Factories of the Future: Digital, Distributed, Democratized Manufacturing

What will American manufacturing look like in five years? Ten years? Twenty? 

How will emerging technologies from nanotech and organ printing to artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things change the nature of products and work?

What's America's strategy for creating and sustaining manufacturing jobs, preserving our technological edge, and maintaining global manufacturing leadership? 

MForesight's 2017 National Summit will convene some of the nation's foremost manufacturing experts, business leaders, and decision-makers to explore these crucial questions. 

While manufacturing was once dismissed as "dirty, dull, and dangerous," there's growing recognition that the sector is essential for our economic future. Waves of change—including the Maker Movement, 3D printing, accessible computer aided engineering tools, new knowledge-sharing platforms, and networked operational technology—are transforming the manufacturing sector. Factories are already on a path to be "digital, distributed, and democratized" in the future.
