The role of Artificial Intelligence in the industry 4.0

Artificial intelligence deals with the ability of machines to simulate human mental competences. AI can effectively boost the manufacturing sector, changing the strategies used to implement and tune productive processes by exploiting information acquired at real-time. Industry 4.0 integrates critical technologies of control and computing. In this talk, we discuss the integration of Knowledge Representation, Ontology modelling with Deep Learning technology, with the aim of optimizing orchestration and dynamic management of resources. We review Artificial Intelligence techniques used in Industry 4.0, and we show an adaptable and extensible contextual model for creating context-aware computing infrastructures in IoT. We also address deep learning techniques for optimizing manufacturing resources, assets management and dynamic scheduling. The application of this model ranges from small embedded devices to high-end service platforms. The presented deep learning techniques are designed to solve numerous critical challenges in Industrial and IoT Intelligence, such as application adaptation, interoperability, automatic code verification, and generation of a device-specific intelligent interface.
