Opening of the CAIT - Center for Artificial Intelligence Talents - in Karlsruhe

ELABO equips a networked factory with various products and its Elution® software and creates the basis for AI algorithms by automatically recording and storing process-oriented data.

The topic of artificial intelligence (AI) has been on everyone's lips for quite some time. Rarely, however, does anyone talk about the human talents required to generate AI. The initiative of Prof. Dr. Dr. Jivka Ovtcharova from KIT in Karlsruhe starts at exactly this "sore point".

The generation and processing of relevant amounts of data is the basis for every kind of artificial intelligence. In this context, ELABO is active in various research projects. In the newly opened CAIT at the Institute for Information Management in Engineering (IMI) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, ELABO equipped a networked factory with various exhibits and its Elution® software.

As Thomas Hösle, Managing Director of ELABO GmbH, explained at the official opening of CAIT, ELABO sees itself as a bridge-builder between the two worlds of "theory and practice". This is why the company is represented in CAIT with interesting applications. In particular, ELABO's Elution® factory software, with its automated collection and storage of process-oriented data (Smart Data), creates the basis for the algorithms based on it, e.g. the optimization of production processes using KI.
In CAIT, ELABO demonstrates this by means of a practical case over the entire life cycle of an electrical device. From customer-specific configuration, order creation, creation of a parts list and assembly of the device as well as its packaging and dispatch to servicing - data is generated and recorded by Elution® throughout the entire cycle.

The official opening of CAIT took place in Karlsruhe on 23.07.2019. Representatives from politics and economy took part in the event. Prof. Dr. Dr. Ovtcharova, Head of IMI, presented the concept of the new center at the beginning. Keynote speaker Daniel Mattes, founder of AI-42 Market Intelligence Ltd., explained to the attendees how AI will affect the future and what far-reaching opportunities this will bring. The CAIT concept was then presented and viewed in various live sessions.
From now on, application examples developed in cooperation with KIT students will be shown on three floors. In the future, CAIT will offer students and PhD students the opportunity to update themselves on the current state of research in the field of AI by means of practical applications and to experiment with them.
