Simple. Automated. Explainable.

aivis works close to real-world problems, thus minimizing the struggle to translate your question back and forth into something that mathematical approaches can solve.

Up to the task

Conventional methods have limitations that prevent industrial success. Not so with aivis.

Industrial data-driven challenges are demanding and complex. Thousands of parameters, highly dynamic environments, and the highest standards demand the maximum performance, flexibility, and usability from an AI-based solution. Most conventional methods are just not up to the task: They are either too slow, too expensive, too complicated to use, or just don’t deliver the required quality and therefore limit the industrial success.

aivis is different: Developed for demanding industrial requirements, it delivers the best results very fast, can cope with almost any complexity, and offers transparency. It helps industrial applications to get the most out of their processes.

aivis helped me to truly understand the root causes of production interruptions such as sheet breaks. Instead of just curing the symptoms, which is current practice in the paper industry, we are now able to eliminate the root causes. After almost 20 years in the industry, I believe that this is a real step forward, helping me to support our customers in boosting production output.

Game-changing AI

aivis is an industry-oriented AutoML technology that is entirely proprietary. It builds on the completely new mathematical theory of ‘Geometrical Kernel Machines’: Kernel machines extended by methods from Stochastic Differential Geometry and Quantum Field Theory.

The first step aivis always performs on the data is a data segmentation: Stochastic Differential Geometry is used to find a representation of the data that reveals all dependencies and relationships. Based on that, a proprietary universal cluster algorithm clusters similar geometries. The result is a segmentation of the data where each segment pools similar relationships and importances of the features.

Next, for each segment the metric is determined that best describes its dependencies. In a way, this can be interpreted as calculating the hyperparameters, which eliminates the need for choosing and tuning hyperparameters.

Also, aivis builds and trains a model for each segment. This is accomplished by using methods from Quantum Field Theory: The labels are interpreted as vacuum states of a scalar quantum field whereas the hyperparameters are interpreted as vacuum expectation values of background fields (e.g. Higgs field). Finally, the models are combined to a strong ensemble predictor.

In summary, the preceding segmentation brings two vital benefits: First of all, it is relatively easy to train a model on the segmented data since aivis initially revealed all significant importances and relationships. Second, the results are transparent and interpretable since it is clear which segment contributes to the current prediction to which amount.

aivis is supported by strong and passionate partners who bring aivis into various industrial applications and enable good and data-driven decisions.

Benefits

aivis opens up a whole new access to your data. Being close to industrial applications, it enables you to get the most out of your data fast and efficient. No excessive data preparation and no data science expertise needed. 

Minimal data preparation

The only data preparation necessary is the data conversion into the aivis CSV format. Everything else, aivis does for you: aivis works on any amount of unprocessed, uncleaned, and unsynchronized raw data. Also, no prior exclusion of supposedly irrelevant signals and data or any insertion of pre-knowledge is required.

Actionable and explainable results

aivis always presents fully transparent results by providing a report that shows which signals or parameters contribute to which extent. Therefore, aivis’ results are easily understandable and interpretable to the data owner and domain experts.

Focus on the right questions

Once you have converted your data, you are ready to go. An educated guess is already enough to start the first calculation. Fast and easy to use, aivis allows you to explore your data’s information and the possibilities that come with it in an almost playful manner. This way, you can fully concentrate on asking the right questions without being distracted by how to answer them.

Simple to use

Working with aivis requires no data science expertise. In particular, you will not have to choose between available mathematical approaches regarding the training or model building. Instead, all you need is a general understanding of your processes and your data. An intuitive and straightforward UI helps you through every step from data upload to starting aivis calculations.

Quickly first results

With aivis Insights, you achieve first valuable results in the quickest possible way. With very little initial effort, you can let aivis create an Insights report giving you a purely data-driven answer to your question. In many cases, this already deepens the understanding of your processes significantly and enables spontaneous efficiency improvements.

Features

aivis combines the best of different worlds being fast, flexible, stable, and transparent at the same time.

Powerful

aivis can easily cope with thousands of parameters. This makes it especially useful in very complex environments where human comprehension quickly reaches its limits.

High speed

Before starting with resource-intensive operations, aivis first rotates the data in the right direction by data segmentation. This makes all following operations much easier and faster.

No overfitting

A data segmentation based on stochastic differential geometry creates data segments with similar properties and known relevant influences. This allows aivis only to learn relevant behavior and natively prevents overfitting.

No hyperparameter tuning

The theory behind aivis allows a geometrical interpretation of hyperparameters enabling their direct determination. Therefore, aivis eliminates the need for choosing and tuning hyperparameters.

Unsupervised model building

aivis builds trained models without any manual intervention. In particular, it requires no selection of mathematical approaches or filtering of irrelevant data.

Transparency

The preceding data segmentation reveals the contribution of each signal or parameter, allowing excellent transparency and explainability of each result.

High-quality models

The initial clustering of the data into segments with similar behavior greatly simplifies the model building, enabling excellent quality.

Durable models

Since aivis models natively include the system’s different types of behavior into the training, they are accurate over a long time without any adaptions.

Pragmatic

aivis works close to real-world problems, thus minimizing the struggle to translate your question back and forth into something that mathematical approaches can solve.

Data-efficient

The preceding data segmentation allows for independent model building for each segment. This is a very data-efficient approach that only requires little data to develop and train a complete model.

Comparison

Due to it’s unique nature and mathematical approach, aivis  provides great features and benefits when compared to other AutoML solutions and providers.

Faster

For a medium sized problem, aivis trains a model within a few minutes, where other approaches require at least a few hours and more. Even for complex approaches, aivis rarely needs more than one hour.

Less data required

Neural networks in particular need very much training data in order to achieve an acceptable result. For aivis, a small amount of data is already sufficient.

Durable and reliable

Conventional models tend to lose their accuracy on slight changes in the system’s behavior, requiring constant adaptions. aivis models have already learned the underlying behavioral changes resulting in better accuracy over a much longer time.

Easier to use

aivis requires no data science expertise. All steps usually required in the machine learning process (feature engineering, algorithm selection and hyperparameter tuning, etc.) are taken care of.

More transparency

Only to know what is happening is not enough. Understanding why it is happening is of equal importance. This fundamental realization forms the basis for every interaction with aivis making each result transparent and explainable.

Closer to real-world problems

A large part of data analytics is usually the translation of the problem into something that can be solved by a theoretical Machine Learning approach – and the retranslation. This effort can be avoided entirely when using aivis.

Higher complexity

Conventional approaches can handle up to a few hundred parameters and require a large effort to do so. aivis can easily handle thousands of parameters without any additional effort.

No overfitting

Many approaches, especially neural networks, tend to overfit since they struggle to distinguish between noise and data. aivis uses data segmentation to avoid this problem from the very beginning.

Greater data tolerance

aivis can cope with many of the commonly known data collection problems. In particular, it accepts data voids and non-equidistant timestamps on time-series data without problems.

Larger datasets

Due to its data efficiency and high speed, aivis is particularly well suited for huge datasets as they can be expected in industrial environments.
