AI and Machine Learning for Supply Chain – Into the Future


It’s 2021! and we want to contemplate the future of technology and how it will change our world.
Oh yes, there are those usual outsized proclamations that AI and machine learning will provide close to $3 trillion of savings in 2021 – that’s right now.

How do we prepare and take advantage of AI and Machine Learning? This new report AI and Machine Learning for Supply Chain – Into the Future specially addresses organizational professional and technical preparedness. Even if you are on the bleeding edge of innovation, there is much to do. Whatever your role in the supply chain, there is much to learn.
