Georgia AI Manufacturing (GA-AIM) Technology Corridor

Friday, February 11, 2022 (12:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (EST)


We cordially invite you to join us for an Industry Listening Day scheduled for February 11th 2022, as we compete to realize the establishment of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Manufacturing Pilot Facility and the establishment of the AI Technology Corridor as part of EDA’s Build Back Better Regional Challenge (BBBRC). This will be a great opportunity to listen and learn from our industry partners regarding your technical, education and workforce challenges you face in realizing Manufacturing 4.0 and how Artificial Intelligence can serve as an enabler. AI enabled manufacturing will play a significant role in the efficiency, growth and long term sustainability of advanced manufacturing in the state of Georgia and the Southeast region.

Below is the agenda which will drive our discussion as well as the registration link. There will be two break out sessions. One will focus on technology while and the other on education and workforce training. Please indicate your preference.
