New report: Generative AI in industrial design and engineering

Generative AI has the potential to transform industrial design and engineering, making it more important than ever for leaders in those industries to stay ahead of the game. That’s why MIT Technology Review has produced a new research report that highlights the potential benefits — and pitfalls — of this new technology.

The report includes two case studies from leading industrial and tech companies that are already applying generative AI to their work, and a bunch of takeaways and best practices from industry leaders. It is now available to download for $195.
