Furniture detection and price estimation using machine learning  – Samy DOLORIS

In the era of digitization, machine learning can greatly help to enhance insurances products and services. One of the main business values that machine learning can bring is user-experience.
Our use-case focuses on helping rental insurance customers to encode their furniture using machine learning and computer vision.
This solution detects furniture, using the deep learning model YOLOv3, and matches it to a price table, allowing to estimate the price of the insuree’s goods.
Doing so can make the insurance product more customizable and adapted to the needs of the customer.

Tremplin vers l’Industrie 4.0 : le Machine Learning au service de la qualité dans la métallurgie – Fabien FRANCIS

L’IoT industriel (IIoT) combiné au Machine Learning et au Cloud computing offrent de nouvelles perspectives aux industries wallonnes : faire de la maintenance prédictive permettant d’identifier les éventuelles pannes avant qu’elles n’affectent la production, contrôler et détecter en temps réel d’éventuelles anomalies pour optimiser la performance, ou faire des prédictions de la qualité de produits. Pour illustrer ces innovations, nous aborderons l’exemple de d’un bureau d’études spécialisé dans les fours de traitement thermique pour produits métalliques et leader dans son secteur.
