TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, March 20, 2024 / — SMARTECH presented a keynote address on the Revolutionary Impact of AI for the Wood Industry at the Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PELICE) on March 15 in Atlanta, Georgia to great acclaim. The talk, given by SMARTECH’s AI Director Oren Yahav, was received with vivid interest by wood-based panel manufacturers and vendors to the sector.

At a time when Artificial Intelligence breakthroughs are capturing the public’s attention, the opportunities for early adopters in manufacturing have never been starker. AI tools for manufacturing bring improved productivity, lower costs, more consistent stability, and a range of other benefits that will give adopters a structural edge versus the competition. Following further SMARTECH conversations with PELICE participants, the prospects for additional business growth powered by AI was a common theme.

Oren Yahav, AI Director at SMARTECH said “The enthusiasm in the crowd was palpable. There were many follow-up questions after the talk which were a clear indication that AI is of immense interest with a promising set of opportunities. We look forward to supporting many of these manufacturers as they embrace closed-loop process control.”

SMARTECH is the first company to offer AI-based closed-loop real-time process control to wood-based panel manufacturers under the Autonomous Manewfacturing™ framework.
