Industrial Robot and AI Laboratory

We are working on deep learning (DL) algorithms, which can automatically learn features to avoid a lot of time-consuming engineering. These algorithms are basically based on building massive convolutional neural networks (CNN) that were inspired by human brain. This work resulted in a highly distributed neural network with over 100 million parameters trained on more than 10 thousand GPU cores that learned by itself to discover things you need. All aspects of the manufacturing process often require inspection and detection, often done by tons of persons with their eyes. By this means, it?s hard to have consistent results; consequently, our team is trying to solve this problem. As part of this work, our team (CiRA team) aims to provide AI technology to the masses of companies in our country such as Seagate Technology (Thailand) Limited, Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL, Thai Steel Cable Public Company Limited, etc. All projects were fully funded by The Thailand Research Fund (TRF), National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), and companies. We also provide AI solutions to our Collaboration such as SCG, and Index Living mall, etc.
