Our book provides in-depth insights into use cases implementing artificial intelligence (AI) applications at the edge. It covers new ideas, concepts, research, and innovation to enable the development and deployment of AI, the industrial internet of things (IIoT), edge computing, and digital twin technologies in industrial environments. The work is based on the research results and activities of the AI4DI (ECSEL JU) project, including an overview of industrial use cases, research, technological innovation, validation, and deployment. This book's sections build on the research, development, and innovative ideas elaborated for applications in five industries: automotive, semiconductor, industrial machinery, food and beverage, and transportation. The articles included under each of these five industrial sectors discuss AI-based methods, techniques, models, algorithms, and supporting technologies, such as IIoT, edge computing, digital twins, collaborative robots, silicon-born AI circuit concepts, neuromorphic architectures, and augmented intelligence, that are anticipating the development of Industry 5.0. Artificial Intelligence for Digitising Industry - Applications.

AI4DI partners held the 3rd Webinar of the project, presenting the consortium’s work in the realm of AI for Smart Food and Beverage Production.
Food processing is one of the critical revenues generating sector for a majority of the developed and developing economies, and the implementation of IoT/IIoT and robotics solutions in the industrial sector has supported overcome critical issues related to production and execution by eliminating the possible chance of human errors while reducing the redundancy in work being performed by manual labour. AI can fuel innovation in production and packaging to reach consumer expectations regarding its quality and its associated impact on the cost. To attain the potential trade-off between quality and price, industry stakeholders actively leverage the potential of AI across various applications, such as product design, quality control, maintenance, and consumer engagement, among others.
The AI4DI Webinar no3: AI for Smart Food and Beverage Production was designed to present the AI techniques and methods applied to different applications in the food and beverage industry developed by AI4DI project partners. The Webinar includes presentations from other national and European projects.

AI4DI partner Know-Center published an online article about the AI4DI project, and how in cooperation with Infineon, the Know-Center is developing an intelligent FMEA assistant for the area of semiconductors, which is trained via Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods. “We use AI methods, such as deep learning, in combination with natural language processing and knowledge graphs to extract knowledge from a large number of publications and technical documentation. This makes it possible to automatically recognise the cause-and-effect chains, allowing experts to assess risks better and identify potential problems early. The free texts are subsequently converted into structured data,” stated Roman Kern, Research Area Head of Knowledge Discovery at Know-Center, and explained: “The biggest advantage is that technicians can make risk assessments and categorisations, such as a production error of a semiconductor component, using a much larger knowledge base. For the technician, this saves quite a bit of time and resources and the knowledge gained over time is not lost.”
