Automation Alley, a regional technology and manufacturing business association in Troy, today announced a new interactive, multidisciplinary global conference focused on Industry 4.0 technology that will take place in downtown Detroit this fall.
The conference, entitled Integr8, will focus on the eight technologies currently disrupting the manufacturing industry: cybersecurity, big data and artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing, advanced materials, robotics, the Industrial Internet of Things, cloud computing and modeling, simulation, and visualization.
The event will feature breakfast and lunch keynote presentations, a technology expo, and breakout sessions focused on advancements in manufacturing, overcoming obstacles to adoption, and financial ROI and blueprints for successful Industry 4.0 implementation.
Speakers have not been announced, but will include renowned manufacturing experts and industry thought leaders.
“As Michigan’s leading technology and manufacturing business association, Automation Alley is proud to present this one-of-a-kind global gathering, which comes at a pivotal time for the manufacturing industry,” says Tom Kelly, Automation Alley’s executive director.
“Our goal in developing Integr8 was to create a global event centered around the people and technologies shaping our future. Integr8 is about Industry 4.0 education, but it’s also about creating actionable intelligence that manufacturers can take back to their factory floors.”
Integr8 will take place on Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center in Detroit. Registration opens today and information can be found here.
