Join Akio Miura, North America AI Sales Manager at Lenovo, and Taylor Allison, HPC/AI Solutions Specialist for Lenovo, at the Artificial Intelligence Conference in San Francisco where they will demonstrate how AI can help evaluate product quality on an assembly line.
This proof-of-concept demonstrates the power of Artificial Intelligence in a manufacturing setting. By using computer vision at the edge to detect quality control issues, it can reduce product errors and help improve customer satisfaction in a cost-effective manner.
In the demo, a series of soda cans moves along a conveyor belt that simulates AI in the manufacturing environment. As the cans pass by, the model will intelligently detect product defects and determine the level of damage, ensuring speedy and accurate quality control in real time. This system was developed in collaboration between Mark III Systems and Intel® AI Builders member Lenovo using the Intel® Optimization for TensorFlow.
Additionally, inference workloads run at the edge on the Lenovo ThinkStation P330 Tiny powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 processor, allowing the system to identify flawed products without needing to connect to the cloud or data center.
Model development for the demo was completed on the Lenovo Intelligent Computing Orchestration (LiCO) software stack running on the latest Lenovo ThinkSystem servers and Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.
