From the series that make you question how long until AI systems become our overlords, I bring you Kinta, who, in the words of its CEO wants to become “the manufacturer execution system.”
The Kinta AI was designed specifically to to help increase efficiency inside factories, where late manufacturing orders and scheduling errors seem to occur due to software that is not helping the factory owners take good production decisions.
Unlike the software the factories have come to rely on, the Kinta AI uses reinforcement learning in order to become the best software for a specific factory business that it can be. The system will gain understanding of how the factory works via statistics and manage to understand what actions work in order to get the desired result, and then reinforce those actions.
The AI works through millions of factory simulations in order to gain statistical knowledge and, though it just came to life recently, the Kinta AI already has a few customers waiting in line, including BASF, an English chemical manufacturer.
