8th Intelligent Maintenance Conference

3 - 4 September 2024

Lausanne, Switzerland

The Intelligent Maintenance Conference is an international event on new diagnostic and intelligent monitoring methods for industrial systems! Our objective is to be a place to share fruitful discussions on predictive maintenance between experts from the industry and the academic world. Renowned speakers from varied backgrounds, including railway, healthcare, energy, and chemical industries, academics, and others, will be present.

We are excited to announce that, for the first time, the 8th Intelligent Maintenance Conference will include a dedicated 1-day workshop on the latest advancements and practical applications of artificial intelligence in maintenance technology.

IMC Hands-on Workshop

Join us at the 8th Intelligent Maintenance Conference for the interactive IMC Hands-on Workshop (IMC HOW?). We are excited to announce that, for the first time, the 8th Intelligent Maintenance Conference will include a dedicated 1-day workshop on the latest advancements and practical applications of artificial intelligence in maintenance technology. The workshop will cover the following topics:

The Power of Graph Neural Networks: A Comprehensive Introduction and Industrial Applications

Given by Mengjie Zhao and Raffael Theiler

IMOS, EPFL

Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) offer a powerful way to analyze complex assets and systems. They have been applied to a wide range of industrial applications, from the analysis of individual components such as bearings or turbofan engines to condition monitoring of large-scale interconnected systems such as power plants, distributed heating networks or energy distribution networks. In this workshop, we start by exploring the theoretical basics of how Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) facilitate learning in data that is structured as entities and their relationships. Then we'll apply GNNs to industrial applications that benefit from this relational interpretation of the data and learn how GNNs enable model generalization to unseen environments. The workshop includes a comprehensive introduction to GNNs followed by a hands-on tutorial using an industrial dataset, giving you direct guidance in applying these techniques to solve practical problems.

Mastering Domain Adaptation in Deep Learning: A Practical Workshop

Given by Han Sun

IMOS, EPFL

In the dynamic field of Deep Learning (DL), the ability to adapt models to new, unseen domains is crucial for achieving robust and generalizable performance across a wide range of applications. Designed for practitioners and researchers with a basic understanding of deep learning, this hands-on workshop is designed to introduce participants to the concept and techniques of domain adaptation in DL, providing them with the practical skills and knowledge needed to navigate and implement these strategies effectively.

Understanding your Deep Learning Models with Explainable AI

Given by Dr. Florent Forest

IMOS, EPFL

This workshop offers a practical introduction to various eXplainable artificial intelligence (XAI) tools that can be leveraged, on the one hand, to explain the decisions of already trained deep neural networks, or on the other hand, to make their architecture inherently more interpretable, with the ultimate goal of increasing trust and acceptance of AI-based systems. During this workshop, you will have the occasion to open the black-box of several models in industry-relevant applications.

Prerequisites:

  • Beginner to intermediate experience in Python.
  • A basic understanding of deep learning, basic knowledge of data science, and time series analysis will be helpful for understanding the theoretical background.
  • A laptop with a stable internet connection and a Gmail account to be able to follow along during the hands-on sessions in Google Colab.
