AI algorithms and methods unsuitable for embedded systems
Usually, embedded systems are specifically adapted to their task such as data acquisition or control or signal processing in a device and optimised for minimal cost, space, energy and memory consumption. The numerous existing AI algorithms and methods, in contrast, usually operate on much more powerful, larger, more energy-intensive and more expensive computing technology and are unsuitable for embedded systems. In addition, there are often too few data sets available for applications to train an AI, such as from fault situations on a machine for which predictive maintenance is to be supported with AI.
We optimise AI algorithms and methods for embedded systems
We are researching to optimise AI algorithms and methods so that they can be used on embedded systems. For predictive maintenance applications, for example, we are working on generating artificial data, increasing robustness and transferring the solutions to similar problems.
