AUDIo
Auditing ML-based data driven services

Funded by:

Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

Description
AUDIo will digitize the re-calibration and re-configuration of machines, which currently is a pure manual service requiring expert knowledge. In the future, the machine operators shall be enabled to perform these tasks on their own. This will be achieved by an AR-based assistant that guides the machine operators through the entire re-calibration and re-configuration process, the sensor-based measurement of calibration data, and the remote computation of re-configuration parameters supported by AI and machine learning techniques. Additionally, AUDIo will make use of the Distributed Ledger Technology to log the generated data and performed (inter-)actions in a secure, immutable, and thus auditable way.
