AI and Knowledge Graphs for Integrating Cyber Physical Resources
Abstract: Artificial intelligence has reached the broad masses. More and more applications of AI and machine learning are finding their way into practice. In this keynote I will talk about the perspectives of artificial intelligence in industry 4.0 in general, as well as show two practical examples. The first one will target multi-agent systems for personalized and individualized production operations in smart factories, while the second discusses knowledge graphs as a knowledge representation instrument for smart semantic search on error causes in production processes. Knowledge Graphs help to better understand complex tasks in the industry by integrating cyber physical resources, thus facilitating and optimizing the problem-solving process.
