Workshop

A multimodal AI approach in datascience projects for the industry.

INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING

As we now know, a use case is not answered by a single magical artificial intelligence model that can do everything, but by multiple specialized models, throughout a process that addresses the initial problem.

Moreover, there are more and more so-called multimodal use cases, i.e. involving several types of data within the same process, thus multiplying the complexity of data processing (tabular data and images, language and sound, etc.).

But this multimodality can sometimes be provoked, because it is useful to treat very complex cases, even though we are only working with one type of data at the beginning!
For instance, when we deliberately choose to transform tabular data into images, in order to benefit from the power of image analysis models at some point in the process.
Come and discover in this session, the testimony on two real cases from industry, where we switched the datascience project to a computer vision project in order to find a solution to a problem that would prove difficult to solve without this transformation!

Industrial Cybersecurity. Applications & OT/IT articulation

CYBERSECURITY

An industrial system integrates equipment and software designed to monitor and control the operations of machines, equipment and their associated production lines. The decompartmentalization of the industrial system and the corporate network is becoming widespread. Connected objects are now an integral part of the company’s global information system (IS), increasing its attack surface. The necessary consideration of IoT security, the convergence between IT and OT, are part of an overall reflection on the entire scope of the company. The company can then implement targeted technical and organizational cybersecurity rules, which are applied according to the identified vulnerabilities.

When your materials and production parts become intelligent: Plastronics and organic electronics

Tech / Innovation

Plastronics is a convergence and combination of the electronics and plastics industries that has been taking place since the advent of the connected world.
However, the definition of this discipline is still vague for a large number of manufacturers. Still very few companies have taken the initiative to integrate plastronics into their industrialization process, whereas it is from the upstream phase of the project that these 2 components must be taken into account to achieve optimal results. This conference will be an opportunity to clarify the topic through feedback from companies that have already integrated this discipline internally.

From digital sustainability to energy transition : building the resilience of your company

BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION, CYBERSECURITY, DIGITAL, MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATION, ECOLOGY & TECH, FOOD PROCESSING, INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING, MEDICAL & HEALTH, SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS

Navigating in an uncharted world is now an integral part of strategic scenarios, with greater attention paid to our interdependencies, vulnerabilities and a proactive approach to risk management. If technology has long been considered a vector of growth through innovation, it is now entering the field of corporate and business resilience. Resilience is not resistance, nor is it a headlong rush forward; it is the capacity of a company to face shocks with determination and to integrate them as experiences and opportunities to transform itself and bounce to a new equilibrium. Three key transitions, strongly linked to science, technology and innovation, contribute to the resilience of the company and its ecosystem: the digital transformation to ensure a sustainable and inclusive digital environment, the energy transition to reduce the company’s ecological footprint throughout its value chain, and the transformation of production, in terms of both processes and products & services. This is a true organizational mutation, where situational intelligence goes hand in hand with the employees’ empowerment, where managerial care takes precedence over direction and control, and where decisions shall be driven by the company’s Raison d’être.

Zero-trust in IoT, a new approach to rethink the protection of your key data

CYBERSECURITY

Rethinking the way you approach security across an organization, taking into account every device, application and user connected to it, can seem daunting. The Zero-Trust model can radically improve your organization’s security posture while minimizing operational costs. Instead of following traditional methods, Zero Trust establishes a certain level of trust at each access point – effectively securing users, assets and resources. The Zero Trust model is not limited to IT and extends to OT (operations technologies), ICS (Industrial Control System) and to IoT. Much more than a framework, Zero-Trust is a shift in approach that pushes organizations to rethink how key data is protected, what is monitored, triaged and remediated.

With the exponential deployment of sensors and connected objects, we are collecting a mass of real-world data, which enriches the models of complex systems and the performance of artificial intelligence algorithms. These algorithms, notably Deep Learning and Machine Learning, and their applications are knowledge and decision support tools, and even automatic decision-making tools. They raise questions for humans, with increasing acuity, both about the explicability of results and about the moral values and ethics of our practices integrating these technologies. How can we ensure the relevance of the results to the point of trusting them? For which uses do we retain the advantage over our algorithms? Doesn’t artificial intelligence impose a simplifying point of view of the human being and his environment by reducing them to signals and calculating modes? What is the change in the world necessary for their deployment, and do we have the means to do so? Will the prospects and promises of quantum technology, both in terms of sensors and data analytics, change the game?

AI experts will present the results of their research on these topics and provide an answer to the question: Can the real world be computed?

Waste, recycling, reduction and valorisation of bio-waste: Digital, IoT and robotics at the service of the agro-food industry

FOOD PROCESSING

The environmental and energetic performances are of upmost importance in the agri-food sector, if only for reasons of compliances with the norms and standards. For organic waste in particular, there are several ways of recovering bio-waste, the best known of which are animal feed, composting and methanization. If technologies improve operational efficiency and reduce waste at the source, they do not eliminate it. It is therefore necessary to identify waste, analyze it, and organize its collection and sorting in order to treat and recycle it.

Machine Learning & AI at the service of construction – From 2D to IFC – Industry Foundation Classes- IFC

BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION

BIM (building model infrastructure) has accelerated the digital transition of the construction, building and architecture industries. If the ability to manipulate a 3D rendering of a model is now an industry standard, how can the latest state of the art in AI further address the need to digitize digital rendering practices and digitize infrastructure plans?
This activity is, as it stands, still largely carried out in an artisanal way by an operator in charge of entering the different values of the 2D plan into a dedicated 3D generation software. The idea of automating the process was born from its long and repetitive aspects, as well as the lack of fast operational digitizing tools on the market. This led to the 2D to IFC work.
It is thus in a perspective of optimization of the time spent on the activity that the AI team of Inetum proposes you to discover the main techniques and benefits of machine learning to accelerate the performance of the construction trades.

Green by design, the contribution of embedded software

INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING

Green by Design”, the counterpart of “Secure by Design” in terms of reducing the environmental impact of systems, focuses on everything that goes into the design of products.
Quite naturally, we suspect that a system designed taking into account the future recycling of its components will have a lesser impact on the environment than another product. So we think more about the mechanical and electronic dimension, but what about its firmware ? What importance can the embedded software take in the “Green by Design” methodology? Does the programming language have any influence? Can the way of coding help to achieve energy frugality?
Wouldn’t a good control of the technical debt be, in the long run, a good way?
Open Source can also be a favorable factor: yes, but in what proportions?

To meet the commitments made in terms of reducing GHG emissions, “each part” has a role to play. “Each part” designates an entity within a whole. And depending on the whole that we take into account, the “each part” becomes different.
Thus on a planetary scale, the “each part” can designate each of the states. The bias of this intervention is to consider that each profession / trade has, at its level, a role to play. These are the few themes that will be explored during this presentation. A workshop proposed by SMILE, European leader in integration and outsourcing of open source solutions.

Responsible digital technology: a continuous ecological, economic and social improvement approach.

DIGITAL, MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATION

In 2019, the volume of greenhouse gases emitted by the digital sector in France represented 15 million tons in equivalent carbon, according to the Senate report on the REEN law. The health crisis has accelerated our digital transition, and if we’re not careful, that number could double by 2025. The lifespan of our digital devices, the exponential use of the internet and the storage of our data are at play. Renovation of our data centers, reconditioning and reuse of equipment, frugality of stored data, eco-design of IT architectures and code, but also, implementation of digital technologies for inclusion, health or humanitarian causes, … the approaches of ICT sustainability are manifold. One thing is certain: we must involve employees, suppliers and partners to increase awareness and drive a continuous improvement in our practices to drastically reduce the ecological, economic and social footprint of digital technology.

From the Giga to the Microfactory: An innovative approach to manufacturing that combines technology, design, flexibility & proximity!

INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING

The traditional production line has dominated manufacturing process for decades. The underlying idea behind gigafactories is to achieve economies of scale through the automation of ever larger production facilities. Today, an alternative to this production method is emerging. The term “microfactory” was coined in 1990 by the Mechanical Engineering Laboratory in Japan. Smaller manufacturing units, using robotic cells, make it possible to produce more innovative and, above all, more personalized products, while reducing investment costs and the time needed to get into the operational phase. The manufacturing assembly is no longer a linear process, the manufactured product moves from one cell to another thanks to mobile robots. The addition of cells for greater customization is possible without stopping or disrupting the rest of the production. Rather than having a central big factory, multiple small factories deployed near markets bring the product closer to the customer. Microfactories focus their processes on flexibility and innovation, without foregoing the productivity gains of automation.

Reindustrialize France: innovation leap, industrial acceleration or lost battle?

DIGITAL, MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATION

Reindustrializing France: innovation leap, industrial acceleration or a lost battle? ”
“A lost cause? Que nenni! It is true that France, which was at the forefront of the industrial revolutions from the 1780s to the 1980s, is the developed country that deindustrialized the most over the past 20 years. However, our country has major strengths to ensure the success of its reindustrialization: At the heart of Europe, France holds many collective structures to support industrial development projects, and has an outstanding creative potential and dynamic. The testimony of ALTYOR and SHARELOCK demonstrates in an exemplary way that the solutions to (re)develop industry in our territories lie above all in our capacity for innovation, the opportunities linked to the ecological transition and the collective mobilization of our entrepreneurial spirit of conquest.

Going beyond CSR and ESG criteria with technology for optimal management of scarce resources: raw materials and skills.

BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION, CYBERSECURITY, DIGITAL, MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATION, ECOLOGY & TECH, FOOD PROCESSING, INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING, MEDICAL & HEALTH, SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS

While Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) consists of implementing actions to respect the challenges of sustainable development, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria make it possible to assess how well these challenges are taken into account.

New technologies are considerably changing organizations, with new business practices, work relationships and reinvented decision-making processes. Thus they are leading to new issues of governance and skills management. At the same time, new materials, sensors, IoT, robotics, software and networks, etc. – are improving health and safety in the workplace, tooling companies for their recruitment and training processes, and enabling more efficient management of raw materials and energy.
It is clear that new technologies are essential to meeting legal ESG obligations.
Conversely, a responsible approach to human capital, the environment and stakeholder relations, is a key lever for innovation in products, services and/or processes to develop a competitive advantage and create value, but also a factor in attracting talent and long-term employee commitment to the company project.

Agro 4.0 at the crossroads of new materials, eco-packaging and short supply chain

FOOD PROCESSING

The dynamics of the food system are changing, in terms of production, processing, logistics, marketing and consumption. Today’s food packagings are generally lightweight and meet very specific performance needs. However, they are made of different plastics and often include aluminum. They are difficult to recycle and only provide a theoretical use-by date. Yet, consumers are increasingly attentive to the nutritional and health qualities of what they consume, they demand more detailed information about the origin of products, ethical and sustainable processing methods, and want packaging with a reduced environmental impact. Smart technologies (advanced sensors, QR code, dynamic labeling) and new packaging materials (bio-based, anti-microbial, reusable) are able to provide dynamic control and accurate traceability, shelf life and general food safety information based on actual and effective transportation and storage conditions and environments. The food industry is entering a new era of smart, antimicrobial, biobased, compostable or reusable food packaging that supports food quality and durability, food waste reduction and sustainable practices for both retailers and consumers, all in favor of a circular economy approach.

Choosing the organizational approach and appropriate tools for your data governance?

INDUSTRY / MANUFACTURING

Data governance is defined as the set of processes and procedures that collect, structure and equip the flow, storage and processing of the company’s data, so that it is used (and deleted) in compliance with legal obligations, in trust and in security. The Data Governance must ensure the availability, accessibility, integrity and security of data, but also the efficiency of the data management system so that the uses of data serve a purpose and create value. Whether your objective is to optimize your customer relations or your operations, to have new decision-making tools, to innovate in terms of products and services, etc., data governance has become an essential component of the company’s global strategy. Advanced technological solutions exist (IoT, AI, Machine learning, Natural Language Processing, Data visualization, …) but data governance cannot be implemented without a strategic purpose and objectives to the approach, nor without a multidisciplinary team of business and technical experts. Bringing together the teams and defining the company’s ambition with regard to data are the two crucial steps in choosing the right organizational approach and tools for your ad hoc data gouvernance.
