Bringing Artificial Intelligence to Industrial Automation

Through Artificial Intelligence (AI) machines are now able to make decisions, solve problems and drive efficiencies.
This makes AI the heart of Industry 4.0 and opens up an immeasurable amount of opportunities for many different businesses.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the heart of Industry 4.0.    What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) 
In a fast-paced, inter-connected world, machines are now able to make decisions, solve problems and drive efficiencies. This opens up almost unlimited opportunities for business. Many of the early commercial AI solutions were found in the consumer market, in phones and other small ‘smart’ devices. But computer science has now reached an advanced level where AI technology can make a significant contribution to any industry.

Harnessing AI to improve accuracy and optimise workflows 
From healthcare to automotive; defence to manufacturing, organisations are harnessing AI to improve accuracy and optimise workflows. AI provides them with better and deeper analysis of images, measurements and machine performance. It is used to develop and innovate in diverse areas like military hardware, surveillance, facial recognition, driverless cars and cyber security. In short, AI represents the future of technology, and it is here today.

Artificial Intelligence and industrial automation What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) 
Within manufacturing and industrial automation, AI is impacting every element of the supply chain. Cameras and sensors can detect faults and flaws much more quickly than the human eye. AI can also perform complex and laborious ‘human’ tasks like evaluating changing demand, coordinating deliveries and reordering stock. AI powers machine learning and predictive maintenance, eliminating the need for planned downtime. Failures in equipment can be preempted and addressed in a very targeted way. This increases the lifetime of the machinery and keeps it operational for longer.

Importantly, AI is moving from the cloud to directly influence edge computing
In the past, AI existed only in data centers with sufficient power to process such complex cognitive tasks. Now, new technologies are emerging that bring AI closer to users, allowing it to exist directly within software and devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). This has made it possible to build AI into a live operational environment, where decisions and enhancements can be made in real-time.

Challenge for industry to optimise AI technology
One challenge for industry has been to optimise AI technology within existing hardware frameworks. While budgets for certain industries such as military and defence are able to incorporate new state-of-the-art technologies easily, in commercial or industrial settings, it can be difficult to find a way of building AI functionality into legacy hardware without making things too complex or prohibitively expensive.
And, for Artificial Intelligence to be fully effective, it has to be able to operate wherever a business needs it.
