Georgia Tech Research Corporation
Coalition Lead Applicant: Georgia Tech Research Corporations
Project Title: Georgia AI Manufacturing Pilot Facility and Technology Corridor
Region (applicant-defined): Georgia
Cluster Sector(s): Information Technology; Advanced Manufacturing
The coalition, led by the Georgia Tech Research Corporations, would support an artificial intelligence (AI) manufacturing cluster in Georgia by creating the "GA-AIM" initiative. The coalition aims to enable an equitable playing field as the global manufacturing sector becomes increasingly driven by AI. If provided implementation funding, the coalition proposes to address several critical elements in the Georgia manufacturing sector to improve the shared adoption of AI by providing an AI Manufacturing Pilot Facility to offset the costs of bringing AI capabilities to small businesses; workforce training to expand equitable access to Industry 4.0 jobs; and AI-impacted supply chain assistance to help rural manufacturers stay ahead of the technological curve. The coalition would also work with the Minority Business Development Administration to provide technical assistance to accelerate AI adoption in communities across the region.
