Exciting Advance Automation Manufacturing

Top 6 exciting Advance Automation Manufacturing.Automation in technology is one of the central, crucial elements of almost all manufacturing processes. Automation is arguably the impetus behind manufacturing, dating back to the Industrial Revolution. In the centuries since, as technology has advanced and new inventions have gained prominence, these processes have only gotten more sophisticated. Here are six recent advances in automation that are making big waves in the manufacturing industry.1. Cloud storage for wireless data - One of the greatest advances in automation is one that stands to benefit every industry is cloud storage. Cloud storage allows you to store all data wirelessly. All data from almost every machine can be automatically uploaded, ensuring that all information is backed up over a wireless network. Additionally, in case of any computer crashes, all of your data is completely safe, accessible from any computer and waiting to be recovered from the cloud.2. Diode lasers for creating “invisible” seams - Diode lasers are adding greater efficiency in assembly processes in the automotive industry. Audi, the German car manufacturer, recently implemented robot controlled 13-kW diode lasers in their Ingolstadt factory. This allowed the company to create an “invisible” weld on the car shell, providing additional structural security throughout the car. By programming these diode lasers, Audi is coupling automation with a host of other advanced processes, such as welding and bonding. As a result, the manufacturer is reducing car weight, production time, and energy costs due to regenerative braking in conveyor and lift systems.3. 3D Printing in manufacturing for finished components - 3D printing is one of the biggest recent advances in manufacturing and automation. Although the technology has been around since the 1980s, machines were previously too large and the process was too slow for widespread adoption. Today, however, 3D printers have become so developed that these machines are used to produce finished parts. These machines now have the capability for improved accuracy and capacities for increased sizes and production runs. As a result, they are being adopted into processes throughout industries. The military, for example, conjectures that it may be able to print replacement parts in the battlefield. The advantages of automated 3D printing are many. It allows much more affordable manufacture of complex, highly customized, and efficient designs—3D printed products can be lighter, stronger, and require less assembly. One machine can be responsible for a number of product lines, with production lines of as many or as few units as needed.3D printers additionally allow for point-of-assembly or point-of-consumption printing. They present a lower barrier of entry to manufacturing, and open up a number of new supply chain or retail opportunities.4. Extremely small machines for nonmanufacturing - Nanomanufacturing—the manufacture of material on a molecular or even atomic level—has been recently gaining steam. It is expected to play a future role in the production of items such as high-efficiency solar cells and batteries. Nanomanufacturing is most promising for nonmanufacturing purposes such as biosystem-based medical applications. A sensor inside your body, for instance, could help your doctor monitor cancer levels. Future generations of electronics and computing devices may also heavily rely on nonmanufacturing.5. 24-Hour manufacturing operations - Continuous, 24-hour manufacturing operations have come a long way in current years. Industrial robots can operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, performing repeatable processes. The greatest advance in today’s automated 24-hour machines the increasingly fine precision they can achieve. These machines can now be accurate to hundredths of a second and in less space than is detectable by the human eye. The expense associated with industrial robots has also fallen as much as 50% compared with human labor since 1990. This allows manufacturers to achieve higher productivity and efficiency without additional labor costs.6. Sensing, measurement, and process control - Automation has not only become more widespread in recent years, it has also become finer and more sophisticated. Industrial robots are now outfitted with additional sensing, measurement, and process control transmitters that help to guide increasingly nimble machines. These transmitters provide the information necessary to manage the operation of the factory as a whole. Products can be tracked from inception all the way to the point of delivery. Sensing, measurement, and process control transmitters further make it easier and more reliable to allow machines to operate without personnel. In case anything should go wrong, such as the humidity around an automated spray system being harmful for paint, the sensor can detect the issue and issue an alert at the moment of the incident, sending a signal to the machine operator or even to the plant manager’s cellphone.https://www.arnoldmachine.com/6-exciting-advances-manufacturing-automation/ more

How can AI be Dangerous?

HOW CAN AI BE DANGEROUS?Most researchers agree that a super intelligent AI is unlikely to exhibit human emotions like love or hate, and that there is no reason to expect AI to become intentionally benevolent or malevolent. Instead, when considering how AI might become a risk, experts think two scenarios most likely:1. The AI is programmed to do something devastating: Autonomous weapons are artificial intelligence systems that are programmed to kill. In the hands of the wrong person, these weapons could easily cause mass casualties. Moreover, an AI arms race could inadvertently lead to an AI war that also results in mass casualties. To avoid being thwarted by the enemy, these weapons would be designed to be extremely difficult to simply “turn off,” so humans could plausibly lose control of such a situation. This risk is one that’s present even with narrow AI, but grows as levels of AI intelligence and autonomy increase.2. The AI is programmed to do something beneficial, but it develops a destructive method for achieving its goal: This can happen whenever we fail to fully align the AI’s goals with ours, which is strikingly difficult. If you ask an obedient intelligent car to take you to the airport as fast as possible, it might get you there chased by helicopters and covered in vomit, doing not what you wanted but literally what you asked for. If a super intelligent system is tasked with a ambitious geoengineering project, it might wreak havoc with our ecosystem as a side effect, and view human attempts to stop it as a threat to be met.As these examples illustrate, the concern about advanced AI isn’t malevolence but competence. A super-intelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing its goals, and if those goals aren’t aligned with ours, we have a problem. You’re probably not an evil ant-hater who steps on ants out of malice, but if you’re in charge of a hydroelectric green energy project and there’s an anthill in the region to be flooded, too bad for the ants. A key goal of AI safety research is to never place humanity in the position of those ants.https://futureoflife.org/background/benefits-risks-of-artificial-intelligence/?cn-reloaded=1 more
