Leveraging AI to Diagnose Defects & Increase Yields

Anna-Katrina Shedletsky  (CEO and Founder, Instrumental)

Location: 209A

Date: Wednesday, February 12

Time: 2:05pm - 3:00pm

Track: Smart Manufacturing Innovation Summit: AI, Machine Learning & IoT/IIoT: Factors Affecting Factory Floor Adoption

Vault Recording: TBD

Manufacturing defects happen more frequently than you might think. In this session, you’ll hear about aggregated proprietary data on defect rates taken from real production environments of Fortune 500s. Not only will common defect types and their impact be presented, but never-before-seen stats will be unveiled – data that will surely set the standard in quality for development and production environments for years to come. This unique information will then be contextualized in a case study where a powerful combination of visual data and AI was leveraged to remotely monitor production processes from the factory floor, catch and diagnose defects, and increase yields. Topics covered include:

  • Defect detection data and quality metrics from industry giants
  • Knowledge about the use of cutting-edge AI that doesn't require systems integrators
  • Applications and concrete ROI examples
