In this episode, Nick speaks with Greta Cutulenco. Greta is the co-founder and CEO of Acerta Analytics, a Kitchener/Waterloo-based artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning company. Their focus is providing AI solutions for manufacturing companies looking to improve quality control. In addition to her work with Acerta, Greta is also a sitting member of the Board of Directors for the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA).
AI and machine learning work by analyzing large datasets and letting the program decide for itself what course of action to take. This requires a lot of accurate data. As Greta points out in the episode, the automotive industry was a natural adopter of this technology because of the scale of their manufacturing process. However, any operation generating large sets of data can potentially benefit from AI and machine learning.
It’s a complex subject but Greta explains it well. Have a listen.
