The Georgia AI Manufacturing (Georgia AIM) Technology Corridor will revolutionize the industrial economy of Georgia and the nation through the equitable development and deployment of talent and innovation in artificial intelligence (AI) across all manufacturing sectors. Georgia AIM will develop, promulgate, and implement a model for activating AI manufacturing, ensuring: (1) the engagement and participation of underserved populations and communities and (2) the resilience of U.S. manufacturing from future shocks and global competition.
The program officially launched with the first Georgia AIM All-Coalition Members Kickoff Meeting on October 6 - 7, 2022. Over 100 coalition members and industry partners attended the kickoff to discuss the Georgia AIM projects, participate in listening sessions, meet partners from around the state.
The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) will head up Project 2B: Technical Workforce Development. TCSG will launch AI manufacturing studios and create rural innovation incubators:

  • AI Semiconductor Manufacturing Studio (Georgia Piedmont Technical College)
  • AI-enhanced Robotic Manufacturing Studio (Central Georgia Technical College, serving Warner Robins Air Force Base)
  • Remote Plant Operations Studios to Automate Poultry Processing (Lanier and Southern Regional Technical Colleges- in partnership with Southwest Georgia Regional Commission)
  • Innovation Incubators (Southern Regional, Wiregrass Georgia and Lanier Technical Colleges)




Project 2B: Technical Workforce Development Goals/Metrics


  1. Identify critical AI manufacturing sectors and create a workforce pipeline
  2. Provide equity of access to AI manufacturing for historically underserved Georgians


  1. 93,000 credit hours across five colleges
  2. 1,100 K-12 students trained
  3. 97% of graduates placed in field of related field
    *Targets by the end of the grant cycle
