“AI is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs” (Alan Turing). Usually, Artificial Intelligence concerns getting computers to do tasks that would normally require human intelligence.
Automation is the creation of technology and its application to control and monitor the production and delivery of various goods and services and it performs tasks that previously were exclusively involving humans.
Smart Manufacturing is the ability to solve existing and future problems via an open infrastructure that allows solutions to be implemented at the speed of business while creating superior value. Systems are fully-integrated and respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions.
Smart cities incorporate information and communication technologies (ICT) to optimize the efficiency of city operations and performances of urban services. They also establish a more direct and rapid connection with both citizens and the network of infrastructures.
Green technologies have the intent to mitigate or possibly even reverse the effects of human activity on the environment. They do apply to both the production processes and supply chains as well. At the same time can be implemented in terms of new and innovative way of energy production which try to have smaller impacts on the environment.
A health technology is the application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem and in general improve the quality of lives.
Based on biology, biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. Most of the times it refers to the use of microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts, or biological substances such as enzymes, to perform specific industrial or manufacturing processes.
Food Technology deals with the techniques and principles involved in processing and preserving the food substances. It is particularly helpful in manufacturing safe, wholesome and nutritious food products.
