The manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are abandoning their traditional role of legacy executing middle-ware. They are targeting the much wider objective of functional interoperability among autonomous, distributed and collaborative Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
Hungarian DBpedia service is launched on hu.dbpedia.org , as the experimental, beta version of the Hungarian Wikipedia-based knowledge graph. DBpedia converts Wikipedia contents to a format that is machine-readable and -processable, thus providing an extensive amount of data to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other software.
Within the framework of the EPIC project, EPIC InnoLabs, SZTAKI and the Fraunhofer Institute in Stuttgart have collaborated to produce the following questionnaire, which explores the potential of applying artificial intelligence methods in the field of production planning and management.
The oldest news agency of the United States visited the Győr laboratory of SZTAKI to take a look at robotic plant farming.
The joint summer school of SZTAKI and Fraunhofer Society focused on human-robot collaboration, within which it focused on collaborative assembly. Four teams of participants from international engineering consultants learned the details of the human-robot collaboration and were able to analyze the lessons of working together on their own.
The goals set in the cooperation of the parties will help researchers, domestic medical technology developers, manufacturers, and the efforts of the government in the field of health care, thus creating interests for those involved in the health industry.
The Innovation Cluster for Digital Society (Biztonságos Digitális Társadalom Innovációs Klaszter – BDTIK) held its inaugural meeting on July 27, 2021, with the participation of SZTAKI. At the same time, it launched innovative projects aimed at the development of e-government and e-public services, the performance of law enforcement tasks, and the application of artificial intelligence for administrative purposes, which could not yet meet the needs of citizens. The cluster brings together industry-leading public IT service providers, higher education and academic institutions to bring together their research and development activities to further support the digital society through their innovations. The cluster operates within the framework of the National Laboratory for Infocommunications and Information Technology.
As part of this year’s International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling (ICAPS 2021), an open international competition called “Dynamic Pickup And Delivery Problem” organized by Huawei sought a solution to the title challenge.
The EPIC CoE Youtube channel is primarily for those who are interested in engineering sciences. The uploaded videos present details of the operation and research of cyber-physical production systems, such as automated manoeuvres of mobilized robots, assembly by a robotic arm in a collaborative environment, but one may also find complete scientific demonstrations.
Zsolt János Viharos, senior researcher of SZTAKI presented at the IP-IT Academy webinar, organized by the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office.
