AI on the manufacturing edge

While Advanced Analytics and AI are already present in many areas at Continental, one focus topic is bringing these advanced technologies into our manufacturing processes. One major challenge here is to provision AI models that need to run on the shopfloor and therefore on the network edge due to latency constraints. In this talk we show how we facilitate such deployments on an exemplary use case predicting scrap in the extrusion process.
