To tackle the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturing industry has to step up and transform by adopting more standardized, automated, and intelligent solutions. Artificial intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly the key technology to make this happen. Amid this development, the SEA (Southeast Asia) Taiwan AI College is turning the AI manufacturing experiences from leading ICT company, Techman Robot Inc., into free online courses. It will not only train important AI talents in the academe and industry in Southeast Asia, but also help with the digital transformation needs of Taiwanese companies there.
AI Course as Kick Off
AI-enabled collaborative robots play an important role in making AI solutions more widespread. As one of the largest collaborative robot brands, Techman Robot trail blazes in combining AI vision with built-in machine vision in manufacturing.
TM AI + is the industry’s first integration of traditional machine and advanced AI vision in a single robotic system. Without the need for additional controllers, time and money required in past integration have been considerably reduced. The built-in machine vision of robots integrates with light, industrial cameras and sensing elements to capture images. The deep learning technology of AI is also combined in order to accurately sense the shape, type and color of an object as a means to further enhance the inspection efficiency and difficulty in automated production, improving the quality inspection and accuracy in different industries.
In its 11-hour free English online course, Techman Robot will lead the students to explore the basic functions and applications of AI, and help them get to know the two major functions of AI: classification and detection. The course also includes plenty of hands-on practices. Students will be instructed to gather their own samples through the Techman Robot’s TM AI+ platform and create an AI training project, and use it to execute an AI prediction at the end of the lectures.
The online classes started in July.
