AIRE club #11, Kuressaare

Good entrepreneurs!

We invite you to the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Center AIRE club event, where Sporrong Eesti and Incap Estonia will present their inspiring use cases.

In September, the volume of unemployment output in Estonia fell to the level of four years ago, undergoing a 7.5% decline. How to maintain competitiveness in the face of rising input prices, overcome logistics and commodity problems, increase efficiency and maintain quality? What are the consequences of the Ukraine crisis? Should and where to invest? These are the questions that finding the answers will help us out of the slump. One possibility is to increase the level of digitization and thereby apply artificial intelligence and robotics solutions in the company.

The AIRE club in Kuressaare this time focuses on various interesting and inspiring cases in which industrial companies have implemented artificial intelligence or robotics solutions. Let’s hear what prompted these decisions to digitize the industry, how the process was carried out, what benefits and impacts have come from it, what have been the main learning points and setbacks?

Program:
15:30 assembly, drinks and snacks
16:00 AIRE club opening:
Andres Sutt (Rigidkogu, AIRE council member)
Kirke Maar (CEO of AIRE)
16:10 Sporrong Estonia: Applying artificial intelligence to transform acid residues into useful tools. Tarmo Beach

INVITATION TO THE WEBINAR: HUMAN-CENTERED HIGH TECHNOLOGY IN FACTORIES OF THE FUTURE

AIRE (AI & Robotics Estonia) invites you to a webinar where they talk about industry 5.0, i.e. the cooperation between humans and high technology and its value in industry.

When participating in the webinar, the company receives minor assistance in the amount of €200 per participant.

TARGET GROUP
Small and medium-sized processing industry (EMTAK C) and manufacturing companies are welcome.

The courses are aimed at employees of industrial companies who want to get acquainted with the possibilities of digitization of production and industrial robots. All industrial managers, engineers, foremen, automatists, mechatronics, technicians, locksmiths, industrial operators, product manufacturers (including warehouse workers, electricians), IT specialists and others are welcome.

The webinar will be conducted by the leaders of the field from the Institute of Technology of the University of Tartu: associate professor of robotics Karl Kruusamäe and lecturer Veiko Vunder of robotics technology.

PURPOSE
There is a lot of talk in the industry about making production more efficient and increasing the variety of products. However, conventional automation solutions do not offer this to us because they require a large number of repetitive tasks.

Industry 5.0 creates a flexible work environment for us, where the production process benefits from the cooperation of humans and high technology, so that the strengths of both parties ensure the most efficient production process possible, and the person is freed from those tedious activities that can be delegated to the machine.

The webinar provides an overview of how technology shapes the human work environment and the potential of such solutions.

THEMES
Upon successful completion of the seminar, participants will gain knowledge of:
➠ about the value proposition of human and technology cooperation in industry;
➠ high technology (collaborative robotics, mixed reality, autonomous robot systems, etc.), which enable the creation of flexible Industry 5.0 production processes.

Webinar passers will receive a certificate of continuing education from the University of Tartu.

The deadline for registering on the website is December 1, 2022.

By registering for an AIRE training, seminar or other service for the first time, the company will also receive minor help from IMECC OÜ in terms of the digital maturity assessment consulting service. Read more about the digital maturity consulting service HERE. The digital maturity assessment consulting service helps to map your company’s strengths, bottlenecks and their impact on the company’s operations.
