Google has launched a cloud based artificial intelligence that will serve in the process of visual inspection. The system is built with manufacturers of packaged consumables in mind. As a result, companies should be able to reduce scrap and defects, increasing their operational margins while decreasing product costs. Google has supported quality assurance processes in the past through general application, but this new system is focused on specific outcomes and presents the next level of artificial intelligence in manufacturing.
- Manufactures as well as other businesses around the globe are able to reduce defects and process operational savings from the manufacture as well as the inspection process.
- Manufacturers spend billions of dollars each year on defective products.
- Al will visually inspect products, which enables the product to be identified quickly and accurately as defective.
“Today, defects in products such as computer chips, cars, machinery, and other products cost manufacturers billions of dollars annually. In fact, quality-related costs can consume 15% to 20% of sales revenue.”
