Now more than ever, the safety of employees is a top priority for businesses. In manufacturing facilities, there are often a lot of moving parts, people and departments, so safety is even more critical to ensure operations run smoothly. In July's Back to Business with AI virtual event, David McCall of Tyson Foods shared how AI has impacted them in a positive way and how safety has remained top priority in their manufacturing plants.
You can view McCall's complete session in the video above or catch a recap below.
With the use of IoT sensors and ML technology, manufacturing plants can monitor equipment that may be deteriorating, which could lead to dangerous situations for plant workers. By building models off of incoming data, this technology can be essentially "trained" to understand what good equipment looks like and what equipment defects look like, in real-time. Anomalies around electric equipment, for example, may include amperage pole or temperature changes that indicate there is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately.
