Hannover Messe 2019 – Industrial Intelligence
“With its lead theme ‚Integrated Industry – Industrial Intelligence‘, the Hannover Messe 2019 shows that Artificial Intelligence is the next logical step in the light of Industrie 4.0”, says Prof. Dr. Martin Ruskowski, Head of the Innovative Factory Systems Research Department at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). This is also the approach that SmartFactoryKL, DFKI and the partner companies are taking for their presentation at this year’s Hannover Messe.
It is the aim to show that the data of networked machines makes completely new opportunities regarding the production of the future possible. However, the human will remain the central knowledge carrier. Even though AI can help to collect and analyze vast amounts of data, humans will always carry the responsibility for the decisions taken.
Prof. Dr. Detlef Zühlke, Chairman of the Executive Board of SmartFactoryKL, emphasizes the opportunities of many AI applications: “Today, we can manage large amounts of data and process complex algorithms. Large computing power for small amounts of money is a big enabler for AI. Be it pattern recognition in the field of autonomous driving or augmented reality in the area of production – the market now meets a technology that has suddenly become affordable and available, also for SMEs.”
Infrastructure & TSN, as well as smart safety, are also focus topics at the Hannover Messe 2019 in Hall 8 / Booth D18, located directly opposite the Industrie 4.0 Forum.
