Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Manufacturing

Posted: 7 March 2023

Event: 4 April 2023

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a key pillar of the Fourth Industrial Evolution (Industry 4.0). It aims to achieve direct information exchange between industrial machines, people, and processes. By tapping into and analysing such data with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), IIoT can more importantly provide for significant improvements in productivity, product quality, and safety via proactive detection of problems in the performance and reliability of production machines, workers, and industrial processes.

Manufacturing plants rely on AI to integrate data, analyse it, and produce the deep insights and predictions that help drive better decision-making. ML is the type of AI that requires big datasets to identify patterns and trends, then uses them to build models for future predictions. Hosted by the Advanced Manufacturing Industry 4.0 Hub at Swinburne University, the webinar will describe the role of AI/ML in Manufacturing with some case studies in the context of Industry 4.0.

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Forkan is a Senior Research Fellow in AI and ML in the Swinburne Digital Innovation Lab.
