New AI Strategy Board to Lead AI Initiatives for the Association for Advancing AutomationJuly 8, 2021
The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) has created a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology Strategy Board of leading AI experts, part of a major initiative to promote education and adoption of the applications of AI in automation industries. The new board places AI leadership at the same level as A3’s existing technology groups: robotics, vision and imaging, and motion control and motors.
“AI—in many shapes and forms—will be the stitching that weaves together a new age of industry,” says Jeff Burnstein, A3 president. “As the global trade group of the automation industry, we need to help prepare our members to seize this potential.”
The creation of the technology strategy board is the culmination of a 3-yr. effort to educate and inform automation leaders about the growing importance of AI. The board’s chairman is John Lizzi, executive leader--robotics at GE Research. Companies including Amazon, GE, Google, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Siemens and others have helped guide A3’s initiatives. Robert Huschka, A3’s vice president of education strategies, will serve as the association’s liaison to the new board.
