STANLEY X has been deploying DeepHow's breakthrough video-based learning approach to develop comprehensive on-the-job learning material to help capture and share knowledge across businesses. DeepHow harnesses the power of AI to automate process mapping and video creation, enabling companies to rapidly create a library of standard work-instruction videos.

"Forty percent of the construction workforce will retire within 10 years, taking vast expertise and know-how with them. We are partnering with Stanley Black & Decker to deploy an AI-powered video-centric solution that captures and documents these skills," said Dr. Sam Zheng, co-founder and CEO of DeepHow. "The NECA showstopper award is validation that technology can play a crucial role in upskilling the next generation of tradespeople."

DeepHow combines the deep learning of AI with the know-how of expert employees. Using DeepHow, companies can easily make their skills, techniques and know-how available across the organization at almost twice the speed of traditional video production. The resulting high-quality training videos reduce new task training time by up to 40 percent, compared with printed standard operating procedures (SOPs).

"We understand the labor challenges and productivity concerns facing our customers in the construction industry," said Rebecca Peredo, director of commercialization at STANLEY X. "Our partnership with DeepHow allows us to deliver meaningful solutions to those who make the world. We are very proud of this Showstopper Award win."
