How AI Can Help Build its Own Products
We talk about artificial intelligence quite a lot these days, and with good reason. As was written in a piece here last October, artificial intelligence is now the norm. As much as we focus on the wonders of AI though, one interesting aspect of it is often ignored: the idea that it can be, in some ways, self-perpetuating. Here we’re not necessarily talking about robots building other robots (though this is certainly possible and will undoubtedly be done in the near future). Rather, we’re looking to the most basic components of modern devices and electronics, and exploring how AI products can expand and improve the mass production of circuit boards — which in many cases can then be used to run “smart” devices of all kinds.
Sharing Circuit Board Designs
One exciting way in which we see AI impacting the broader manufacturing world is that it can streamline (and really, abbreviate) the process between the completion of a digital rendering and the beginning of production. In the past, even where highly automated machinery was being used in production, designs would typically have to be uploaded, and production put into action, in a fairly direct manner. Now, however, thanks to cloud network and improved AI in production, designs can be spread and acted upon more widely and more quickly.
Regarding the mass production of circuit boards, this process occurs via modern software. Specifically, the use of a Gerber software viewer can help to communicate the artwork behind a printed circuit board design to fabrication vendors far and wide, and essentially begin the production process. In other words, in theory, a PCB designer can complete a design and, through this software, launch wide-ranging fabrication of that design with the push of a button; communication and instigation from that point are taken care of automatically.
