DATA WEEK 2021: AI for Manufacturing: Opportunities and Challenges

The STAR project, in cooperation with the COALA, XMANAI and Teaming.AI ICT-38-2020 Horizon 2020 projects, co-organised a session on AI for Manufacturing: Opportunities and Challenges at the DATA WEEK 2021.

The objective of the session was to elaborate on business opportunities and R&I challenges for the full take up of AI technologies in Manufacturing. Four relevant aspects are analysed in detail: explainable AI (XMANAI), trustworthy and secure AI (STAR), Human-AI interaction (TEAMING.AI) and AI-based digital assistants and training systems (COALA).

During this session, the discussion concentrated on the two topics represented by Explainable AI (STAR and XMANAI) and Human-AI Interaction (COALA and TEAMING.AI) while the other topics (AI Security and Trustworthy AI) was debated later inside the SMI group of BDVA/DAIRO thanks to the involvement of additional ICT-38 projects.

Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data Value and Industrial AI research and innovation community. This year, Data Week will be held online from 25th to the 27th of May.
