    We are pleased to announce our first event of 2024 - a round table discussion on what it means to implement Industry 4.0 in the workplace with our host, Generac Power Systems.

    Artificial intelligence (AI) seems to have captured our attention, yet many of us are still trying to figure out Industry 4.0 and all that it entails.  What is it that you are trying to achieve?  Where does one begin?

    In the 3rd quarter of 2023, the WIoT Council put together a committee made up of members who were interested in moving the needle forward for companies in Wisconsin in the smart manufacturing space. We sent out a survey to gather your feedback. 

    The purpose of this event is to establish a framework for organizing a series of workshops throughout 2024.

    While this event is Free, space is limited so be sure to register early to secure your spot.
