16 SMT007 MAGAZINE I JULY 2023 DarwinAI is developing machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions to improve AOI inspection results. eir work is unique because it's generally independent of the hard- ware used in the EMS line. It represents, as much as possible in our industry, a pure-play solution using machine learning and AI con- structs. Earlier this year, the I-Connect007 staff spoke with DarwinAI CEO Sheldon Fernandez about artificial intelligence and electronics manufac- turing. In this follow-up, Sheldon discussed what AI and machine learning are, what they A Vision for Machine Learning in Optical Inspection aren't, and how this work fits into the manu- facturing environment of today. Nolan Johnson: Where does artificial intel- ligence fit in an industrial environment like electronics manufacturing? We've focused on visual inspection. e step- change capabilities of artificial intelligence to do such inspection is becoming a significant presence in the industry. We focus on the final third of the workflow—back-end post-SMT assembly—which represents a fairly under- served aspect of the PCBA process. It's also Feature Interview by the I-Connect007 Editorial Team
