This article presents the potential of using AI to reduce plastic use and waste in the final product and packaging. Product design is an expensive proposition, and often engineers lack the time or motivation to wring as much waste from their proposed products as possible. This is where artificial Intelligence (AI) can play a vital role. It can use the huge archives of data generated in the past during product development and manufacturing, analyzing it to identify weaknesses and areas for improvement.
