In the future, applications in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be established in almost every industry and will decisively determine progress in entrepreneurial value creation. The digital transformation demands ever shorter innovation cycles from science and research as well as from technology providers, and also new top performance in hardware and software, since AI applications can only be realized on the basis of data- and computation-intensive processes.

Automation/Energy Industry: Predictive Maintenance through preventive diagnostics

The production and energy supply supported by IoT enables smooth processes and early prevention of malfunctions through preventive diagnostic systems. IoT-based predictive maintenance strategies for energy supply and industrial automation optimize plant maintenance, allow real-time remote control and adapt maintenance schedules to real conditions. Machine and deep learning help to detect deviations at an early stage and display anomalies by means of planning algorithms. 

Healthcare: A faster race against time with AI

AI opens up new opportunities in patient treatment regarding prevention, diagnosis and therapy. The chances of recovery increase with the degree of diagnosis, such as X-rays, CTA, MRI or ultrasound. AI applications that structure and analyze huge amounts of data in a short time are necessary to supplement the diagnoses of medical personnel.

Visual/Audio Inspection: Digital inspection systems ensure higher quality and productivity

Recordings from a camera connected either via USB or a network are analyzed and evaluated directly on the edge device by a trained neural network in a process called ‘inference’. In addition to visual inspection, AI applications involving text recognition and reproduction as well as audio and behavior pattern recognition are also possible. Audio recognition for instance can be used to identify unusual vibrations that indicate a faulty machine part. For example, the axes of trains could be checked while in operation. 

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) offer the required computing power

Powerful hardware and software components are essential for AI solutions to fulfill their role as system-critical applications in any industry. The systems have to analyze terabytes of data in a short period of time. The computing power required for parallel processing is provided by multicore CPUs based on neural chips. Above all, however, it comes from the graphics processing units (GPUs). GPUs are the processors that today provide the necessary power for deep learning, machine learning and inferencing.
