Cognitive Factories

Posted on October 8th, 2011

 

Cognitive factories are a new paradigm in production engineering towards a more flexible, adaptable, and reliable production. According to this paradigm, the machines and processes in a factory are equipped with cognitive capabilities that involve reasoning about goals, perception, actions, collaborative task execution, etc. to allow them to assess and increase their scope of operation autonomously.

We propose to use causality-based formal representation and automated reasoning methods from artificial intelligence for such a cognitive factory with multiple teams of robots and humans, where each team tries to complete a complex assembly task, and where teams communicate with each other for efficiently sharing common resources.
