Talk abstract: AI and complex industrial systems – a strategic view. GSK Consumer Healthcare have ambitious sustainability goals to transform our supply chain, driving efficiency and resilience during an unprecedented time of challenge for global supply chains. AI for optimisation and orchestration of complex industrial systems are among the most impactful, strategic applications of AI in Industry. Complex industrial systems are not just characterised by high number of degrees of freedom and non-trivial operational constraints. Relevant characteristics of these systems, such as overall efficiency and resilience, are modelled as collective or emergent phenomena. We will be discussing why the dynamically evolving field of research in complexity, optimisation and optimal management is critical in meeting strategic goals. We will illustrate the importance of these concepts with some real-world supply chain examples.
