    Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a ma-chine

    At Booth A30 in Hall 6 at the 2019 Hanover Trade Fair the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD will be presenting Data@Hand, a basic automated data analysis technology for a variety of application scenarios. Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a machine, a component or a production installation - and can also be used in medicine. It optimizes processes on the basis of artificial intelligence using principles of machine learning.
