As manufacturers prepare to reap the benefits of Industry 4.0, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven applications are widely expected to play the key role in their success.
These new types of applications will help operators, process engineers, and management solve their operational and production problems with diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive answers. Ultimately, they will increase efficiency, minimize waste, and drive innovation across the factory floor.
But the task of delivering production-grade ML and AI applications have historically proven difficult to execute. Until now.
Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of Mímir – the Oden Operational ML and AI framework. Our framework brings together all the manufacturing data and best-in-breed ML tools and algorithms tailored for manufacturing, as well as an enterprise-grade deployment infrastructure spanning the cloud and the edge.
This framework is designed to manage all steps of the ML and AI application lifecycle, including exploration, training, validation, deployment, and monitoring. Once deployed, it enables manufacturers to build and operationalize mission-critical applications that are robust, verifiable, and scalable. Oden’s ML and AI framework is also designed to be extensible; it supports the creation of both foundational, general-purpose applications in addition to customer and problem-specific models.
