, the added
power of computing, and wider methods of algorithms.
While one would like to associate AI with robotics, this is taking a
very limited view of a topic that has unimaginable potency. Food supply
is one of the areas in which AI can make dramatic changes. The areas of
the food supply chain in which AI can make terrific changes for the better include:
- Robotic planting
- Harvesting systems through self-driving trucks
- Inspection systems
- Robotic pick and place loading systems
- Robotic grading systems
- Food processing systems
- Pick and place
- Inventory control and other related areas.
Given that world of opportunities that could open up with AI in the
food supply chain, it makes a lot of sense to learn about these in
detail under expert guidance. This is what a webinar from
Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional training for all the
areas of regulatory compliance, is offering.
Compliance4All brings the highly illustrious, senior Quality System
