EXOR's New Smart Factory Blends 5G, AI With IoT Part test bed, part live factory, the Italian facility is showcasing the tangible benefits of Industry 4.0 and digital manufacturing.  
The Fabrication Masters of Industrial IoT The best visionaries have both the ability to imagine exciting futures and extensive experiences to clearly assess the past. Jonathan Kim of Armada America brings both to this podcast that looks at the outlook and realities of outfitting machine shop floors with better automation through artificial intelligence (AI). Find out when and how AI can help make both authoritative and autonomous decisions based on IoT data coming from the factory floor.    
ADLINK Enables Automated Arc-Welding Defect Detection with Industrial Machine Vision Edge Solution Scalable solution built with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit helps detect porosity defects in real time.   
How John Deere Taps IIoT to Boost Weld Integrity Partnering with Intel, the farming equipment manufacturer combines AI, machine vision, and advanced processing to identify 'porosity' in equipment welds on its manufacturing line. The success of this pilot program could open the doors for integrating the defect detection solution in John Deere’s 52 factories around the world.  
4 Ways Virtual Reality Can Be a Game-Changer for the Workplace Once the provenance of science fiction movies, virtual reality has gone mainstream. Today, virtual reality is no longer limited to gaming, as organizations are using the technology in the workplace to support several important functions, including training and collaboration.   
Building Management Systems Bring Service Opportunities to Integrators The increased demands for improved sustainability and energy efficiency highlight the importance of automated building control systems. Real-time data shows equipment and system performance and offers a path for maintenance service contracts.  
Service Providers Rely on IoT to Predict and Avoid Data Center Failures The increase of edge computing power enables AI and deep learning applications, which connect back to cloud-based servers. With the rise of AI-based applications and cloud computing, data centers need to increase redundancy. New technologies are enabling predictive analytics to ensure individual servers and data centers as a whole operate with high efficiency.  
Getting a Grip: Robots Gain Sensitivity with Smart Touch Receptors Companies are developing tactile sensitivity for robotic devices, enabling them to “feel” an object. The ability to integrate these capabilities will allow robots to act more like humans, which can change how machines can be used in healthcare, retail, and manufacturing.  
Synthetic Muscles Bring Robotic Powerlifters to the Manufacturing Floor Advances in soft robotics are giving way to synthetic muscles that can change how industrial robots operate. Soft muscular systems will enable robots to support humans in lifting heavy items and make it safer for humans and machines to work side by side.  
IIoT and AI Provide the Fuel for Industrial Efficiency at Rolls-Royce Rolls-Royce's industrial IoT initiatives have created a big, new challenge for itself: managing the data derived from 70 trillion data points. To do that, it turned to artificial intelligence and is now sharing a framework and toolkit to help other manufacturers apply—and trust—AI.
