AI, or artificial intelligence, has already infiltrated many parts of food and drinks production but it has only really scratched the surface in terms of its potential, according to the latest edition of just-food’s FUTURES service.

From supply chain management, waste management, predictive maintenance and scheduled ordering to weather predictions, food safety compliance and new product development, machine learning is reshaping businesses, the report, Machine Dreams: The Future of AI in Food and Beverage Operations, explains.

In the latest edition of FUTURES – a service providing a series of free-to-read digital reports, designed to help food and beverage firms plan for the future – we explore the megatrends behind the growing use of AI in food and drinks operations, we look at how it’s likely to develop in the next five years, and we assess what food and drinks companies can start to do now.

The use of AI in food and drinks manufacturing falls under what has widely been dubbed the fourth manufacturing revolution, or Industry 4.0. 

As FUTURES reveals, that revolution is already happening. Download the report for free here.
