Data Intensive Manufacturing Environment Laboratory
Merging the Physical and Digital Realms towards Cyber-Physical Manufacturing Systems.
Research and technology development in discrete and continuous manufacturing processes.
WHAT WE DO
Blockchain in Manufacturing
We have created the first of its implementation of a decentralized approach to handle manufacturing information generated by various organizations using blockchain technology. This decentralized network of manufacturing machines and computing nodes can enable automated transparency of an organization’s capability, third party verification of such capability and automated mechanisms to drive paperless contracts between participants using ‘smart contracts’.
Cloud Manufacturing Platforms
Manufacturing Data is distributed across multiple entities and enterprises. Access to such data is nearly impossible due to restrictions on data ownership, intellectual property, data privacy of those who own the data. Yet, Manufacturing is a tremendous asset and that which is hardly leveraged by small and medium scale manufacturing businesses. This work will focus on distributed machine learning algorithms with data privacy as a focus. This is driven by enabling sharing data assets across organizational boundaries.
