How AI is making manufacturing more cognitive today
Today’s factories can be futuristic hives of automated, connected and intelligent systems — now they are even capable of self-learning. Artificial intelligence (AI) has started to find its niche in manufacturing, and as technology matures — with sensors becoming more cost-efficient every day — manufacturers are reinventing applications with the use of AI algorithms, taking complex decisions, based on existing data sets.
Historical data plays an important role in the process of analyzing, understanding and decision-making for AI algorithms. Multiple attempts have been made to convert this ‘tribal’ knowledge into an algorithm or code, to make it available to a broad set of people and processes
Correlations which are often missed by human intuition or eye are sometimes captured by these algorithms. When combined with the industry-specific domain knowledge, this can be a powerful tool. However, the need for quality data is critical. In a plant or a factory, structured data is readily available and needs to be harnessed. But what challenges are created by the diverse data sources and types? And how do you find the right correlation between them?
In this webinar we will discuss a few scenarios and use cases for AI systems. These will look at data ingestion, being adaptive & reactive, and forward-looking. We will tackle the appropriate use of major components like classification, clustering, regression and recommendation.
Please join the free Webinar to explore some of the use cases, in a typical factory environment where existing data sets can be used for generating AI algorithms:
- Condition-based maintenance of critical equipment (Process and Utility)
- Energy Management towards “zero carbon footprint” target
- Real-time transport management for inbound and outbound logistics
- Quality control and monitoring of defective products (end of line as well as process parameters)
- Yield enhancement (OEE improvement).
