What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the ability of a computer or machine to perform tasks that typically require human-like intelligence, such as understanding language, recognizing patterns, and making decisions. AI can be divided into two main categories: narrow or weak AI, which is designed to perform a specific task, and general or strong AI, which is designed to perform any intellectual task that a human being can.

There are many different techniques and approaches that can be used to create AI, including machine learning, which involves training algorithms on large data sets so that they can make predictions or decisions based on new input data, and natural language processing, which enables machines to understand and interpret human language.

AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches. The traditional goals of AI research include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, learning, pattern recognition, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects.

AI has the potential to revolutionize many different industries and has already been applied in a variety of contexts.

In manufacturing, Industry 4.0 applications are based on a unified AI approach that enables manufacturers to further increase their business value. AI technology analyzes the production environment and makes on-the-fly predictions and decisions based on what’s actually happening on the production floor.

Plataine’s software features predictive maintenance, meaning the Digital Assistant sends timely recommendations when a mold requires upkeep. Recommendations are sent on a predictive basis so that shutdowns can be avoided altogether.

Plataine’s proactive intelligence identifies & predicts problems and opportunities on the production floor and provides recommendations to solve production floor issues while optimizing operations. This represents a holistic approach by automating and optimizing the decision flow (as opposed to managing data flows) of business roles in the organization. Plataine’s intelligent digital assistant continually monitors “what might develop” (positive or negative), and proactively alerts users on any significant developments and offers the corresponding solution. This creates an efficient production line with tangible benefits such as reduces costs, improved quality and minimized downtime and delays.

Some benefits of a fully connected AI and IIoT system include streamlined production processes, Prediction and prevention of latencies, misplacements human error and bottlenecks, in real-time, Optimal material and tool selection for the job, insights into the manufacturing process based on data analysis and improved quality.
