Part 1: Role of AI in Smart Factories


AI is transforming engineering in nearly every industry and application area. Smart factories leverage AI for various applications such as predictive maintenance and quality inspection. Identifying product defects and reducing manufacturing errors can help reduce labor and manufacturing costs significantly.

In the first part of this webinar, we will look at sensor data from a flowpack machine and develop predictive maintenance algorithm.  This will let you monitor equipment health to avoid future failures during operation. In the second part, we will look at automating visual inspection & defect detection using deep learning on a set of images/videos.


Session highlights:

  • Workflow to develop predictive maintenance and condition monitoring algorithms
  • Extracting condition indicators and building Remaining-Useful-Life (RUL) models
  • Automating preparation and labeling of image/video data
  • Interoperability with opensource deep learning frameworks
  • Training deep neural networks, hyper-parameters to accelerate training time & increase accuracy
