In the future, artificial intelligence will be used in decision-making processes, according to Danny Peretz, head of dairy division operations at Israeli food manufacturer Tnuva. Peretz spoke with Lior Akavia, CEO of Tel Aviv-based industrial AI startup Seebo Interactive Ltd., at Calcalist's Industry and Economy conference, held in Tel Aviv Wednesday in collaboration with Israeli oil refining company Bazan Group.
“We believe that the earlier we adopt innovative technologies, the more competitive edge we will have in the market,” Peretz said. This is where the partnership with Seebo comes in, he said. With all the effort Tnuva put in, the company realized it will have reached the glass ceiling of the human brain, Peretz added.
Founded in 2012, Seebo develops industrial artificial intelligence-based technology that allows industrial manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively turn existing machinery into smart, connected systems that report their health and usage data.

Manufacturing teams use Seebo's technology to answer two main questions, Akavia explained. The first is why procedural failures happen, and the second is when they are likely to happen.. “Our customers are not data scientists, but rather factory staff and process engineers,” he said.
