What is your personal background?
I started working at Bonfiglioli in Slovakia in 2022 in the Operation Engineering department, where I take care of the assembly machines and possible improvements that can be applied to the system where possible.
First I worked for a small Italian company that produces industrial machines, where I became interested in the world of industrial automation.
I studied Computer and Electronic Engineering at Ferrara University, where I followed some courses regarding automation.
What is your organization’s role in knowlEdge?
Bonfiglioli is one of the three industries participating in the project as a demonstrator.
Beside demonstrating the effectiveness of tools, in our case we provide the hardware (after the consultation and suggestion from the other technique companies) and the material regarding the control of determinate objects via camera. The goal is not only to demonstrate the ability of knowledge to solve specific problems, but also how the implementation of new hardware can be really easy.
What fascinates you about Artificial Intelligence for manufacturing?
What fascinates me about Artificial Intelligence is that it can be applied and integrated easily to support and improve the human job and Knowledge is going perfectly in this way.
What are your expectations in knowlEdge?
My expectations are that the Knowledge platform can be online as soon as possible, be accessible and that the AI solution/model provided can cover most of the problems that companies have, and that the recommended solutions can become increasingly easier over time to integrate and robust in terms of results.
Which target groups can benefit from knowlEdge?
Certainly many manufacturing companies like us Pilots, but also the suppliers of some companies, can draw help from Knowledge, as they can provide better and more versatile solutions to the companies they supply.
What is your vision beyond knowlEdge?
That it can make the implementation of AI models much simpler, both for the companies themselves and for the people who will then use them in the industrial sector; so that AI is seen as a tool of support and help and not vice versa.
