A new "Inter­net" for the indus­try

Digi­tal chan­ge in indus­try is chan­ging pro­ces­ses, methods and pro­ce­du­res in pro­duc­tion and logistics. In the con­cre­te imple­men­ta­ti­on, howe­ver, even inno­va­ti­ve pionee­ring com­pa­nies often reach their limits. What appears to be con­clu­si­ve and error-free in the con­cep­ti­on pha­se, fails in test ope­ra­ti­on due to hurd­les that initi­al­ly appe­ar banal.
Con­ven­tio­nal Inter­net tech­no­lo­gies – which are desi­gned for com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on bet­ween peop­le – are unsui­ta­ble for the requi­re­ments of inter­na­tio­nal com­pe­ti­ti­on for reli­able, fle­xi­ble, indus­tri­al­ly manu­fac­tu­red pro­duc­ts, ser­vices and sys­tems. Rather, indus­try needs a dif­fe­rent Inter­net and its own ope­ra­tio­nal envi­ron­ment.

The Fraun­ho­fer-Gesell­schaft has set its­elf the goal of pro­mo­ting such an "Inter­net for indus­try" by deve­lo­ping cogni­ti­ve Inter­net tech­no­lo­gies. To this end, the broad ran­ge of tech­no­lo­gy and app­li­ca­ti­on com­pe­ten­ci­es pai­red with agi­le deve­lop­ment for­mats are to be used wit­hin our rese­arch orga­ni­za­ti­on.

With the new solu­ti­ons from the fields of cogni­ti­ve sen­sor tech­no­lo­gy, data sover­eig­n­ty and data eco­no­mics, as well as new methods of machi­ne lear­ning, it should be pos­si­ble, among other things, to

to iden­ti­fy and loca­te plants, work­pie­ces and trans­por­ted goods wit­hout any doubt,
to be able to app­ly machi­ne lear­ning methods in a tar­get-ori­en­ted man­ner even when the data­ba­se is small,
Ensu­re the trans­pa­ren­cy and trust­wort­hi­ness of AI and ML pro­ce­du­res,
be able to react to events in real time,
Make com­ple­xi­ty of sys­tems con­troll­ab­le,
data-dri­ven value chains and much more.

We want to take a first look behind the sce­nes of this visi­on on Novem­ber 22, 2018 in Ber­lin – at the "Fraun­ho­fer Day for Cogni­ti­ve Inter­net Tech­no­lo­gies: Revo­lu­tio­na­ry Solu­ti­ons for Indus­try".
