Workshop on Innovations in Manufacturing

Integrating AI, IoT and Data Driven Strategies

The upcoming I-ESA 2024 conference will feature a workshop showcasing the latest advancements in AI, IoT, and data management in the manufacturing sector. Organized by the XMANAI project and featuring esteemed participations from I4Q, RE4DY and AgileHand  projects, the workshop is a last opportunity to interact with the project’s Industrial Advisory Board and prepare the post-project exploitation.

This collaborative effort promises a comprehensive exploration of key topics shaping the future of manufacturing, including explainable AI, resilient supply chains, zero-defect manufacturing, and sustainable practices. It provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders to come together, exchange ideas, and explore emerging technologies that are transforming manufacturing processes

The workshop will feature scientific paper presentations followed by interactive Q&A sessions. A panel discussion involving distinguished members of the XMANAI Industrial Advisory Board will offer valuable insights into the practical applications of emerging technologies in real-world manufacturing settings.

For more information about the workshop and to register for the I-ESA 2024 conference, please visit [I-ESA website].

XMANAI Hackathon Event

The XMANAI project invites you to participate in the XMANAI Hackathon Event, from 13th to 14th July 2023, in Athens, Greece.

As AI becomes more and more ubiquitous in our lives, it is critical that we understand how these systems make decisions and the reasoning behind those decisions. We believe transparency and explanatory power are key to building trust in AI.

This event will bring together a diverse group of students, data scientists and AI experts who will explore the growing need for explainability in machine learning systems applied to manufacturing.

The XMANAI AI Explainability Hackathon will provide a platform for participants to test XMANAI tools and collaborate to create innovative solutions that will make AI more transparent, interpretable, and explainable.

During this hackathon, you’ll be able to work on real-world problems alongside our industrial demonstrators and explore cutting-edge techniques for model development, interpretation, and explainable AI.

By participating in this hackathon, you will join a community of data scientists and engineers committed to advancing the field of AI in manufacturing responsibly and ethically.

The hackathon will be a tutorial on the one hand, and a competition between teams to develop explainable AI solutions on the other. Participants will be organized into teams (working groups of 3 people) and will practice XAI models and data.

We look forward to seeing the creative solutions you come up with during this hackathon. Join us now and let’s make a difference together!

For more information on the hackathon venue, schedule, and prizes, visit the event page. Registration is free but mandatory – limited spaces!
