EluciDATA Tech Talk 2022: AI for optimization of industrial processes

More and more companies wonder how to use artificial intelligence & machine learning to improve the quality of their products, to have an optimal use of resources, and to forecast possible problems during their production cycles. However, they often do not know where to start, and lack a realistic overview of the challenges that lie ahead and of the data that could be useful for tackling those challenges.

To inspire, encourage and give a thorough overview of the current state of the art on the use of AI for optimizing industrial processes to our EluciDATA Community Members, we invited for this year’s EluciDATA Tech Talk Dr. Carlos Garcia from IMR (Irish Manufacturing Research), who will give an inspirational keynote. In addition, real-world use case examples will also be showcased by some of our industrial partners.

Programme

12:00 Welcome lunch
13:00 'AI in manufacturing: the perspective of a Digital Innovation Hub' - Dr. Carlos Garcia, Irish Manufacturing Research
  • There is no doubt that artificial intelligence will play a prominent role in all kinds of industrial operations in the future. There are already quite a few AI applications running in the industry, some more successful than others. In this talk, we'll look at several of those applications in real-world manufacturing and discuss some important points to keep in mind when considering embarking on an AI project
13:30

AI interpreting of logging files: what could go wrong? - Jurgen Devlieghere, Xeikon

 

13:50 13:50 A Data-Driven Methodology for Monitoring the Manufacturing Process - Reinert Verstraete, ScioTeq
14:10 Q&A
14:15 Break
14:45 'Using data-driven divide-and-conquer methods for accurate build-time estimation for additive manufacturing' - Materialise & Sirris
15:15 'Unsupervised AI methods for optimizing tool replacement in an industrial setting' (SABCA use case) - Sirris
15:35

Expert talks:

  • The Grain
  • PEPITe
  • Yazzoom - Jan Verhasselt
    • Case 1: Advisory tool that recommends to operators which chemical additions to do when, in order to realize the desired change in paper whiteness a few hours later. This to minimize costs of chemicals and volume of off-spec paper.
    • Case 2: Real-time supervisory control that automatically adjusts the setpoints in a combined heat and power plant based on short term predictions of the intra-day electricity price. This to maximize profit.
16:15 Concluding remarks
16:30 Networking reception
