Industrial Digital Technologies (IDTs) such as robotics, AI and IoT are transforming manufacturing worldwide with significant productivity, efficiency and environmental sustainability benefits. This digital revolution is often labelled Industry 4.0 and at its heart is the enhanced collection and use of data. The food and drink sector has been slow to adopt IDT’s for a variety of reasons including the availability of cost effective sensing technologies, capable of operating in production environments. This presentation will discuss the use of IDTs within the important task of food factory cleaning. It will cover the benefits and challenges of deploying robots, sensors and machine learning technologies for factory cleaning tasks in addition to the ever growing importance of effective factory cleaning during a global pandemic.

This event is brought to you by the AI3SD (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) and the IoFT (Internet of Food things) Networks. As food allergies and intolerances are on the rise, allergen detection and awareness is becoming more critical than ever at all stages of the food production pipeline; from cleaning the factories and kitchens the food is produced in, to detecting allergens in food, right through to creating allergen free food in the future. Unsurprisingly research has turned to technological solutions to combat this issue. This workshop is centered around the usage of Artificial Intelligence in Allergen Detection and Smart Cleaning within Food Production; research areas that co-align between both AI3SD & IoFT. The workshop will begin with some thought provoking talks to report on the current state of affairs, and consider where we need to be going in the future. There are five main working group topics identified for this workshop, and talks will be given on the different aspects that need to be considered with respect to allergen detection and smart cleaning before we break into the working groups for more formal discussions. There are multiple sessions for the working group discussions, and so there will be opportunities to take part in as many group discussions as you wish. The workshop will be formally recorded and the suggestions for going forward will be captured in a position paper. Lunch will be provided and the workshop will end with networking drinks.
