NNAISENSE, the leader in artificial intelligence (AI)-based neural network solutions for industrial application, is today opening its inaugural Industrial AI Academy, the first of its kind, providing CTOs and other technical experts working in industrial processing, smart manufacturing, and machinery with firsthand training by world-renowned AI experts.
Off-the-shelf AI solutions are growing in popularity among manufacturers aiming to automate factory processes, detect anomalies in production, and digitally transform the manufacturing process. However, these solutions quickly lose their value without proper guidance from experts who understand AI and its applications in individual factories, each with its unique needs. As a result, companies are losing valuable resources investing in technologies that ultimately do not deliver.
For Industrial AI to be most effective, CTOs and technical personnel must truly understand what AI can do, what technical questions need to be asked, and what ways AI can best be utilized to increase factory efficiency and drive company growth. NNAISENSE’s Industrial AI academy is built around three pillars to enable CTOs and technical teams to succeed in implementing AI into their factories. The first pillar is built around teaching what Industrial AI actually is, its capabilities, and perhaps most importantly, what makes it different from traditional software implementation. The second pillar is based on teaching CTOs how to determine what kinds of experts and personnel they need to effectively implement AI immediately and at scale, and the third pillar focuses on enabling CTOs and their teams to accurately evaluate different AI options in their industry and pick the best solution for them.
The Academy’s curriculum includes expert and management tracks taught by specialists in machine learning, AI, and high-tech product and service development in the industrial sector. The course topics include, how to effectively create and utilize 3rd generation AI-powered digital twins, finding AI use cases for a company, effectively implementing AI solutions onto a production line, and more. Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion.
“Off-the-shelf AI solutions may bill themselves as a one-stop-shop for an organization’s Industrial AI needs, but in reality, there always needs to be some element of customization as not all industrial or manufacturing processes are the same,” said Ralf Haller, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at NNAISENSE. “Industrial AI, when implemented correctly, can transform operations and streamline factory work by predicting and preventing issues that routinely occur in traditional non-automated factories. Therefore, we are proud to offer a comprehensive training course to educate decision-makers about the capabilities of Industrial AI, and to create a cadre of leaders to further usher in Industry 4.0.”
