Technology Record - Issue 32: Spring 2024

40 EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW today, helping every employee across the manufacturing enterprise – including those responsible for product design, engineering, and factory, supply chain, service and business operations – to be more productive, creative, efficient and innovative. We’re also making it easy for any organisation to build and extend AI capabilities into new and existing applications and copilot solutions by using the same open ecosystem stack and AI services Microsoft used to build our own copilots. We are working with leading manufacturing ecosystem partners such as AVEVA, Cognite, Tulip, PTC, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Sight Machine, and many others, to bring copilot experiences to life. One of the biggest areas of opportunity for AI is within product development. Bringing new and innovative products to market is harder than ever before, with things like competitive pressure, new customer expectations and regulatory requirements.
