Deep Learn­ing

Tech­nol­o­gy has changed faster and more ground­break­ing­ly than ever before in the last few decades. The human eye has long since been replaced by machine vision in many areas. But clas­si­cal image pro­cess­ing is also reach­ing its lim­its with and in increas­ing­ly com­plex process­es. This is where an area of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI), Deep Learn­ing, comes into play and makes its way into production.

Towards the future with new technology

The pos­si­bil­i­ties offered by Deep Learn­ing are great. At the same time, the new tech­nol­o­gy is intend­ed to com­ple­ment image pro­cess­ing and not replace it. It is impor­tant to Qual­i­ty Automa­tion GmbH to always be at the cut­ting edge of tech­nol­o­gy and to be able to pass this ben­e­fit on to our cus­tomers. There­fore, we are con­tin­u­ous­ly research­ing this top­ic with­in the frame­work of final the­ses or fea­si­bil­i­ty stud­ies. We use the Hal­con and Mer­lic soft­ware from MVTec and the ISD NXT embed­ded vision plat­form from IDS.

What is Deep Learning?

As a sub­field of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, deep learn­ing tech­nol­o­gy uses neu­ronal net­works to imi­tate human intel­li­gence. The math­e­mat­i­cal mod­els are char­ac­terised by the abil­i­ty to learn com­plex cor­re­la­tions and to be trained on anno­tat­ed exam­ples. A neur­al net­work con­sists of a large num­ber of sim­i­lar pro­cess­ing units, the neu­rons, which are inter­con­nect­ed. As a result, Deep Learn­ing com­bines the flex­i­bil­i­ty of human visu­al inspec­tion with the speed and sta­bil­i­ty of a com­put­er-based system.

How do Deep Learn­ing and Machine Vision work together?

AI is used to sup­port the fol­low­ing applications:

  • Com­plex pro­gram­ma­ble image pro­cess­ing pro­grams with rule-based algorithms.
  • Devi­at­ing appear­ance of the parts to be examined
  • Unclear, chang­ing backgrounds
  • Train­ing the algo­rithm with new images
  • Defects that dif­fer sig­nif­i­cant­ly in size and position
