EXPERTISE

data science & machine learning.

The vast domain of AI is rapidly entering the high-tech industry. We focus on data science & machine learning (ML), referring to a system/machine that, without explicit programming, can learn from its environment and therefore may adapt its behaviour. In mechatronic system development, building on our domain knowledge and user understanding, we can apply ML to increase functionality, improve performance, automate activity and reduce cost. We do not engage in exploratory data analysis or algorithm development per se, but rather specialize in state-of-the-art ML implementation in hardware and software systems.

filtering data, training algorithms.

In ML implementation, we have two focus areas. In the field of machine vision, we have a 20-year ML track record. The upcoming area of time series & control allows us to apply ML, for example, to systems that are equipped with multiple sensors, for combining and filtering data. Among our specialties are preparing data for efficient training of ML algorithms and using synthetic data for the training. This is cheaper than using a dedicated physical test set-up, and faster than real-life training, where it takes a long time before the rare events have been trained.

“Many parties are active in the field of machine learning, but they always run into a lack of domain knowledge to develop a good algorithm. We know all about the domain of mechatronics and system engineering and combine this with our machine learning knowledge. Basically, we develop the intelligence of our systems. They convert sensor data into information. For example in the medical domain, where we use sensor data about heart rate and ventilation to gain insight into the (breathing) strength of the patient. This information is then used by doctors to determine whether a patient can already leave the IC or not.”

addressing expectations and reservations.

We are aware of the expectations and the reservations that surround ML, and AI in general. We will stay away from the hype, in each case reviewing the need for ML critically; when a classical data analysis solution is sufficient, we will adopt it. On the other hand, we acknowledge the non-explainable character of ML. In the medical domain, for example, we take into account the concerns about the autonomy of professionals and the safety of (patient-related) procedures. Wherever ML is accepted by the regulatory body and the customer, we can exploit the major benefits.
