Today's production with customized and specialized machine tools is often unable to achieve this requirement. As a result, autonomous systems that provide more flexible automation and more production freedom, while still maintaining high productivity and robustness regardless of lot size, are needed. Autonomous machine tools have the ability control the production themselves. In addition, the machine tools are able to adapt to unforeseen changes during the process. The basis for this are intelligent components with sensory and actuator capabilities. Intelligent Components for Autonomous Machine Tools

Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have been successfully applied in various social and consumer applications, such as voice and image recognitions, social media, advertisement, etc. However, AI techniques have seen limited adoption in industry, primarily due to the difficulty in obtaining adequate sets of training data that are required by various machine learning or neural networks. This presentation will discuss the challenges of adopting AI techniques to industrial applications, and propose a concept of industrial AI (augmented intelligence). Furthermore, experienced operators or engineers accumulated significant knowledge or experience over their professional career. The value behind historical maintenance records should also not be overlooked. Additionally, when sensory data and algorithms are combined with the engineering models, human experience or expert knowledge, and historical records, a new paradigm of industrial AI (iAI) becomes a powerful solution to many industrial problems. Selected applications will be presented to demonstrate the value of this new iAI.Industrial AI and Its Applications

Improving the basic properties of machines, especially the accuracy and quality of machined surfaces, machining performance and entire manufacturing processes, or the reliability of machines and processes are among the main objectives of development and application of advanced computing and simulations. One of the main challenges of current manufacture is the high degree of product individualisation. In particular, advanced simulation and compensation models help reduce the risk of poor final quality and enable better utilization of the machine's production potential. An appeal to scientific community to disseminate of smart strategies in real industrial environment is actual.Smart Machine Tools

Advanced optics must to be fabricated with nanoprecision on surface and profile. In order to achieve this, nanoprecision machine tools and machining processes must be applied to optical fabrication. In recent years, nanoprecision machine tools which are driven at single nanometric resolution have been developed and moreover, higher resolution toward picoprecision is now being started to be studied. The ion-shot processing can be used both for dressing on nanosurface grinding, and also for surface modification on cutting tools and workpieces enabling direct nanosurface cutting of ferrous materials using diamond tools.Optical Fabrication Technologies with Nanoprecision Machine Tools

In spite of the rapid development of the machine tool industry toward Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory, CNC controllers’ support has always been lag behind the customer’s up-to-date requirements and needs. Considering that all CNCs have a similar goal to accomplish accurate and optimal control of axes and spindle to produce qualified products with the given tool, workpiece, and cutting condition, there should be very little differences in its intrinsic fundamentals. Based on these beliefs and industrial needs, we prepared the intelligent and unified HMI platform to innovate the legacy old-fashioned CNC application development processes and to relieve the struggles of many researchers and application developers in the machine tool industry. We hope that this presentation could be a stage to share the latest application scheme of platform technology in the machine tool industry and to discuss better ways together.Smart Machine Tool Development based on Intelligent HMI Platform

During the last years, there has been an increased interest in the use of 3D Printing technologies in many industrial applications and it have been identified as one of the most promising production technologies. Why the 3D Printing is smart? First of all, because at the very beginning the 3D Printing technologies were identified as a segment with high growth potential as well as high performance manufacturing and correspond to high levels of technology maturity. Second one, if we stop printing, different internal components can be perfectly incorporated. Also, can be added sensors, mechanical components such as screws, nuts and even can be reinforced the plastic or biodegradable materials used with different reinforcements even metal reinforcements. The main objective is to identify benchmarks from different industrial branches, based on the criterion of the existing functionality and the companies need.Smart 3D Printing

Smart nanocomposites are promising new materials applicable as media for nano-patterned surfaces. Much attention is being paid to carbon-based nanoparticles as fillers in polymer matrices, due to their outstanding mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. In particular, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphenes are effective in the fabrication of electrically and thermally conductive polymer composites compared to metallic particles or carbon black, mainly due to their high aspect ratios (i.e. ~100-1000). The sensors consisted of polymer reinforced with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)/graphenes using a variety of manufacturing techniques.

Many machines and devices have become automated, smaller, and smarter. In order to realize this, the first step is to establish the technology for smart monitoring and control of the manufacturing processes and equipment. Similar to humans making decisions from the sound on the status of manufacturing processes or conditions of machine, a simple sound-based IoT device can be used to monitor help make smart decision. Also, as collaborative robotics and remote operation become more common on factory floors, a new operation platform is needed for easy human involvement and translation of human expertise. Also presented in this talk is a decision making framework for digital twin-based human-robot interaction and smart robot operation similar to how human body operated by the brain. The framework also enables better human involvement, training, and remote operation.Human Expertise Inspired Smart Sensing and Manufacturing

The middle-ear ossicular chain converts sound wave in the ear canal into fluid vibrations in the cochlea, accomplishing impedance matching between air and cochlear fluid. Various congenital and non-congenital diseases or accidental trauma may cause interruption and/or breakage of the middle sound transmission routes. Repair of the damaged middle ear structures is generally done by surgical reconstructions of the middle ear, which rearrange or replace the impaired middle ear structures with implantable prostheses. In such surgical reconstruction, appropriate selection of the prosthesis and related surgical techniques is a key factor to determine the surgical outcomes. The established methods have been applied to evaluate functional performance of new surgical techniques and prostheses, with identification of parameters affecting middle-ear sound transmission in the reconstructed ears. The results from experiments with cadaveric samples and intra-operative measurements with live human subjects showed good agreement with the related clinical data, providing guidelines for the middle-ear surgeries with various pathological conditions.
