COgnitive Assisted agile manufacturing for a LAbor force supported by trustworthy Artificial Intelligence

Project description

A cutting-edge intelligent assistant for training in manufacturing

Europe is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled workers in sectors like textile manufacturing. The solution is effective training to upgrade the skills of new workers. However, for many companies, the costs of such training sessions are prohibitive. The EU-funded COALA project will design and develop a cutting-edge Digital Intelligent Assistant for the manufacturing sector. At its core is the privacy-focused, open-source voice assistant, Mycroft. COALA will integrate, for instance, augmented quality analytics, an experimental mechanism for explainable AI, and features for the assistance of on-the-job training. An AI-focused change management process and guidelines for professional worker education will complement the technical work. The project will significantly decrease the costs of failures in manufacturing and will reduce training time for workers.
