How Artificial Intelligence Is Empowering Warehouse Automation


The warehouse industry is changing. Labor shortages are driving AMR adoption in warehouse and logistics environments, and artificial intelligence (AI) empowers warehouse automation. AI-powered algorithms optimize order-picking routes, considering factors such as product characteristics, picking frequency, and real-time order priorities. By intelligently sequencing orders and optimizing travel paths, warehouses can improve order accuracy, increase throughput, and reduce labor costs. AI allows AMRs to make decisions autonomously but without sacrificing safety. In this 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs, attendees will learn how companies can achieve significant productivity improvements by harnessing AI for warehouse management.

Topics include:

  • How AI is driving modern warehouse success
  • Tangible benefits of AI today
  • Vital strategies for harnessing AI to enhance productivity and accuracy
  • Warehouse robotics and embodied AI
  • Real-world applications of AI that have transformed inventory management
  • The outlook for AI in warehouse automation

An audience Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
