Leela AI Releases First Commonsense Visual AI Platform for Manufacturing

Leela Viewer offers a dynamic interface for tracking and visualizing manufacturing operations.

Newton, MA, February 21, 2023 – Leela AI announces the commercial release of Leela Platform, the first “commonsense” visual AI solution designed to improve manufacturing productivity. Leela Platform is a visual sensor analytics platform that offers manufacturers insights into production processes that are hidden from IIoT sensor analytics.

Leela Platform acts like an always-on time-and-motion study, identifying and tracking frontline activities as people interact with tools, machines, parts, and products. The software provides insights that enable customers to identify bottlenecks and best practices and compare productivity between shifts, workstations, and locations. Our customers are leveraging Leela Platform’s insights to improve capacity, speed production, and reduce waste.

Leela AI will present a webinar – Visual Intelligence for Industry 4.0 – to demonstrate Leela Platform on Thursday, March 2, 2023 at 12 p.m.

“In face of ongoing labor and supply shortages, manufacturers are seeking innovative tools to help them work smarter and increase productivity,” stated Cyrus Shaoul, CEO, Leela AI, Inc. “Leela Platform improves visibility into the hidden, unstructured data hiding in plain sight: the operations of the front line.”

Leela Platform excels at analyzing the actions of human operators working in complex, frequently changing manufacturing environments. The software can also generate ROI in many other industrial and logistics applications.

Leela Platform generates an intuitive, visual dashboard that reveals metrics such as cycle time, throughput, and value vs. non-value add time. By sharing Leela Platform’s Leela Viewer dashboard throughout the organization, companies can draw on insights from the front office to the front line. 

Facial blurring is turned on by default to protect privacy, and in this latest release, full-body blurring and an option to disable video review and storage have been added. Other recent features include the ability for customers to customize Leela Viewer labels. This is a steppingstone toward Leela Creator, a no-code development environment that will enable much greater user customization.

Leela Platform is unique among smart manufacturing platforms due to its novel AI engine, developed at MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab. By adding a symbolic/causal agent that supervises and assists a more traditional neural networks platform, the AI can comprehend cause and effect to analyze processes in context and enable deeper insights into complex, interrelated manufacturing processes. The hybrid architecture enables much faster AI training time with 100x less data and 10x faster time-to-value than competitive solutions.

Leela Platform has been commercially deployed at several major manufacturers and Leela AI invites interested companies to request a no-cost evaluation. The release follows Leela AI’s recent announcement of its certified compliance with the SOC 2 Type II standard. The compliance ensures that customer data being processed by Leela AI servers is protected with the highest levels of security.
