Jarda Neuhauser, General Manager of Saki Europe, joins panel debate on “AI and the role of Virtual Assist”

Hosted at APEX 2024 by Trevor Galbraith, Editor of Global SMT & Packaging, Jarda Neuhauser was invited to join the roundtable panel to discuss “AI and the role of Virtual Assist”. The skills shortage and the drive to rely less on human operators is driving the industry to develop new tools using AI to work in the background as a Virtual Assistant, reducing repetitive tasks and increasing throughput. Benefits for manufacturers and operators, implementation challenges of AI-based solutions, the role of data security, and instances where AI may not be the answer, are just some of the topics discussed during this live debate.
