Engineers like to adopt and adapt technologies to their tough environment and constraints. Strategically planning for the adoption and leveraging of some or all these technologies will be crucial in the manufacturing industry.
Let’s focus here on AI, and specifically deep learning-based image analysis or example-based machine vision. Combined with traditional rule-based machine vision, it can help robotic assemblers identify the correct parts, help detect if a part was present or missing or assembled improperly on the product, and more quickly determine if those were problems. And this can be done with high precision.
What Is Deep Learning
Without getting too deep in details, let’s talk about GPU hardware. GPUs (graphics processing units) gather thousands of relatively simple processing-cores on a single chip. Their architecture looks like neural networks. They allow to deploy biology-inspired and multi-layered "deep" neural networks which mimic the human brain.
