What's next for the world of CNC operators? An increasing move to incorporate artificial intelligence, or AI, into operations. Over the next several years, CNC machining could see something of a revolution that includes machines that respond to Alexa-like voice commands.
We are entering a new manufacturing era defined by AI, machine learning and vision, enabling us to teach machines to adapt and learn plans and move us toward a true "Lot Size 1" utopia. Automation's next era will be defined not around volume, but around intelligence.
To truly maximize IIoT, manufacturers need a single solution that supports scalable-IIoT deployments and creates a collaborative environment that's data-driven and provides transparency across the entire production process.
Camera Specs - Not the Frontier in the Era of AI - Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) Offers a New Approach to Visual QA
Machine vision engineers are pushing the frontiers of camera specifications to offer solutions with incredible resolution. Yonatan Hyatt explains why Autonomous Machine Vision (AMV) is pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence, not camera specifications.
A downside of so much automation is that there is now a heavier dependence on machinery/robots to perform action. For some lines, if one of robot goes down, the entire line does.
Sometimes the most difficult thing about AI is simply knowing where to start. Identifying potentially impactful use cases is one of the most cited roadblocks for organizations seeking to leverage AI in their business.
Most companies are already seeing and will see positive effects from AI, with a predicted revenue increase of 22.6%. In fact, many manufacturing companies are already implementing AI practices
"3rd Annual Internet of Manufacturing is a very important conference for the construction and support of the industrial the ecosystem. It's a great pleasure to come and compare new ideas and projects and to meet with and discover new suppliers and manufacturers."
In the manufacturing context, an example of a pattern might be the ways in which a set of parameters contained in that data, which are related to a process in a factory, vary together.
New technology is poised to transform the way machines operate in the industrial environment. Costly consultants and confusing spreadsheets are out, and easy to understand dashboards are in.
Even when you can connect directly to whatever it is that you are measuring and design the system yourself, you might encounter issues. Inconsistencies can arise from power failures, wifi outages, faulty or damaged equipment.
AI is big business-US venture capital investment in the sector reached $6.6 billion in the first three quarters of 2018, compared to $3.9 billion in the same period the year before.
Instrumental is attacking the 20 to 35 cents of every $1 spent in manufacturing that is wasted. That waste comes from literal scrap at the various factories in the process, returns, mistakes, extra experimentation, travel, and engineering time that wasn't used efficiently..
We still have a long way to go before we can truly enjoy the countless benefits AI has to offer. Not only that, but for AI and ML (machine learning) to gain real, feasible meaning in manufacturing and beyond, there are a few steps the industry needs to take.
Among our early initiatives is a plan to create a self-driving forklift for the production floor, and to develop AI technology-based robots to improve the outgoing quality of products, enhance turnaround time and reduce costs.
