Knowledgefeed vol. 27: Deep Learning for Predictive Quality & Predictive Maintenance

Apr 23, 2019 7:00 PM — 9:00 PM

Get ready for our 27th Knowledgefeed featuring characteristics of Industrial AI and how state of the art deep learning methods can be applied to solve complex problems and bring more value to companies.

Talk (duration 60 – 90 mins): Predictive Maintenance, Predictive Quality & Visual Inspection

By Simon Stiebellehner -Head of AI, craftworks & Daniel Ressi -Data Scientist, craftworks

Artificial Intelligence plays a major role in Industry 4.0 and more industrial companies than ever are starting to utilize their data to gain value and insights. The industrial domain offers very promising opportunities but this potential also comes with very specific requirements and challenges. This talk gives insights into the characteristics of Industrial AI and how state of the art deep learning methods can be applied to solve complex problems and bring more value to companies. Based on real use cases, three common areas of Industrial AI and the applied modelling approaches will be presented:

  1. Predictive Maintenance: Can faults of machines be predicted in advance?
  2. Visual Inspection: Can computer vision automatically assess the quality of products?
  3. Predictive Quality: Can product defects be predicted in advance and prevented in future?

Simon is a Head of AI at craftworks and lecturerin statistics and digital marketing at WU Wien and FH Wien. After having completed his Bachelorin Information Systems, he gained diverse industry experience,ranging from Microsoft to global players of the consulting industry. Subsequently, Simon obtained his Masters degree from University College London (UCL), specializing in Machine Learning and Data Science. Afterwards, he was a doctoral candidate and research associate, conducting research at the intersection of Neural Probabilistic Language Models and Recommendation Systems in a Real-Time Bidding context.
