MYWAI is now part of the umati community

What expect­a­tions do you have of UMATI , what do you expect from the partnership?

​“Sud­denly, dur­ing the Cov­id pan­dem­ics, the world real­ized that in the age of Inter­net of (every) Things  it makes no sense to send main­tain­ers every time your equip­ment breaks down, to ship spare parts once your machinery is hal­ted or to ask cus­tom­ers to con­tin­ue to pay sys­tems when they are low in pro­duc­tion” claims Fab­riz­io Car­din­ali, MYWAI founder and Co-CEO “Rather it makes much more sense to con­nect your machinery,  being it either an industry 4 machine tool, a med­ic­al equip­ment or an energy appli­ance, dir­ectly to the Inter­net of Everything, mak­ing it secure and smart ‘by design’ able to deploy AI algos the very edge, on deck, using chip based Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence and block­chain cer­ti­fied data streams”. “With such vis­ion”, con­tin­ues Car­din­ali, “we have designed and pat­en­ted the MYWAI plat­form over the last 2 years,  the worst peri­od for Indus­tri­al Pro­duc­tion and Sup­ply Chains over the last 100 years,  to help OEM and machine tools vendors and users across the world make their machine smarter and embrace the ser­vit­iz­a­tion trend which is here to stay for the next 10 years and bey­ond. UMATI is help­ing us to do this once for all machinery of same type without hav­ing to rein­vent integ­ra­tion of AI empowered ser­vices each time”

What advant­ages does UMATI  offer your com­pany and your customers?

“We decided to enter UMATI because we think that col­lect­ing and expos­ing machinery data for 3rd party ser­vices is the new oil. As Social Net­works col­lec­ted people data over the last couple of dec­ades to con­ceive new recur­ring per­son­al­iz­a­tion ser­vices such as those offered by Net­flix, META, Google and the oth­er FANGs, the next dec­ade   may use the same semant­ic web tech­no­lo­gies to col­lect  machinery data and offer smart ser­vices in turn, extend­ing OT (Oper­a­tion­al Tech­no­lo­gies) far bey­ond the still very lim­ited  arena of PLC and SCADA sys­tems func­tion­al­ity” declares Fab­riz­io Car­din­ali “UMATI’s  lay­er of OPC UA Com­pan­ion specs enables Equip­ment as a Ser­vice plat­forms such as MYWAI  to har­vest and expose   machinery data to 3rd party ser­vice pro­viders such as Fintech and Insur­tech ser­vice pro­viders will­ing to trans­form the OEM sales, ser­vi­cing and war­ranty mod­els. As a res­ult we are devel­op­ing an integ­ra­tion lay­er called MAGIC™ (MYWAI Archi­tec­tur­al Gate­way for machine Inform­a­tion Mod­el­ling and Com­mu­nic­a­tion”) based on UMATI com­pan­ion specs to har­vest open data from Machinery and add edge intel­li­gence and 3rd party ser­vices back to machines via  the MYWAI plat­form

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

At MYWAI we see a future of dis­trib­uted smart machines equipped by swarm intel­li­gence empower­ing a new gen­er­a­tion out­come eco­nomy for man­u­fac­tured goods pro­duced for answer­ing a mar­ket demand pull rather than man­u­fac­tur­ers mar­ket­ing push” explains Fab­riz­io Car­din­ali “When this will hap­pen, finally my wash­ing machine will under­stand that  keep­ing its per­form­ance up and run­ning whilst offer­ing intel­li­gent main­ten­ance, energy optim­iz­a­tion and final dis­pos­al ser­vices,  will pay­back much more than the cur­rent pro­grammed obsol­es­cence strategy which seems affect­ing con­sumer goods nowadays”. Smart Machine Tools must offer me new and attract­ive fintech, insur­tech, ser­vicetech ser­vices .Inter­op­er­ab­il­ity stand­ards are needed to cre­ate such drift towards ser­vit­iz­a­tion also in the Industry 4 machinery mar­kets whilst mov­ing machine data from the OT Edge to Fog to the Cloud IT eco­sys­tem… UMATI is the lin­gua franca for achiev­ing such data migra­tion in practice!”

About MYWAI

Foun­ded in March 2021 and grow­ing imme­di­ately to  nearly 30 employ­ees and 3 ML Euro turnover in first year, , MYWAI™ SRL  (www.myw.ai)  is one of Europe’s fast­est grow­ing EAIOps (EDGE INTELLIGENCE Oper­a­tions) Solu­tions   help­ing OEM and machine tool vendors and users deploy  explain­able and trust­worthy AI algos at the very edge of their indus­tri­al, bio­med­ic­al and smart cit­ies equip­ment and appli­ances. Headquartered in the won­der­ful Silence Bay of Ses­tri Levante, North West Itali­an Rivi­era between Cin­queterrre and Por­tofino, the start­ing point for MYWAI’s rap­id suc­cess has been a very innov­at­ive pat­ent awar­ded by the UIBM pat­ent office for embed­ding IIoT, chip based arti­fi­cial neur­al net­works and new gen­er­a­tion block­chain topo­lo­gies (the IOTA™ Tangle) for man­aging Edge AI algorithms build, dis­tri­bu­tion and cer­ti­fic­a­tion mak­ing machines smart at the very edge of Indus­tri­al work­flows, Hos­pit­al setups and Cit­ies infra­struc­tures. To date the MYWAI EAIOps plat­form has been used to make Robots, Ultra­sound, Video inspec­tion and Reefer machinery smarter turn­ing such  man­u­fac­tured goods into EaaS (Equip­ment as a Ser­vice) ser­vice mod­els and businesses.
