National Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Industry 4.0

Venue: CSIR-CMERI, Durgapur 

November 07-09, 2019


About Workshop

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is now making its way into manufacturing, and the machine-learning technology and pattern-recognition software at its core can hold the key to transforming factories of the near future. AI is well suited to manufacturing as it can perform manufacturing, quality control, shorten design time, and reduce materials waste, improve production reuse, perform predictive maintenance, and more. Today, thousands of people in a single factory work together to spot defects, an incredibly tiring task, but the deep-learning algorithm may take a fraction of second to inspect a part and they are also more accurate than humans. In a recent move to bring AI into manufacturing, a team of researchers at Siemens Corporate Technology, Germany, developed a two-armed robot that can manufacture products without having to be programmed. By analyzing the data, the artificial intelligence systems can draw conclusions regarding a machine’s condition and detect irregularities in order to make predictive maintenance possible. Now deep learning and AI has advanced to the point it too has the potential to transform every industry. For example, even though the Industry 4.0 revolution is still in its early stages, we are already witnessing significant benefits from AI. This workshop is aimed to  bring industry and academia together under the same roof for sharing their insights to truly leverage AI for Industry 4.0.
