COMPANY PROFILE

Accelerate the evolution and revolution of manufacturing

Adacotech Inc. develops and provides proprietary anomaly detection artificial intelligence (AI) products using patented technology from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. Anomaly detection is a crucial process in engineering and manufacturing for quality assurance. The problem lies with the fact that inspection standards are becoming stricter even as the number of detection workers are decreasing. Adacotech Inc. provides a solution to this problem with their anomaly detection AI. Their goal is to leverage their technology and deep operational insights to accelerate the evolution and revolution of manufacturing.

COMPANY STORY

Origin

Adacotech Inc. was incorporated in 2012 with the aim of practical application of its anomaly detection AI, based on "Adaptive Learning Recognition Method Using Higher-Order Local Autocorrelation Feature Extraction Methodology," a technology invented at Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).



Strength

Adacotech Inc.’s proprietary anomaly detection AI products provide close-to-zero false negatives (detecting abnormal objects as normal) with less amount of training data. The products achieve high speed inference and explainability, and are already applied in quality assurance divisions of many manufacturing companies.
