Neural Networks for fast sensor data processing in Laser Welding

  title={Neural Networks for fast sensor data processing in Laser Welding},
  author={J. G{\"u}nther and Hao Shen and Klaus Diepold},
To address the need for robust and fast representation, we introduce deep learning neural networks and parallel programming techniques for laser welding. In order to deal with high-dimensional data within real-time constraints, we use a deep autoencoder to extract robust, meaningful and low dimensional features. The implementation is then optimized, using parallel programming techniques and shown to perform within the real-time requirements for laser welding. The performance, in terms of… Expand
