The US lags behind European and Asian competitors in using artificial intelligence for manufacturing, new research from Google Cloud has found. And the search giant’s cloud arm is making a big bet that companies will plunge into AI in an effort to catch up as COVID-19 slowly recedes.

But that is changing as the nation rebounds from the COVID-19 economic downturn. Google Cloud believes US companies will embrace its connected-device technology and vast data sets to bring more AI to American factory floors. The data and connected-devices tools can be used to create automated processes and improve production in key ways.
