Who’s scared of artificial intelligence? These human experts weigh in on how AI will affect supply chain management in the coming years, with answers ranging from “cataclysmic” to “game changing” to “meh.”
Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a pivotal role in understanding the modern supply chain and guarding against disruptions. Probabilistic Bayesian modeling, cutting-edge network optimizations, faster Monte Carlo simulations, game theory, intelligent utilization of generative AI and large language models, and translating human knowledge into math are essential to respond to supply chain demands.
Senior Manager and AI Captain, Data and Artificial Intelligence
We are increasingly becoming pilots in an AI cockpit—in supply chain management and virtually all fields. We need to get used to this. This change is touching all areas of supply chain management.
Chief Product Officer
AI will transform supply chain management by enhancing demand forecasting, quality control, inventory management, risk assessment, and cybersecurity. This shift toward proactive optimization will underpin efficient decision-making in supply chain management.
