Digitization Today — A Conversation with Jon Sobel of Sight Machine

At the 2024 edition of the North American Manufacturing Excellence Summit series we sat down with Jon Sobel, the CEO and cofounder of Sight Machine, to talk what digital transformation really means to manufacturers today. For years we have been having conversations about the power of data, what it can mean to get it from the plant floor in real time, how to analyze and understand it, and the impact those insights can have throughout a manufacturing organization. Very little of this is a new idea anymore, but so much work still needs to be done to realize the full potential of Industry 4.0. Where are we today? What are we good at, and what are we still struggling to accomplish? What comes next, and what are we doing to actually get there? In this conversation we talk about Digitization in the here and now with real insights into what manufacturers are doing, what they are trying, the questions they should be asking, and the things they are learning about to move their projects and their companies forward. Give it a listen!
