We’re fascinated by the possibilities of Artificial Intelligence and the truly transformative opportunities it offers our customers. We’ve been digging deep into machine learning, computer vision and other AI capabilities for quite some time now, and believe they will grow into a significant part of our business. We’re not alone: IDC predicts 75 percent of developer […]

What is MTConnect? MTConnect is the communication standard of choice for manufacturing. It allows organized retrieval of data from shop floor equipment in a structured XML. The adjacent diagram depicts the key components of MTConnect. Let us start with the shop floor equipment shown at the bottom of the diagram – a CNC lathe.  Above […]

At a recent holiday dinner, a conversation with a friend eventually progressed to the topics of self-driving cars and facial-recognition software – and the overall roles and capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI).

AIS developed a prototype web application that leverages open standards for real-time data sharing and geospatial processing. It’s highly suggested you read our first two blog posts on this application, part one and part two. In this post, we are going to discuss three areas of improvement for the application. We wanted to improve collaboration, […]

AIS developed a prototype that highlights the features and capabilities of open standards for geospatial processing and real-time data sharing through web applications. If you haven’t already, please click here to read part one.  After getting the VIIRS data into our application using GeoServer, our next objective was to enhance the prototype to demonstrate some […]

Although AIS is proud to center their technology on Microsoft’s frameworks and technology stack, AIS is also adept at working with a broad range of other technologies to give clients solutions that are custom-tailored to their needs. One such project is the recently released Web Report Editing Tool, or WebRET. WebRET was custom-built in the […]

Because of our broad knowledge in building web applications, AIS decided to develop a prototype that highlights the features and capabilities of open standards for geospatial processing and data sharing through web applications. We chose the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) as our data source for the demonstration. VIIRS collects visible and infrared imagery […]
