ARM Institute Convenes Experts for Continuing AI Discovery Workshop

ARM Institute Convenes Experts for Continuing AI Discovery Workshop

The ARM Institute’s strength comes from our ecosystem of nearly 300 member organizations spanning government, industry, and academia. Our priorities and our activities are informed by these experts – the approach to building our roadmap for artificial intelligence (AI) applications in robotics for manufacturing is no different.

AI can be a key enabler for the U.S. manufacturing sector. However, to quickly and strategically make an impact, we need input from across the sector – from users to researchers.

Unique to the ARM Institute’s approach is the collaboration between government, industry, and academia. This approach allows the ARM Institute to find the most impactful pathways to reinvigorate the U.S. industrial base.

So far, the workshop has generated more than 300 individual ideas that will be mapped to the core AI technology capabilities critical to advancement of robotic manufacturing. Ultimately, this will inform the institute’s overall technology strategy.

Participants in our workshop include representatives from the following organizations:


  • U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
  • U.S. Army CCDC Ground Vehicle Systems Center
  • Office of Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Sustainment)
  • National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
  • National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST)


  • Ready Robotics
  • Siemens
  • Boeing
  • Premier Automation
  • Black Swan Textiles
  • Spirit AeroSystems
  • Aris Technology
  • Yaskawa

Academia and Research:

  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • University of Southern California
  • Southwest Research Institute
  • MIT Lincoln Laboratory
