Dr Dieter Veit presents “Artificial Intelligence in Technical Textiles & Composites – neural networks, genetic algorithms & fuzzy logic”

Scroll down for registration…..

The use of mathematical modelling and computer simulation can vastly improve the quality, efficiency and economic success of textile technology and downstream use in composites. This technology clinic will provide an understanding of how the working principles of the human brain can be mimicked in computer algorithms, forming artificial neural networks (ANNs).


Dieter will provide an introduction to the backpropagation algorithm which is the most widely used type of artificial neural networks. He will demonstrate how to best prepare data and how to apply the backpropagation network to predict properties of technical textiles and composites based on the machine settings and vice versa.

Dieter will also explain how genetic algorithms are used to find optima of complex functions and how they can be used to find innovative solutions which cannot be solved analytically.

Fuzzy logic is also a tool to operate and control technical processes based on imprecise information and imprecise rules. It can be used to convert an expert‘s knowledge into a process control system. The theoretical background behind fuzzy logic will also be covered as well as how to easily design your own model.

Dr Dieter Veit is Vice-Director of the Institut für Textiltechnik of RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
