Montreal-based Element AI has entered into a strategic relationship with Japanese automotive company Aisin Seiki Co. Through the new partnership, Element AI will implement explainability features into Aisin Group’s manufacturing operations.

Element AI said explainability features help manufacturers overcome challenges in adopting AI.

In artificial intelligence (AI), explainability refers to how well the internal mechanics of a machine or deep learning system can be explained in human terms. The explainability features Element AI is delivering are aimed at facilitating factory acceptance and customer approval of the existing computer vision technology deployed in Aisin Group’s manufacturing operations.

“Visually tracking and watching for any possible anomaly requires a high level of computer vision accuracy,” said Katsuaki Takahashi, group manager of Aisin Seiki. “Incorporating explainable AI in our factories is an example of our commitment to assuring confidence in the quality and reliability of our processes and products.”
