We got another project! This is an AI REGIO project (Regions and DIHs alliance for AI-driven digital transformation of European Manufacturing SMEs) within the H2020-EU program.2.1.1. – INDUSTRIAL LEADERSHIP – Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies – Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The aim of the AI REGIO project is to fill the 3 main gaps currently preventing artificial intelligence-based DIHs from introducing fully effective digital transformation pathways for their SMEs in manufacturing:
at the policy level, the regional and EU gaps;
at the technological level, a gap in digital production compared to the innovation cooperation platform;
at the business level, the gap between innovative AI (Industry 5.0) compared to Industry 4.0.
POLITICS. Regional smart specialization strategies for efficient sustainable production and digital transformation (VANGUARD initiative for industrial modernization) are so far insufficiently coordinated and integrated at interregional and EU level. Innovation in SMEs> AI cannot be extended to become pan-European in global markets, and SME-led experiments remain trapped in an overly local dimension.
TECHNOLOGY. The DMP digital production platforms and the DIH Digital Innovation Hubs play a fundamental role in implementing the Digital Single Market and Digital Industry Directives for SMEs, but so far such initiatives, communities and innovation campaigns have taken place in a completely independent, if not imaginary, way. the challenges associated with the platform are not of interest to DIHs, and the socio-business impact is not of interest to DMP.
BUSINESS. A number of industrial data platforms based on IOT Data and Motion and Analytics Analytics Rest have recently been developed to implement efficient pilot projects in Industry 4.0 (I4MS Phase III platforms). The artificial intelligence revolution and the new relationship between autonomous systems and humans (Industry 5.0) in I4MS have not yet been adequately addressed.
AI REGIO follows the 4 steps for the VANGUARD (learn-connect-demonstrate-commercialize) innovation strategy by constantly coordinating its methods with the AI DIH Network initiative and its resources with the I4MS / DIH BEinCPPS II and MIDIH / L4MS Phase III projects.
