Throughout the summer of 2022, the ARM Institute is completing a major, national survey to identify, prioritize the development of guidance, tools and strategies to help improve how manufactures implement and sustain Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) solutions for advanced manufacturing robotic systems.

Companies of all sizes often look to advance manufacturing techniques, such as AI/ML and robotics to improved quality, performance, and safety, but often don’t know how to start or maintain these capabilities. This national effort is intended to address these inhibiting factors and inform future investments.

This effort is being led by the ARM Institute’s Data for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Working Group (DAWG). The DAWG is working to help manufacturing companies of all sizes adopt and sustain artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for advanced robotic manufacturing systems. Through the development of tools, guidance, and strategies; the DAWG aspires to decrease the knowledge gap such that manufactures can better understand how to obtain, assess, and structure data vital to enabling use of AI for robotics in manufacturing.

To participate in this effort, register to take the survey using the button below. The survey will be sent to you soon to complete.

Register To Take Survey


1. Why should I participate in this survey?

Keeping your information anonymous, we will share the general results with the public. This will allow you to understand how your organization compares to others across the nation.

Additionally, this is a federally funded effort to advance the state of AI in robotics for manufacturing. Your answers may be used to inform future investments.

2. Who is the ARM Institute?

The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute is a Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) part of the Manufacturing USA Network and funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. As a national Institute, the ARM Institute strengthens U.S. manufacturing through innovations in advanced manufacturing technology, particularly robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), and prepare the workforce to work alongside these technologies. Working across industry, government, and academia, the ARM Institute leverages a robust ecosystem of 340+ organizations spanning industry, government, and academia.

3. How will my responses be used?

Your responses will be aggregated into a public report that will help to inform future investments in AI for robotic manufacturing systems. Your organization and name will not be published.

4. What organizations are part of the Data for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Working Group?

All organizations that participate in our Working Group are part of the ARM Institute membership and, as such, have signed a conflict of interest agreement to protect your organization’s information. Organizations that are represented on the Working Group include: Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), ARIS Technology, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), General Electric Research, Siemens Technology, and Ready Robotics.
