Platform Launch Event
The time has finally come that to launch our AI Marketplace platform. For this occasion, we plan to host a special virtual launch event with a live demo and insights into benefits and offers of the AI Marketplace.
Talking with… Ruslan Bernijazov
Artificial intelligence (AI) is at the heart of the activities of the AI Marketplace. Ruslan Bernijazov research associate at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Mechatronic Systems Design IEM, explains how this is reflected in the platform in particular, but also in the pilot projects.
Talking with… Ulrich Ahle
In his interview, Ulrich Ahle, CEO of the FIWARE Foundation, talks about the company’s contribution to the AI Marketplace and the added value the AI Marketplace offers for FIWARE and for companies in general.
How a software facilitates the start of the AI Marketplace
How can a software help the AI Marketplace succeed? Ventecon has been a partner in the project since the end of April and is taking a close look at the market for AI.
Interview: AI for product development – recipe for success of the AI Marketplace
What is behind the term product creation, and why is AI of high importance in this process? Marc Foullois, research associate at Fraunhofer IEM, has the answers.
? IDSA LIVE SESSION
During the IDSA LIVE SESSION, four experts will provide information on the topics of artificial intelligence, digital platforms and Business 4.0. The AI Marketplace is also part of the program.
AI Marketplace: These are the seven pilot projects
At the kick-off on February 25, 2020 at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute, seven partners will for the first time provide insights into their pilot projects on AI in product creation.
Strong partners from industry and research are therefore working on a digital marketplace for artificial intelligence in product development. On this platform, users, providers and experts for AI can exchange information, place products and receive solutions on a secure platform. Become part of the AI Marketplace and open up the possibilities of AI for your product development.
At present, vehicle diagnosis in a workshop requires comprehensive automotive knowledge and involves a great deal of work. Hella Gutmann’s aim is therefore to develop an AI application for AI-supported diagnosis and identification of potentially defective vehicle components on the basis of historical vehicle data (e.g. fault codes or sensor readings) and to integrate a further variety of data sources (e.g. invoice data, repair information etc.).
How can service technicians be optimally supported? A pilot project by Diebold Nixdorf Systems together with Fraunhofer IOSB-INA is dedicated to this question. The aim is to develop an AI application that reads and analyzes service and sensor data from ATMs in the field. Based on this, differentiated repair instructions for service technicians are to be generated. An existing service platform will serve as a database.
A set-up process in an automated manufacturing process that is optimized with the help of AI and replaces the previously manual “teaching” – this is the core of a project by düspohl Maschinenbau GmbH and the Fraunhofer IEM. In addition, the probable producibility of new product specifications is to be assessed automatically.
The goal of Ubermetrics’ project is an AI application that extracts relevant information from unstructured or semi-structured texts (e.g. online ratings, complaint emails, service reports, complaint reports), analyzes it and makes it systematically available to a developer. The application can be used, for example, in the context of targeted optimization of system components.
Artificial Intelligence has the potential to fundamentally change the way we work and operate. CLAAS GmbH & Co. KGaA, an internationally active manufacturer of agricultural machinery, has recognised this potential and is testing a special use case for the integration of AI in Computer Aided Design (CAx) in the AI marketplace together with the Fraunhofer Institutes IEM and IPK.
The project of Westaflex in cooperation with the Fraunhofer IEM focuses on an AI application that helps to optimize the sequence planning of production orders. For this purpose, real-time data from production control as well as from machines are to be evaluated in order to extract hints for optimal machine allocations.
A network of strong partners
The AI Marketplace project is funded from January 2020 to December 2022 in the Innovationscompetition "Artificial intelligence as a driver for economically relevant ecosystems" of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi).
