South Korea’s KT Corp. on Wednesday has taken its AI power to various industrial fields for automated supplement or replacement in engineering.

Network AI is capable of finding flaws in wired and wireless network even before customers make reports on them. The machine that has learned tens of thousands of phrases and sentences of system alerts predicts and restores failures by comparing the current status with normal condition.

“Network AI is aimed at performing every network-related task via AI technology,” the company said, adding it is targeting corporate network market at home and abroad with the new business-to-business (B2B) platform that integrates network AI solution with software definition network (SDN).

Giga Twin provides forecast data by establishing a simulation model close to the real environment. For instance, the solution can offer real-time traffic information by creating space models of highways and roads nationwide. The company said the system will ease traffic congestion by 20 percent by optimizing traffic signals based on the data.

Robo-Operator is an AI engine specializing in facility control. KT is testing the solution at six buildings including its Gwanghwamun building, LS Tower and Save Zone in Daejun that have saved up to 18 percent energy.

Machine Doctor pinpoints what parts of a machine need to be fixed by analyzing data of vibration and current flow.

KT expects the solutions will be actively used in B2B market in various industries including telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation and logistics. IT service provider and consultant Atos Consulting predicted that companies around the world would invest 52 billion euros ($61.1 billion) in AI and intelligent automation next year.

“The four AI engines are technologies that will provide practical help to companies seeking digital innovation,” Hong Gyung-pyo, the head of KT’s Institute for Convergence Technology said. “We will aid companies to create new values.”
