learning system to detect what process a per- son is trying to execute and immediately bring resources to bear, without requiring the user to be adept at search or meta-tagging,” said Boyd. “This represents an unprecedented op- portunity for humans and machines to effec- tively collaborate towards a common goal.” As the corrugated industry continues to face the challenges and opportunities of E-commerce-driven growth and the need for more sustainable processes, Boyd sees op- portunities for OEMS, box-plants, and suppli- ers to drive ROI, enhance productivity, and maximize process improvements. “Every organization of any reasonable size is spending time thinking about the transfor- mative powers of machine learning and the corrugated industry is no exception,” said Boyd. “In this era of accelerating complexity and accelerating demand for corrugated pack- aging, prior methods are proving quickly to be insufficient. Fortunately, new tools like ma- chine learning are emerging as powerful aids to augment our past methods and help auto- mate some of these daunting tasks.” Boyd’s keynote will discuss methods for combining machine learning technologies with sources of data, knowledge, and experts to amplify business intelligence to ultimate- ly drive value across the corrugated supply chain. His goal is for attendees to leave with a better understanding of Machine Learning, how Machine Learning can be applied, and the need to develop a Machine Learning strategy to improve business outcomes. “It’s an exciting time for the corrugated in- dustry and I’m looking forward to meeting with and learning from the industry’s talented pro- fessionals in Orlando,” said Boyd.
