Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Supply Chain & logistics is disrupting the industry as companies can use it to automate their processes so people can focus on more pressing issues to streamline and improve their company’s bottom line. Both small and large enterprises are dabbling in innovations ranging from machine learning to robotics.
AI will not remain a novelty for long. It will soon become a necessity. The performance, accessibility, and costs of AI are now more favourable than ever before thanks to major advances in big data, algorithmic development, connectivity, cloud computing and processing power.
