CIMdata 2019 PLM Market & Industry Forum

“Augmented Intelligence: Applications Across the Product Lifecycle”

Artificialintelligence (AI) has been the “next big thing” for decades. The benefits ofMoore’s Law and advances in AI and machine learning have increasingly made thatpromise a reality. For 2019, CIMdata’s global Product Lifecycle Management(PLM) Market & Industry Forum series will focus on applications of thesetechnologies in PLM and adjacent enterprise software markets that areaugmenting human skills, bringing data and advanced analytics to the point ofwork to make humans, and the processes they deploy, more effective.

In this industry leading forum, CIMdata will explore the applications of augmented intelligence across the product lifecycle. CIMdata believes that the work to date barely scratches the surface of what is possible. While humans might not be replaced,CIMdata agrees with the approach of many leading solution providers that this machine intelligence will not replace us, but will augment us, helping us to quickly make the best possible decisions. With these talks CIMdata hopes to kick start the conversation on engineering intelligent systems that can serve our needs and extend our capabilities.
