Siemens, Microsoft join forces to bring generative AI to factory automation

Siemens and Microsoft have partnered to use generative artificial intelligence to help industrial companies in various aspects such as product design, engineering, manufacturing and operations. Siemens’ Teamcenter software for product lifecycle management will integrate with Microsoft’s Teams platform and Azure OpenAI Service language models, as part of the collaboration.

The development of OpenAI’s ChatGPT has sparked discussions about generative AI and led to significant technological advancements in various industries. At the Hannover Messe, Siemens and Microsoft will showcase the benefits of using generative AI in factory automation and operations. They will demonstrate how AI-powered software development, problem reporting, and visual quality inspection can improve manufacturing processes.

“The integration of AI into technology platforms will profoundly change how we work and how every business operates,” says Scott Guthrie, the executive vice president of cloud and AI at Microsoft. “With Siemens, we are bringing the power of AI to more industrial organizations, enabling them to simplify workflows, overcome silos and collaborate in more inclusive ways to accelerate customer-centric innovation.”

Siemens and Microsoft are continuing their collaboration of 35 years by working together to develop a solution that enables design engineers to receive quick feedback. The solution makes use of mobile devices that can record and report product design or quality issues via natural speech.

Siemens has developed a solution to assist engineers in optimizing and debugging code in programmable logic controllers for factory automation. It utilizes natural language inputs to generate code with reduced errors and time-saving benefits, the company says.

“Powerful, advanced artificial intelligence is emerging as one of the most important technologies for digital transformation,” says Cedrik Neike, a member of the managing board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries. “Siemens and Microsoft are coming together to deploy tools like ChatGPT so we can empower workers at enterprises of all sizes to collaborate and innovate in new ways.”

The two companies collaborated to create an AI technology that helps with visual inspections of manufacturing plants for quality control purposes. They will demonstrate how machine learning systems can use images and videos from cameras to create and manage AI vision models. It will make use of Microsoft Azure machine learning and Siemens’ Industrial Edge capabilities.
