Inside Quality Digest Live for Sept. 22, 2017

Published: Monday, September 25, 2017 - 12:00

Our Sept. 22, 2017, episode of QDL was decidely techie, covering artifical intelligence, the internet of things, Manufacturing Day, and a cool color-matching tool that uses your smart phone.

Manufacturing Day preview

There is a lot happening on Manufacturing Day, which falls on Oct. 6 this year, including Quality Digest’s Virtual Test & Measurement Expo.

“Is the Internet of Things Sending Us Back to the Middle Ages?”

You may think you own your phone, or your quarter-million dollar harvester... but do you really?

“Artificial Intelligence—Salvation or Skynet?”

We are witnessing the marriage of AI, ERP, and robotics. Is it conceivable that there may be unintended consequences when robots are building and repairing robots, and AI begets and programs AI?

Tech Corner: X-Rite’s Color-Eye

We have all tried (and failed) to purchase a specific color item online, only to find out that rose is not rose, even if it looks like rose online. There's an app for that.


Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Fri., Sept. 29, 2017. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
