Google Cloud has teamed with KonnectAi to offer AI-powered quality inspection solutions for manufacturers at this year’s Hannover Messe, taking place April 22-26 in Hanover, Germany.

Montreal-based KonnectAi offers visual inspection systems powered by image recognition algorithms manufacturers can deploy to automate quality inspection.

To trace a product, manufacturers can scan a product’s serial number to trace an item. KonnectAi’s platform then displays images taken during the inspection.

The AI-powered solution can be integrated into existing quality inspection workflows and can be deployed on any camera. It can perform a customer sample inspection in just five seconds, the company claims.

Under the partnership, KonnectiAi will use Google Cloud’s development platform to provide manufacturers with improved tools to monitor product quality.

The Canadian company is also leveraging Google Cloud’s suite of data analytics solutions like BigQuery to help customers to gain insights on product checks.

“Our mission is to provide manufacturers of all shapes and sizes with simple, easy-to-use technology so they can grow without compromise and evolve using AI on their own terms,” said Jarred Knecht, KonnectAi president. “Now companies of all sizes can have a transformative edge in the market without complexity, cost and resource requirements that are typically associated with large-scale technology implementations.

“This is the power of AI as it applies to manufacturing, and by using AI for something like quality inspection, this is a first step for manufacturers to introduce AI to their business and at the same time provide instant, tangible return on investment.”

“KonnectAi is addressing the manufacturing industry’s vital market need for AI use in a tangible way,” said Carrie Tharp, Google Cloud vice president for strategic industries.

“KonnectAi empowers manufacturing workforces to engage with AI technology for improved quality and efficiency. We’re proud to collaborate with KonnectAi in bringing much needed, high-tech AI tools to market.”
