5.5.1 Artificial Intelligence 5.5.2 4D Printing 5.5.3 3D Printing 5.5.4 Robotics 5.5.5 Big Data 5.5 What Will Be Introduced in 2022 2022 will see the introduction of several new technology trends that will transform the way we work and live, breaking away from the traditional boundaries between man and machine, desk and internet-of-things (IIoT) devices, human and software, and traditional craft and factory approaches to automated manufacturing processes. Artificial Intelligence will impact every industry from healthcare to retail to education, while Industry 4.0 is a broad new term that encompasses artificial intelligence, big data, Internet of Things (IIoT), robotics, and other digital transformation themes relevant to manufacturing and industrial automation systems manufacturers seeking to stay on top of the curve or enter an emerging market segment where AI is already playing a major role
What will be introduced in 2022?
AI and robotics, in turn, will change the way we work and live, impacting every industry and profession. This will range from robotics and automation to maintenance and service, to healthcare and education. With AI, manufacturing companies can expect to see the development of cognitive manufacturing systems, machine learning, and robotics with AI capability. With cognitive manufacturing, humans can shape manufactured goods to meet our ideas and preferences, while with robotics, machines can interact with humans as fellow workers, with capabilities far beyond those of traditional production lines. Advanced manufacturing technologies will also have a major role to play in 2022, with big data and the Internet of Things (IIoT) expected to disrupt nearly every industry, including manufacturing.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is on the rise, and it is already having a huge impact on business. AI is a branch of computer science that focuses on creating computer programs that can perform tasks that humans cannot. With the right combination of AI and computer science, machines can perform tasks that humans can only imagine, outperforming humans by leaps and bounds. Artificial intelligence is becoming more and more widespread in business, with voice control, natural language understanding, and computer vision being used increasingly often in business-critical systems. Robotics is one area where AI is finding use, with a variety of commercial offerings now offering AI-based automation. Beyond 2022, AI will be a more common term in the industry, and robotics and automation will become more advanced with the development of AI-based cognitive manufacturing systems and machine learning.
4D printing is a new manufacturing technology that can fabricate physical objects from materials with no human involvement. The first phase of this technology involved being able to extrude materials like plastic, metal, and glass in real-time, but now manufacturers are exploring other applications, including fabricating tissue for transplants and even prosthetic limbs. 4D printing has the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing sector by allowing manufacturers to quickly produce physical objects from model parts or CAD designs. 4D printing is expected to be a key technology in 2022, with applications ranging from additive manufacturing (where parts are created layer by layer) to subtractive manufacturing (where objects are made from metallic powders). Beyond 2022, additive manufacturing will continue to be the dominant manufacturing technology, while 4D printing will evolve to become a more versatile technique, with materials and functionality expanding with each printing.
3D printing is a type of manufacturing technology that uses computer software to create three-dimensional objects from digital models. The technology is considered to be in its infancy, with only a few hundred million devices sold in 2016, and it is expected to remain relatively niche. However, with the increased use of 3D printing, manufacturing will be able to rapidly produce physical objects from digital models. Additionally, 3D printing will have an impact on other manufacturing processes, with additive manufacturing being used to fabricate models, while subtractive manufacturing creates physical objects from powdery materials. Beyond 2022, 3D printing will remain a niche technology, with applications in product design and artistic creation, but will expand to cover a broader range of activities as more manufacturers create 3D models for their products.
Robotics is another field where AI and computer vision are finding applications. Robots have been used to perform repetitive tasks since the beginning of time, and they will continue to be used in 2022 to perform repetitive tasks, with robots being used to perform repetitive tasks in manufacturing, mining, and other industries. With the advent of AI and computer vision, robotics is set to become even more advanced, with robots being used to perform repetitive tasks with greater autonomy and human-like behavior. Beyond 2022, robotics will be an ever-present presence in manufacturing, with robots being used to perform repetitive tasks by advanced automation systems.
Big data is one of the most discussed emerging technologies in manufacturing. Companies are now exploring the benefits of big data, with a focus on operational efficiency and risk management. There is potential for big data in all industries, with manufacturers using IoT devices to collect and store large amounts of data. However, the mining of raw data for particular value is expected to remain a key activity, while big data analytics will be used to discover patterns and make informed decisions. Beyond 2022, big data will continue to be a significant player in manufacturing, with applications in operational management, risk analysis, and the discovery of new product insights.
What Will Be Introduced in 2022?
Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence (AI) and industrial control systems (DCSs) will be the foundation for the next industrial revolution, and we can expect the number of AI-based industrial robots to far outpace the number of human workers in 2022. AI and robotics, in turn, will change the way we work and live, impacting every industry and profession. This will range from robotics and automation to maintenance and service, to healthcare and education. With AI, manufacturing companies can expect to see the development of cognitive manufacturing systems, machine learning, and robotics with AI capability. With cognitive manufacturing, humans can shape manufactured goods to meet our ideas and preferences, while with robotics, machines can interact with humans as fellow workers, with capabilities far beyond those of traditional production lines. IIOT will allow manufacturers to manage anytime, anywhere manufacturing processes and optimize processes to reduce costs and improve quality.
