How AI can solve manufacturing's waste problem
Earth Day inspires many consumers to examine their recycling, composting and consumption. That’s all good, but it isn’t where the heart of the waste problem lies.
Steve is Founder and CEO of Noodle.ai. The intention of Noodle.ai is to apply advanced Data Science to create a world without waste. 93% of the world’s waste is from industrial sources – wasted inventory, wasted distribution, wasted production, wasted materials. Noodle.ai provides full stack Artificial Intelligence products focused on this waste – how companies make things and move things. Noodle.ai products include Vulcan (Manufacturing AI Suite) and Athena (Supply Chain AI Suite). Noodle.ai is the subject of a 2019 case authored by Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Prior to Noodle.ai, Steve was responsible for all implementations of Watson worldwide for IBM Global Business Services. His leadership as founder and CEO of Infosys Consulting is taught in case studies written by Stanford and Dartmouth business schools. He grew Infosys Consulting from startup to over 30,000 people. Prior to Infosys, Steve was a Senior Partner at Deloitte Consulting. His career began doing classified projects in the intelligence community focused on electronic warfare, satellite communications, and applying neural networks to detect illegal activity.
