Enhancing OT protection with AI image recognition (officially implemented in 2021)

In 2020 we co-developed the OT image recognition system with partners. The field verification of the AI image recognition technology was performed at USI Kaohsiung Plant. Through real-time identification of the surveillance screens, we can effectively detect if workers wear related PPE properly to meet the in-house PPE use regulations.

The system will be implemented in 2021 to strengthen in-house industrial safety inspection, enhance contractor operation management, and reduce the risk of industrial accidents.

USI AI Team participated in the Standard Folding@home (FAH or F@h) Distributed Computing Project: Assisting COVID-19 Medication R&D

COVID-19 affected the whole world in 2020. To promote global vaccine development for the public to regain normal life as quickly as possible, the Pande Lab of Stanford University called worldwide computer users to initiate the Folding@Home Distributed Computing Project to help protein folding and computer-assisted drug design After acknowledging this project, USI’s AI team immediately supported the project and joined the Taiwan team with idle computing resources to help Taiwan and the world to combat the pandemic and assist in the R&D of COVID-19 drugs, hoping to end the pandemic as early as possible.

By March 8, 2021, the Taiwan team was ranked the world’s 14th, and our AI team was ranked the 1061st among Taiwan teams.

Predictive maintenance of pressured reactors to enhance industrial safety

The AI team continued the “Pressured Reactor Predictive Maintenance” project launched in 2019 and made deployment on other pressured reactors in the plant after AI model optimization and verification. Besides significantly reducing the occurrence of unscheduled machine stop, the project has also reduced the number of entries into the pressured anti-explosion walls of inspection engineers and repair engineers to lower the risk of industrial safety incidents. In 2020, we optimize the system with visualized tools for workers to quickly acknowledge the health condition of reactors to establish more accurate countermeasures.
