Transforms raw data from the factory floor into real-time insight
The long awaited Part 2 of 3 of this series has arrived. It has taken me a significant amount of time longer to put together than I had anticipated. Now the wait is over, here it is…
IoT is growing at a tremendous rate, and it seems that every device is connected these days, but which are the startups to look out for?
Sight Machine Inc., the industry leader for manufacturing analytics, today introduced a major upgrade of the only end-to-end big data platform purpose-built for manufacturing.
A company called Sight Machine has developed machine-learning analytics to solve a variety of problems in complex assembly lines. The software can spot hidden problems in existing processes and optimize quality in products.
Sight Machine Inc., the industry leader for manufacturing analytics, today announced it has named Syed Hoda as its chief marketing officer. Hoda has more than two decades of experience in bringing advanced technologies to market for both startups and industry giants.
Sight Machine Inc., leading the digital transformation of manufacturing, today announced it has raised $13.5 million in Series B venture capital. The round is led by Chicago-based Jump Capital and includes GE Ventures, Two Roads Group and Pritzker Group Venture Capital.
General Electric‘s (GE) startup-collaboration division, GE Ventures, is among those that have invested $13.5 million in manufacturing analytics company Sight Machine, part of the industrial conglomerate’s efforts to extract more data from machines on the factory floor.
Sight Machine Inc. today announced that Tier One automotive supplier Martinrea International Inc.’s division in Manchester, Mich., has selected Sight Machine to transform the way it uses manufacturing data from the factory floor.
Sight Machine Inc., whose cloud-based manufacturing intelligence solution helps manufacturers tackle critical quality and operations challenges, today announced it has opened an office in Troy, Michigan, giving it a strong presence in the heart of the Detroit automotive manufacturing community. Sight Machine also announced it has hired two senior technology executives with deep experience in cloud-based software for manufacturing.
Sight Machine uses computer vision and other software techniques to help factories and other physical environments improve their operations.
In the words of one engineer we know, manufacturing is “DRIP”—data rich, information poor. Manufacturers generate data across massive, distributed operations, but the data lives in silos. Until we can make use of the data we already have, collecting ever more data just buries us deeper.
[Sight Machine is named as "one to watch" by data scientist Pete Skomoroch]
After [Sight Machine's] system identifies whether units moving across the assembly pass or fail inspection, it stores and the images in the cloud and generates data based on the units’ dimensions, time stamps and other points. Users can then access that data from their desktops, analyzing everything from time-series data on the whole line to how many standard deviations an individual unit’s dimensions were from the ideal. It doesn’t matter what algorithms are programmed into the camera’s processor — or even if the camera has an embedded processor — because all the work is done elsewhere.
