The Ho Chi Minh City-based Vitalify Asia Co., which specializes in artificial intelligence (AI) research and development, launched its AI model development center for inspections on June 3.

The company has built a system that quickly mass-produces AI models as a brain for robot inspections in the manufacturing industry. It has successfully developed many AI models that can be used for inspecting scratches in visual inspection, oil film, irregular color, distortion, imperfect molding, and classification of indications, etc. The purpose of the establishment is to promote automation and introduce AI into the manufacturing process.

The first five companies will receive a half-price discount. The company will confirm the accuracy and indicator of the required AI model and an estimation of economic rationality in automation. After confirming and examining the application, it will conduct a free PoC (proof of concept - a simple trial to show whether AI introduction is feasible in this case or suggest a new idea). It will deliver the AI model and the test results to the customer if the created AI model clears the accuracy target defined by the customer. As a method of introducing the AI model, it can be provided as Windows DLL or server API.

At Vitalify Asia’s “Mobile AI Lab”, Japanese-Vietnamese AI engineers who have are ranked in the top 1 per cent in Google’s AI competition, Kaggle, will collect and process the required data (machine learning) for AI introduction and conduct verification free of charge.

According to an announcement last March from Japan’s Cabinet Office, Japan’s manufacturing industry is shortage of 150,000 workers, which is expected to worsen to 380,000 by 2030, according to a report released by Japan’s Persol Research Institute and Chuo University last October. Small to medium-sized manufacturing enterprises are experiencing serious labor shortages, which leads to growing demand for “automation and labor saving by automatic machines and robots”, according to a report from Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry released last July.

For the manufacturing industry, using automated robots in the inspection process for contamination, detecting defective products, and product classification has strong demand but it is difficult to confirm the accuracy and cost-effectiveness of the AI model before supply.
