Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. AI inside Inc.
Dai Nippon Printing Co. (DNP), Ltd. and AI inside Inc. are pleased to announce that we have reached another phase on strengthening our partnership and start Support Services for Utilizing AI on April 21, 2021 (JST), using the Learning Center＊1 developed by AI inside. The Learning Center enables everyone to easily build AI (artificial intelligence) models without code or specialized knowledge. We support other companies and municipalities to implement AI solutions and work together to make a new society where everyone can use AI to improve business efficiency with added value.
Support Services for Utilizing AI
AI inside provides the no-code AI builder, Learning Center, and investigates and organizes business scenarios of companies and municipalities, and provides technical support for highly accurate AI development.
In our solution, DNP will offer the Learning Center by AI inside and provide consultation for companies and municipalities that wish to solve issues by implementing AI. While DNP discovers corporate issues and ideas for AI utilization, DNP can also offer a solution such as "Annotation BPO*2" which includes outsourcing of the assignment of data with relevant information to build a highly accurate AI model, business process (BPR), and peripheral services including data collection and storage.
With this service, users can easily build and verify AI models so that we can speedily solve problems and provide added value through AI. Furthermore, Using the knowledge and customer needs obtained by this service, DNP plans to offer new services and packaged solutions with the AI for more general purposes.
Application example at DNP: Visual inspection of holograms for IC smart cards
DNP and AI inside held a workshop to build AI models with the Learning Center. One of the AI models is for inspecting the appearance of holograms on IC smart cards manufactured by DNP before its shipment. While it normally takes several months to build one model, the DNP staff at the manufacturing site with no specific knowledge on building AI models successfully built this AI model including the process of planning, organizing the data set for training, building the AI model, and verifying the accuracy for a month. Despite the small amount of image data used for this model (about 100 images), we achieved approximately 90% accuracy. The staff will add more image data in the future to further improve the accuracy.
“DNP has made use of P&I (Printing and Information) and provided value to a variety of customer contacts. Now, we are aiming to maximize the CX of companies and consumers beyond. DX is an essential part of CX. AI is a particularly important technology in this DX,” said Yoshiki Numano, Senior Corporate Officer at DNP. “Announcement of the Learning Center makes the world reach the future where everyone can utilize AI more easily. DNP continues to deliver new value to customers through this service.”
“At AI inside, we are aiming for a world where anyone can build AI, and share the AI within society through providing the AI platform. Our Learning Center is for everyone to build AI models easily without code, and this will make that world a reality,” said Taku Toguchi, Representative Director, President and CEO of AI inside. “With the strong partnership with DNP, we will continue to promote implementing AI into society and contribute to solving problems and improving business efficiency by providing services using the Learning Center together."
