The intelligence shown by machines is called artificial intelligence. It consists of systems that increase performance in a certain task by collecting more and more data about it over time. In the end, artificial intelligence is simulating natural intelligence in machines that have been programmed to learn and mimic human action. Artificial intelligence utilizes algorithms that categorize, analyze, and model prognosis of data. It continuously develops and learns from new information, making its performance and accuracy better over time.
Applying artificial intelligence to operations requires a lot of data. Artificial intelligence algorithms are trained by using large data groups to recognize models, make predictions and recommend actions – just like a human, but faster and better. Examples of artificial intelligence in everyday life are for example artificial intelligence based chatbot in customer services, quality confirmation and automating tasks in factories and warehouses, face recognition in different applications and self-driving vehicles where cameras and computers recognize objects and humans on the road.
Fliq AI utilizes artificial intelligence algorithms in for example developed machine vision applications to recognize information in a still or moving image. This helps detect and recognize recurring patterns and traits from large data groups. These types of applications offer great added value to for example critical environments and situations where there is a recurring task, but the environment changes due to temperature, visibility, wearing or other variables.
One example of a situation like this happens in ports where trailers from trucks are moved in and out of cargo vessels. The towing vehicle that has machine vision functioning with artificial intelligence connects to the trailer to move it into the vessel or out of it into the port area. The machine vision automatically recognizes the ongoing task and simultaneously read the trailer’s individual identification. The exact location of the trailer can also be saved in the Fliq Work Flow system to help the driver easily see the trailer’s location and pick-up point from their mobile application.
Another application where we use artificial intelligence is the proactive maintenance of a factory and its processes. Proactive maintenance means that service and maintenance is planned as needed according to the right circumstances instead of time-based maintenance.
By analyzing information from different processes and resources, artificial intelligence can make conclusions on a machine or device’s state and detect irregularities that make proactive maintenance possible.
