Industrial AI

Industrial AI is the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI & ML) to address the opportunities and challenges presented in Industry 4.0. This is an important area of research that is gaining prominence due to the ever-increasing number of connected equipment and corporations trying to utilize the latest technologies to enhance their industrial operations.

At Hitachi America Research and Development Division (R&D), we have developed several AI based methods for the following areas:

  • Maintenance and Repair Analytics: This includes performance monitoring, remaining useful life estimation, failure prediction, and maintenance recommendations.
  • Operation Optimization: This includes operation monitoring, operator profiling, activity time prediction, and scheduling recommendation.
  • Quality Enhancement: This includes quality monitoring, batch quality prediction, and operating envelop recommendation

We have successfully applied many of our research results to a wide array of verticals such as manufacturing, mining, mobility, energy and healthcare.

Besides investigating the use of AI&ML to real world use cases, we are also investigating several fundamental research topics, such as new deep learning architectures for machine sensor data, knowledge extraction from industrial corpus, use of deep reinforcement learning for industrial applications, hybrid modeling of industrial equipment and processes, decision making under uncertainty. The ultimate goal of this research is to achieve an end-to-end optimization and automation of industrial operations. Hitachi America R&D is emerging as a leader in Industrial AI with a track record of patent applications, contributions to the research community and the completion of successful real-world applications. Come join us as we revolutionize Industry 4.0.
