Almost every industry is benefitting from robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence technologies including automotive, defense, healthcare, logistics, finance, and consumer goods. 

The manufacturing industry has been embracing technology and southeast Michigan’s companies have been on the cutting edge of developing these advanced technologies.

These industries need talented individuals. However, there is an insufficient local talent pool to keep up with demand in these areas.

The American Center for Innovation will be fully equipped with tooling, fabrication, electronics, and computer labs, software and related technologies, learning spaces, team and individual workspaces, research, and competition spaces. ACI is building a unique, accessible, diverse, and inclusive model of community partnership together with community residents, schools, local family service non-profits, governments, academia, and businesses to provide positive impacts, increased individual growth, and economic advancement for underserved residents and the community.
