OP-ED – Robots and artificial intelligence promise to improve the way we sort and recover waste. This will not be enough, however: we must also rethink the way we produce and consume. On 18 January 2019, the French government signed the “Waste Transformation and Recovery” industry contract, which makes digital, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies a cornerstone of the industry’s global competitiveness.
Like many other industries, the packaging sector constantly adapts to market requirements. Changes are being influenced by factors such as regulation, skills shortages and digital transformation. To turn these challenges into opportunities, innovative companies are increasingly relying on solutions such as human-robot collaboration and the use of artificial intelligence to manage intensive data processing.
