Latest update about the offering is here: Meet byteLAKE. Artificial Intelligence for Chemical Industry, Paper Industry and Manufacturing. | Medium

This is byteLAKE, boom!

We offer AI products: AI-accelerated CFD for the chemical industry and AI-assisted process monitoring for the paper industry, and manufacturing. Besides, we offer custom AI software development services related to text, images, videos, sound, and time-series data analytics.

byteLAKE’s AI-powered products for the chemical industry, paper mills, and manufacturing.

Few years ago we started byteLAKE as a software services company specializing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High-Performance Computing (HPC). Through comprehensive research efforts and various projects we delivered across industries, we have been gradually becoming more of a product company though. And I thought it would be a good time to finally tell a few words about byteLAKE becoming a product-centric company.

byteLAKE’s AI Products

CFD Suite (AI-accelerated Computational Fluid Dynamics)

Collection of innovative AI models for CFD acceleration. Currently, the product is dedicated to the chemical industry with others being on the roadmap. It works as an add-on to existing CFD/CAE tools, accelerating simulations related to:

  • mixing process analysis
  • stirred tank analysis.
CFD Suite (case study)

CFD Suite is a scalable and cross-platform product. We support both, CPU-only and CPU+GPU architectures, desktop, server/single node, and HPC/cluster environments. It is a data-driven solution. It means that we require historic CFD simulations to train the underlying AI models. Once CFD Suite’s AI models are trained, the results of the CFD simulations can be predicted across various geometries and configurations of input parameters.

CFD Suite accelerates CFD simulations and in the case of chemical mixing, we have reduced time to results from hours to minutes!

We have recently been recognized as one of the 5 top startups & scaleups working on Computational Fluid Dynamics (link to the report).

CFD Suite leverages AI to accelerate chemical mixing CFD simulations (mixing process analysis, stirred tank analysis).

Cognitive Services (AI for Industry 4.0)

Collection of AI models for Industry 4.0. Now available for the paper industry with other industries being on the roadmap. The product helps monitor the paper-making process, detects and measures the so-called wet line (sometimes waterline).

byteLAKE’s Wet Line Detector

Cognitive Services have been designed as a complete, end-to-end solution, consisting of sensors (cameras, IoT sensors), edge computing (tiny PC collecting the data and performing the analytics) and various APIs for easy integration with manufacturing systems. We also collaborate with various partners incl. hardware resellers, integrators and software houses that can deliver customizations if these become necessary.

Cognitive Services leverage AI to automate visual inspection and Big Data analytics for Industry 4.0. Currently released models are dedicated to the paper industry and use cameras to automate wet line (waterline) detection and measurements.

We will be gradually adding more models to the collection, each dedicated to specific industry needs. Anyway, here’s our general roadmap:

AI-assisted Visual Inspection

  • Quality monitoring automation
    (visual inspection of products and processes, environment analytics, detecting dangerous situations, events and behaviors etc.)
  • Counting objects
    (objects recognition and quantification i.e. on conveyor belts, elements in objects etc.)
  • Objects recognition
    (camera’s input analysis and i.e. food type recognition, parts types in manufacturing etc.)
  • 3D data analytics
    (robotic arms movement automation with 3D cameras, routing/self-driving robots etc.)

AI-powered Big Data Analytics

  • Improve Client Experience
    (analyze past interactions/behaviors to enable personalized decisions)
  • Predict outcomes and trends
    (detect anomalies or suspicious behaviors, patterns and make recommendations)
  • Find optimal solutions
    (sensors data analytics to find dependencies, trends and optimal configurations)
  • Better Decisions
    (recommendations based on historic data analytics)
