Koh Young Technology, the leader in True3D™ measurement-based inspection solutions, will discuss the increasingly significant role of data collection and analysis to enable Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) functionality to improve productivity in our industry. On 16 October during the one-day SMTA Ontario Technical Conference, Joel Scutchfield, General Manager of SMT Business Operations and Director of Sales at Koh Young America will discuss how electronics manufacturers can boost efficiency, improve flexibility, and even achieve self-optimizing processes.

AI is a multidisciplinary field of science with the goal to make machines “Smarter.” Historical applications of this goal included natural language processing and translation, visual perception, pattern recognition, and decision making. The number and complexity of applications have been quickly growing across a variety of industries. Out of all the advancements researchers have made, the current driver of the AI inflection point is thanks to major advances in ‘big data analysis by deep learning.’ By using the right combination of AI technologies, manufacturers can boost their efficiency, improve flexibility, speed up processes, and even achieve self-optimizing processes at production sites. Equipment providers like Koh Young are enabling Smart Factories by adopting AI to generate “knowledge” from “data.”

“Today’s larger and more complex inspection data sets make efficient data handling, storage, and analysis critical to success,” says Joel. “The data allows users to identify trends, analyze defects, and improve processes using inspection machines that collect the right data in the right amount and in the right way. This allows AI-powered software tools to turn measurement-based data into actionable insights.”
