The abstract and unrealistic presentation of AI in the media makes it difficult to explore and exploit its actual potential for industrial applications. We have a pragmatic approach to this problem: a workshop in which you teach a robot to recognize and pick up objects while learning about the basics of artificial intelligence such as data engineering, labeling, training, evaluation and application.
Machine learning methods such as Deep Learning have become suitable for industrial use and are clearly superior to conventional methods in terms of efficiency and flexibility – particularly in machine vision applications. Despite this, AI adoption is still slowed down by reservations – especially since the entire scope of potentials has not yet been identified and rules for data handling have not been clearly defined.
Training, application and the insufficient transparency of decisions made by AI continue to pose great challenges. This is why we developed AI Lab – a practice-oriented one-hour workshop that imparts basic knowledge through short introductory presentations, giving up to 15 participants the chance to train and use their own AI.
The declared goal is to enable an industrial robotic system to recognize and pick up unknown components using a camera-based system. This workshop will provide participants with application-oriented insights into the entire life cycle of industrial AI applications along with the most important dos and don'ts. The workshop’s focal topics:
The workshop will be held in German and English on each of the four trade fair days. It is hosted by Gestalt Robotics GmbH – an innovative service provider at the interface between conventional industrial automation and AI – in cooperation with VDMA Robotics + Automation and Messe München. All participants receive a ‘Industrial AI user’ certificate. Participation fees for the workshop at automatica 2020 will be borne by the automatica project management.
