XMANAI´s project at ICIE 2020 conference
Ruben Costa, a Knowledgebiz´s Director, presented the XMANAI´s project in an invited lecture at ICIE 2020 Conference, Guimarães, Portugal.
It was a mixed event (remote and physical) where he explained XMANAI and how it will be an important help to industries that want to improve their results with artificial intelligence.

Title: Data Management and Use of Artificial Intelligence in Manufacturing
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its way into a broad range of industries, manufacturing amongst them. Indeed, together with big data techniques, the sorts of decisions and predictions being made by AI-enabled systems is becoming much more profound, and in many cases, critical to success and profitability. Machine learning’s inherent advantages in finding anomalies in the production and packaging processes have significant potential to increase throughput and quality of products as well as to reduce machinery downtime and maintenance costs. In the cusp of Industry 5.0 that brings human-machine collaboration and personalization in the foreground, the need for diffusion of data management, cyber physical systems, and AI to solve existing and future manufacturing problems across diverse innovation pathways towards the 2025 Factories of the Future has never been greater.
Supported by four European funded projects (XMANAI , i4Q , INEDIT and ZDMP ) with a focus on different aspects of data management and the use of artificial intelligence in the manufacturing domain, the workshop brings together data scientists and industrial representatives from the digital manufacturing domain alongside the researchers from the areas of smart manufacturing, enterprise information systems, IoT, and AI. The workshop will promote discussion and knowledge sharing about the state-of-the-art developments and research perspectives for the next 5 years in the broad area of Connected Smart Factories.

2nd XMANAI´s General Assembly
Yesterday, we had our 2nd XMANAI’s General Assembly with all partners presenting the progress of the work packages and the project as a whole. We are happy to see things moving towards the defined goals.
1st AI-MAN Workshop
XMANAI was represented by our project coordinator, Michele Sesana and technical coordinator, Fenareti Lampathaki in the first series of ICT-38 Projects Cluster (AI-MAN) workshops on Friday, May 7th 2021. It was organised by our brother project, the STAR project (star-ai.eu).
Nine projects funded under the ICT-38-2020 Call focus on integrating state-of-the-art AI technologies in the manufacturing domain. The AI-MAN cluster, in which the projects joined their forces supported by EFFRA and the Connected Factories project (www.effra.eu/connectedfactories), aims at exploiting synergies between the projects and increasing their impact.
This first workshop aimed to make the participants aware of each project’s objectives, activities and technologies that are being developed and to further expand the potential areas of collaboration. The next steps include, among other, making full use of the mutual communication and dissemination actions, participating in joint events, to organise a series of joint open/public workshops, collaborating in production and sharing the AI assets, joint publications and common standardization activities. A specific shared space for the cluster is also envisaged and the work for its implementation is already under way.
XMANAI participates to the DMP Cluster meeting organized by EFFRA
XMANAI is actively engaged in collaboration activities with other research and innovation projects and industrial working groups. This February, Michele Sesana, the project coordinator presented XMANAI at the DMP Cluster cluster meeting, organised by EFFRA (European Factories of the Future Research Association) in the context of the Connected Factories coordination and support action. As a consequence , EFFRA agreed to create an ICT-38 mailing list for the XMANAI brother and sister projects and to host further collaboration between these projects. We are eager for further actions!
The XMANAI – EU Project has just started!
Our virtual Kick-Off meeting is ongoing with our coordinator Michele Sesana presenting the project. Do you want to know more about Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Manufacturing? Follow us and keep posted on the updates… We are very excited about this initiative!!
