For manufacturing, the combination of embedded machine learning and the Internet of Things devices is a game-changer at every level. From materials to production, shipping and receiving, the next five years will be driven by connected, energy-efficient intelligent devices that can do more. A lot more. IoT connectivity, coupled with embedded ML, will not only create better automation but will also give life to a whole new class of business processes. And surprisingly, it is going to get a lot simpler to program, update, and manage. With better brains and learning capabilities, powered by ML at the edge, the IoT is finally going to live up to its original expectations and transform manufacturing and other industries from the ground and up.
