Artificial intelligence has transformed the world through its application in different segments of society. The recurrent use of this technique has rapidly transformed the industrial environment through advances in computational techniques.
Industries are experiencing a time of digitization driven by digital transformation and industry 4.0. The technologies developed in these periods have gained more and more space and application in the midst of production processes and industrial operations.
The trend is that, in the coming years, the application and use of artificial intelligence will evolve towards technological research and development with the objective of providing industries with fully digitalized production and operation.
The importance of artificial intelligence is indisputable, however, when we mention artificial intelligence we are not talking about an isolated technique, but a combination of several techniques such as:
Big Data: is the ability to analyze, process and store large amounts of data, so that this analysis can generate valuable knowledge that would not be possible with small amounts of data. The technique is responsible for reading various types of data, including structured and unstructured data.
Machine Learning: It is the ability of algorithms to identify patterns in data sets and from their own experience modify their behavior with minimal human interference based on logical patterns within the analyzed data
Active Learning: It is a manual labeling procedure for a subset of data that automatically infers labels based on learning from the other subsets.
The combination of these main techniques results in what we call Artificial Intelligence, which aims for the industrial sector to control an operation in real-time with the premise of improving process efficiency, energy use, and also assisting in manufacturing processes.
This is possible thanks to the technique’s ability to generate, process, and identify logical reasoning, model interpretation, and identification of physical objects.
The artificial intelligence market, according to Statista’s data, is valued at approximately 327.5 billion dollars with an investment of approximately 20 billion dollars in startups in the second quarter of 2021.
These data reinforce the importance of this technology, which increasingly tends to evolve and transform industrial processes, generating greater efficiency, control, and safety in the midst of industrial processes.
