InstaDeep spotlights AI supply chain innovation as Generation Logistics sponsor
September 27, 2022
InstaDeep is proud to be a launch sponsor of Generation Logistics, a first of its kind UK national campaign to reframe the logistics industry for the future and recruit the next generation of talent.
A key focus for the campaign will be to demonstrate how the sector, which is critical to the way we live, is at the vanguard of innovation and technology – harnessing artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, autonomous vehicles and the decarbonisation of the supply chain.
As part of the campaign, InstaDeep team members will share ways they are helping drive innovation in the sector by applying AI to complex business problems. In the logistics space, London-headquartered InstaDeep develops decision-making AI systems for cargo/container loading, routing, scheduling, fleet management and more.
Karim Beguir, InstaDeep CEO and Co-Founder, commented: “InstaDeep looks forward to engaging with the next generation of logistics leaders in a national conversation about the future of the supply chain. From smarter cargo-loading to automated scheduling, artificial intelligence can help make the supply chain more efficient and resilient while also reducing carbon emissions.“
An example of InstaDeep’s work for the logistics sector is DeepPack, an AI system that leverages reinforcement learning – teaching itself to respond and improve based on experience – to enable logistics and cargo operators maximise the space and the efficiency of containers, pallets, and unit load devices, also known as ULDs.
Generation Logistics is an industry-led and UK Government-backed initiative tasked with increasing awareness and finding the next generation of logistics industry talent.
Working in collaboration with companies and trade associations from across the sector, the aim is to challenge perceptions and demonstrate the breadth and diversity of the career opportunities available.
As a sponsor, InstaDeep will highlight the opportunities that AI is creating within the logistics sector by sharing videos, events and job opportunities.
