Machine Learning for Industrial Processes

How can we teach computers to learn from data?

The core concept in Machine Learning (ML) is how to teach computers to learn from data. This implies that we must teach machines how to recall, adapt (or make adjustments), and generalize the information they have acquired in order for them to apply it to similar situations and cases. Machine Learning brings together ideas from neuroscience, physics, mathematics, statistics, and biology to enable computers to learn through modelling.

Machine Learning Overview

Leggi dettagli

Machine Learning has gained increasing attention in industrial processes such as laser hardening, laser welding, grinding and additive manufacturing (AM) due to its high performance in data analysis tasks such as classification, regression and clustering. In the field of manufacturing processes, the various Machine Learning techniques can support the design, process control and production phases.
