报告题目：USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FORPRECISION BORING（使用人工智能及传感器技术进行精密镗孔）
Cutting tool conditions significantly influence the quality and precision of the machined parts. With the ability to monitor the cutting tool condition, machining quality can be maintained and catastrophic failure can be eliminated. In this manner, production automation can be achieved. Therefore, tool condition monitoring (TCM) is extremely important to achieve high quality and automation of boring processes.
Neural network, which is a branch of Artificial Intelligence, has been widely used in condition monitoring. Counterpropagation Neural Networks (CPNs), which are based on competitive learning, have been utilized in TCM in this research for high quality and automated boring. The inputs of the CPNs were the indexes acquired from 3-axis cutting force measurements. The output was either the tool state or the value of tool wear. Seventy CPN network structures have been utilized for both real time recognition and real time measurements. The performance of the CPNs for TCM depends on the network structures.
The results of this research are exceedingly successful. Real time recognition of tool states showed excellent results, using a 2x30x1 CPN, of being able to predict tool states real time with 100% accuracy. Real time measurements can achieve a minimum error of 8.46% using a 3x69x1 CPN, which is sufficient for continuous assessment of the tool degradation. Control actions can be taken to stop the boring process in order to avoid catastrophic failure and to enhance quality and automation of the boring process.
报告题目：ON STREAM INSPECTION FOR PITTING CORROSION DEFECT OF PRESSURE VESSELS USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SENSOR TECHNOLOGY（使用人工智能及传感器技术实现压力容器的孔蚀缺陷的在线检测）
The objective of this research is to develop an intelligent on-line pitting corrosion defect detection system, which is on stream inspection (OSI). During the tests of two pressure vessels, acoustic emission (AE) was utilized for on-line detection in order to assess internal integrity of pressure vessels.
Feature acquisition was utilized to obtain essential features from the AE measurements. In order to obtain the optimal features effectively, Euclidean Distance Measure and Sequential Forward Search Algorithm (SFS）were utilized for feature choice. The chosen three features were AE time domain kurtosis, AE duration, and AE frequency domain average. Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference Systems (ANFIS), which is a branch of Artificial Intelligence, were utilized. The chosen three features were the inputs to a 3*(3*3*3) ANFIS. Whether there is pitting corrosion defect or not was the output of this system. This approach can most quickly and most reliably determine whether there is a pitting corrosion defect or not for pressure vessels. The developed intelligent on-line system has very high reliability and safety. This OSI system can reduce shut down inspection (SDI), increase efficiency, and reduce cost.
