Earlier this month, Gateway Technical College held a conference on advanced manufacturing.
“The future of industrial artificial intelligence will share the workplace and redefine the knowledge and skills required in the global competition for jobs,” said Jay Lee, senior vice chairman for Foxconn’s Industrial Internet and the conference's keynote speaker. “Gateway and Foxconn are partnering to provide career paths that support an advanced manufacturing ecosystem.”
Lee also noted that Gateway has been at the forefront of Manufacturing 4.0 — the next generation of production training — and has already begun training people to fill jobs in this new type of manufacturing. He stressed the importance of training people who will become valuable, knowledgeable employees in the new manufacturing process.
