What we do Manufacturing companies in all industries must not only maintain their competitiveness, they must increase it. They must produce their goods faster and more individually.
To do so, they need solutions that enable them to significantly increase their efficiency. They need systems that help them to complete complex tasks faster and with better results, and that optimally control their production processes so they can react properly to unforeseen issues.
We provide companies with such solutions: intelligent systems that map production processes on the basis of real costs and duration. Systems that mathematically optimize according to set targets, act autonomously and are self-improving.
To achieve this, we combine reinforcement learning with intelligent prediction models and stochastic processes. What drives us In the field of artificial intelligence, groundbreaking technologies are constantly emerging that push the boundaries of what’s feasible.
Accompanied by ever-faster hardware, these systems can solve problems that were considered unsolvable 10 years ago. While certain applications, such as targeted marketing, autonomous driving or digital assistants, particularly benefit from this, similar solutions have barely begun to find their way into industrial production.
However, many industrial companies are faced with special challenges, such as mass-customized production and reduced consumption of resources. Artificial intelligence can unlock the greatest potential for value creation in industrial production.
