Artificial Intelligence in Material Processing


Andreas Michalowski, University of Stuttgart, Germany

Beat Neuenschwander, Berner Fachhochschule, Switzerland


Machine Learning is increasingly proving to be a very powerful approach for supporting a wide variety of technologies. In many cases, the appropriate adaptation of established machine learning methods to new fields of application already represents a major technological advance. In the field of laser material processing, there are numerous interesting approaches to using machine learning in a supportive manner. Applications are for example in control and feedback control systems, process monitoring and optimization. The topical review offers the opportunity to discuss current scientific results, allows to demonstrate successful applications and to identify further research needs.
