VF is utilizing a groundbreaking form of automation—by way of robots—to heighten a safe work environment for associates that increases productivity three-fold.
A crew of 11 robots have joined VF associates at a distribution center (DC) in Martinsville, VA, for a pilot program that launched in August 2020. The bots, manufactured by Locus Robotics, create an ergonomic workspace and help support associates by increasing social distancing in response to COVID-19. With health and safety more critical than ever and productivity up 63%, VF is looking to bring bots to DCs throughout the globe.
The future of mobile AI is being led by talented women across the board, that being in the creation of new software, hardware or in deep in the weeds of research. Here at Qualcomm we depend on our women engineers to fuel the most cutting-edge solutions we offer. So, earlier this month we set down with MIT Tech Review in a discussion about the importance of women driving AI innovation and explored some of the latest advancements brought through their work. Advancements ranging from our AI Model Efficiency Toolkit (AIMET) to Duolingo’s birdbrain model were topics explored in depth.
