Artificial intelligence is one of the most discussed topics of the decade. It influences our behaviour, our interactions and the way we live in general. While people get used to implementation of new technologies in everyday life, large manufacturers already benefit from AI application enormously. 

Industry 4.0 is revolutionizing manufacturing. Major production plants install interconnected systems for automation of monotonous and repetitive tasks increasing their productivity. However, this is only the beginning of the transformation of the production process. Today we are already talking about the fifth industrial revolution, which will take manufacturing to the next level. 

The main aim of the industry 5.0 is to refine the collaboration between robots and humans. In the future, the machines will not replace the people in production, but will complement them. Companies will benefit most from the precision and speed of robots and the intuition and empathy of humans. 

How can it be implemented in real manufacturing conditions? Let’s see it using an example of assembly verification of a microchip. The finished product consists of a plurality of tiny particles, the accuracy of attachment of which cannot be easily controlled by a human. A visual inspection system can precisely detect errors in alignment, missing parts and damages within seconds. It sends a real-time notification to the engineer, who can correct the errors. This is one of many examples of how humans and machines can efficiently work together and complement each other.
