Siemens and Google Cloud cooperate on AI-powered solutions in manufacturing
Google Cloud has partnered with industrial automation and software technology provider Siemens to cooperate in optimizing factory processes and improving shop floor productivity.
Siemens intends to integrate Google Cloud’s leading data cloud and artificial intelligence / machine learning (AI / ML) technologies into its factory automation solutions to help manufacturers ‘innovate for the better’. to come up”.
According to Siemens, data drives today’s industrial processes, but many manufacturers continue to use legacy software and multiple systems to analyze plant information, which is resource intensive and requires upgrades. frequent manual updates to ensure accuracy – and what’s more, as AI projects have been rolled out By many companies located in ‘islands’ across the factory, manufacturers have’ struggled to implement large-scale AI in their global operations ”.
For over 170 years, Siemens has built its business on pioneering technologies that have driven the manufacturing industry forward.
Siemens says that by combining the data cloud and AI / ML capabilities of Google Cloud with Siemens’ Digital Industries Factory Automation portfolio, manufacturers will be able to harmonize their factory data, run models cloud-based AI / ML in addition to this data and deploy algorithms. at the edge of the network – enabling applications such as visual product inspection or forecasting machine wear on the assembly line.
According to Siemens, deploying AI in the workshop and integrating it into automation and network is a complex task, which requires highly specialized expertise and innovative products such as Siemens Industrial Edge – and the goal of cooperation between Google Cloud and Siemens is to make Industrial Edge — and its management at scale — easier, empowering employees when they work in the factory, automating mundane tasks, and improving overall quality.
“The potential of artificial intelligence to radically transform the factory floor is far from exhausted. Many manufacturers are still stuck in AI “pilot projects” today – we want to change that, ”said Axel Lorenz, vice president of control at Factory Automation of Siemens Digital Industries.
“The combination of Google Cloud’s AI / ML technology with Siemens solutions for Industrial Edge and industrial operations will be a game-changer for the manufacturing industry.”
Dominik Wee, General Manager Manufacturing and Industry at Google Cloud, said, “Siemens is a leader in industrial automation and software, and Google Cloud is a leader in data analytics and AI / ML.
“This cooperation will combine the best of both worlds and bring AI / ML to the large-scale manufacturing industry. By simplifying the deployment of AI in industrial use cases, we help employees increase their critical work on the shop floor. “
