(PresseBox) - MUSKETEER, a H2020 funded project, offering an industrial data platform leveraging federated learning and other privacy preserving technologies, has released initial open source libraries enabling stakeholders to share and train AI models without compromising the confidentiality of their data.

The presence of a huge number of machines in industrial automation factories and the elevated cost of downtime, produce large expenses for production line maintenance. Getting a more accurate evaluation of robot performance helps to avoid damaging the production capacity contingently (by 5 to 20% in certain cases)[1]. But collecting data from different factories to build powerful AI tools can raise privacy issues. Data used to train AI models can be sensitive company data but also lead to personal data concerns (e.g. data can include information about operators working at the plant). The MUSKETEER platform offers a solution to tackle these issues mixing privacy preserving technologies (federated machine learning, etc.) while respecting sovereignty of the stakeholders as defined by IDSA standard[2].

The first project release concerns the MUSKETEER client package. It describes how to interact with the IBM MUSKETEER cloud platform for federated machine learning. Developers learn how to design and run federated machine learning algorithms on the platform:

This package, which is tested in a manufacturing use case, is helping to solve complex challenges for the automotive sector:

Improving the welding quality assessment to develop predictive maintenance for robots while increasing product safety at the same time

Training a welding quality assessment algorithm on large datasets from multiple factories
