XMANAI has published the 7th Newsletter.
This newsletter presents our pilot UNIMETRIK, it has a section dedicated to the Hackathon event and references the honorable mention the project received at the ICE Conference.
Please, check it out!
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!

7th XMANAI´s General Assembly
On the 22nd and 23rd of March, XMANAI held its 7th General Assembly in Lisbon hosted by Knowledgebiz.
This was an excellent opportunity to share project outcomes and plan the next steps.
XMANAI platform – Alpha release available
We are happy to announce that the XMANAI platform – Alpha release is now available.
This is the first public release and provides the basis for the implementation and delivery of the upcoming versions of the XMANAI platform. In accordance with the XMANAI Description of Action, two additional releases are expected on June 2023 (Beta Version) and April 2024 (Version 1.0) hence the delivery of the XMANAI platform is a continuous process that will last till the end of the project. During the upcoming period, refinements and optimisations will be introduced based on the feedback that will be continuously collected by the XMANAI pilot demonstrators.
Check the details on this release on the newly created website section on the technical architecture and components.
6th XMANAI´s General Assembly
At the end of September, XMANAI has a hybrid General Assembly at Limassol hosted by Suite5.
In this meeting, each partner showed how are the developments of the project and it was made some action lists with the next steps.
Explainability in AI: the connecting factor for effective digitalisation in manufacturing industry
Explainability has proven to be a key element in boosting AI adoption in different industrial fields thanks to its glass box approach providing transparent and understandable insights on algorithm decisions and results. Given its strategic role in improving economic growth, Explainable AI contributes to advance cooperation between different types of stakeholders, including not only industrial companies and associations but also European projects and clusters. The aim of creating a collaborative network in XAI domain is to explore the most effective pathways to the digital integration and interoperability of manufacturing systems. This goal can be achieved by identifying relevant cross-cutting factors and key enablers to promote the implementation of best practices concerning technological innovation in industry.
These core topics have been thoroughly addressed during the European Workshop for AI Pathway held on the 13th of June 2022 in Brussels and organised by Connected Factories, an initiative focused on bolstering digitalisation in manufacturing supported by EFFRA: The European Factories of the Future Research Association. TXT attended the event due to the strong connection of XMANAI with twin projects focused on similar approach on AI benefits, such as leveraging AI to promote Circular Economy routes, enable man-robot collaboration, optimize data driven production management and determine an effective pathway for human-centred manufacturing in Industry 5.0.
Complementary issues were discussed at the Now8! Event, a series of meetings set up by Confindustria Bergamo a Lombardy Digital Innovation Hub to disseminate the latest technological advancements for industrial applications. TXT was invited as guest speaker to relate on the importance of innovative solutions based on explainable AI as a key enabler for digital transition.
