A massive transformation is underway with the convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cloud infrastructure and processes, advanced Robotics, and IoT enabled Digital Twinning.  A digital twin represents a cyber-world duplicate of a real-world object, which can be virtual any type of object ranging from industrial equipment to a physical product.  The combination of AI, Cloud Robotics, Industrial IoT technologies, and Digital Twinning is poised to transform manufacturing to an entirely new level in terms of operational oversight, control, and innovation. 
 
Both industrial processes as well as the entire product life-cycle for many industries will be transformed as the distance between production and usage is significantly minimized through improved visibility, monitoring, and feedback.  Combined with cloud technologies and the “as a service” model, these technologies are enabling virtually every industry to completely rethink, redesign, and redeploy products as value-added services.
