ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
ML for verification and defect detection/classification
Image based ML algorithms have been advancing exponentially, but manufacturing industries have been slow to adopt these new methods. Supervised ML algorithms can be taught to perform inspections with less developer effort for certain classes of problems when compared to traditional methods, and will often work where traditional techniques are infeasible. Advances in IIOT have reduced the cost of acquiring and labelling large datasets, situating manufacturing in a sweet-spot for leveraging ML.
Localization for debugging and more
A major criticism of ML is its “black-box” nature. In convolutional neural network (CNN) based ML models one very useful technique is the use of “class activation maps” – a heatmap showing the area(s) of an image that most heavily affected the output of the model for a certain image. By inspecting high-activation areas we can understand why a model made a certain prediction the way it did. Looking further, these algorithms can be used to localize parts without explicit training.
Vision inspection systems in manufacturing generate a lot of data. In many cases any incorrect predictions made by the system can be identified and associated with recorded data, allowing continuous-training and algorithm improvements to be had almost for free. In contrast with traditional vision systems which often degrade over time due to changing environmental and physical conditions, an ML based vision system can continually improve the longer it runs.
Artemis Vision is a machine vision software and integration company headquartered in Denver, CO, with a sales and support office in Charlotte NC. We work with leading manufacturers and OEMs to build machine vision solutions. Solutions address needs in the Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Medical, Defense, Building Materials and Energy Industries among others. We work closely with our customers following a test-driven development process so the solution works in the real world, as testing gets baked into every step of the process. Once systems have been built, we can also work with you to link to your current IT and SPC environments, so you can utilize the full value of your solution and use the data to improve your process. Artemis Vision can help your company find your solution and save you money, time, increase reliability, and decrease liability.Click Here for More
