Eyecon2 Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning
There is growing requirement for Artificial Intelligence (AI) for business, industrial and public sectors. A 2019 study commissioned by the National Standards Authority of Ireland revealed almost 40% of Irish companies currently use AI technology with over 50% planning to deploy AI by 2024. AI solutions will boost the economic growth an average of 1.7% across 16 industries by 2035.
Innopharma Technology are excited to announce that the image analysis software EyePASS for Eyecon2 now has AI capabilities. This Machine Learning (ML) injection into the non-product contact, real time, particle size and shape analyser drastically boosts the Eyecon2 material detection. The Eyecon2 is used in industries where the size and shape of raw material particles is mission critical, such as pharmaceuticals, mining, agriculture, energy, plastics etc. EyePASS, the image analysis software, utilizes cutting edge AI to measure a wider new range of materials. The Eyecon2 also offers IIoT interconnectivity capability to embed it as a sensor within Industry 4.0, Smart Factories.
The image analysis method of the new EyePASS V 3.0 software is developed using supervised machine learning (ML) to detect and segment particles. The ML method utilises a convolutional neural network (CNN) that automatically discovers features from labelled data (images of particles). The CNN iterates and improve its feature extraction of the image. The features of interest are not systematically extracted but are learned by the network, offering superior adaptability when compared to traditional computer vison systems.
Key Benefits with EyePASS V 3.0
- In-line particle analysis serving all industries, not just pharmaceuticals
- Benefit from Industry 4.0 technology available today not tomorrow
- Marry physical production with smart digital technology
- Leading edge industrial hardware, software and AI
- Enhanced measuring accuracy
- Simplifying real-time process intelligence
- Automate control of your processes with IIoT ready technology
- Lighten the industrial carbon footprint with reduced waste in time, materials and labour
