5G has been built on the foundation of innovation and creativity. Since its inception, 5G has been continuously investing in research and technology to build "alpha" (that removes technology risks) and "beta" (that removes commercial risks) prototypes of new and innovative technologies in the areas of digital automation. As part of the alpha research initiatives, 5G has recently entered into a research collaboration with Durham University and University of Northumbria - two leading universities in the UK.
The research with Durham University is in the area of Machine Learning of Process/Production Monitoring Rules. The research study focuses on generation of an automated rule base for the adoption of predictive and preventative maintenance, in order to achieve Reliability Excellence within an organization. This includes research on the application of AI techniques such as model based reasoning and/or learning algorithms for achieving context sensitive rule generation from real time production data.
