The ChatGPT language model is gaining popularity every day due to its potential in various fields of application. In the industrial context 4.0, it promises to revolutionize processes to support a further step forward in improving the efficiency and productivity of companies.
ChatGPT and artificial intelligence in industrial automation
Latest OpenAI project, ChatGPT is a highly versatile and effective solution for automatic text generation, language understanding, code generation and human-machine interface creation. The field is generative artificial intelligence, i.e. a machine learning system capable of classifying or recognizing existing data and generating content, such as text, images or sounds.
Industry 4.0 is not new to the use of artificial intelligence algorithms. In recent years, these technologies have contributed to the digitization process of real-time connection of production systems. Similarly, the ChatGPT model in industry can contribute to this direction, particularly in the advancement of collaboration (and communication) between humans and machines.
With over 100 million users and 13 million individual active users every day, the most striking in the industrial sector is its ability to understand and process data.
Potential applications of ChatGPT in industry
The potential uses of ChatGPT in industry are many. Here are the main areas of application:
Monitoring and prevention
It can be used to analyze historical data collected by sensors on machinery, to identify any anomalies and generate alarms. This would also allow him to implement and suggest predictive maintenance actions even before a problem occurs, thus contributing to the safety of the production plant.
Data simplification and accessibility
In the industrial context, ChatGPT can be used to automatically generate technical documentation on production, maintenance, or safety processes. In fact, it can “translate” the tabulated data obtained from automated dashboards into an easily understandable text format. The data could then be incorporated into the firm’s annual reports to gain a broader understanding of plant productivity.
Assistance and training
Simplifying the interaction between operators and systems is fundamental in Industry 4.0. As? Through natural dialogue interfaces for the management and control of the machines. For example, a chatbot that answers questions about how it works, troubleshoots, etc. In that sense, ChatGPT would play a very useful role in providing real-time guidance and training to field personnel.
