Artificial Intelligence in Smart Industrial Diagnostics and Manufacturing
In the field of industrial production, metal parts and components have complex production processes that require machining, stamping, precision casting, powder metallurgy, injection molding and other special synthesis procedures. Each process needs to be strictly controlled to ensure product quality. The application of metal parts covers almost all industries in life and is closely related to our lives. There are many types and sizes of parts, and the processes of surface inspection, size measurement, target positioning, etc., are difficult and have low inaccuracy. Different production requirements make it impossible for manual inspections to meet actual production needs. In order to solve the visual problems in industrial production, intelligent detection based on artificial intelligence (AI) can learn and recognize information such as surface defects, dimensions, and the positions of metal parts. As opposed to traditional vision algorithms, optimized algorithms can effectively solve the problems of high reflection and high brightness in the image acquisition process. These have rapid recognition speed, high accuracy, and strong versatility, and can solve problems in the production processes of various metal parts. Research in this field is dedicated to the development of smart industrial diagnostics and manufacturing based on AI (SIDM-AI). Research in this field is the product of a combination of vision processing technology and AI technology.
AI is a novel technological science that entails the study and development of theories, methods, technologies and application systems used to simulate, extend and expand human intelligence. AI is a branch of computer science which attempts to understand the essence of intelligence and produce new, intelligent machines that can react at a similar level to human intellect. Research in this field includes robotics, language recognition, image recognition, natural language processing, expert systems, etc. Since the inception of AI, the theories and technologies have become increasingly mature, and the fields of application have continued to expand. It is conceivable that the technological products developed with AI in the future will be the "containers" of human wisdom. AI can simulate the information process of human consciousness and thinking. AI is not human intelligence; however, it can think like humans and may soon exceed the capacity of human intelligence.
Research in this field focuses on industrial quality inspection links such as surface inspection, assembly inspection, precision measurement and workpiece positioning. Compared with traditional inspection solutions, novel inspection systems have a low cost, high efficiency and high accuracy, and could also replace most of the low-end manual labor in the current manufacturing industry and reduce labor costs. The development of SIDM-AI contributes to the further development of industries such as automobile manufacturing, building material production, 3C manufacturing, and textiles. With the continuous development of AI technology, it is expected to help companies reduce production costs, improve production efficiency and benefits, and accelerate the upgrading of intelligent industries.
