Future-Ready Innovation and Intelligent Operation Suite
CITIC Telecom CPC has been a technology-driven digitalization enabler for various industries for over two decades. It has successfully designed, integrated, and deployed winning solutions at scale to address enterprise needs. They include:
- AI and Computer Vision Capabilities to empower Recognition and Access Management
Vehicle & Visitor Access Management System. It improves access rights management, streamlines office operations, and integrates records for holistic operational insight and decisions. Investigating incidents and analyzing trends can be done quickly. The Access Control Management System is a video/object analytics-based solution that associates vehicle recognition data with those in the database records for granting vehicle and visitor access permission within 3 seconds.
- Integrated Intelligence Technologies to enhance Automated Operational Systems
- Automated In-line Quality Inspection with AI and Computer Vision. The comprehensive suite of intelligent solutions uses computer vision and image analysis technologies to help frontline workers rapidly and efficiently identify raw materials and defects or deviations from specifications and improves quality control.
Use Case: A globally-renowned steel manufacturer uses AI-based visual inspection, integrated sensors, visual computing, machine learning, and advanced algorithm tools to detect defective steel product quality by analyzing an unstructured image and big data models.
- Collaborating with the Service Teams using AI-AR Remote Assistance. The award-winning solution combines data visualization, computer vision techniques, and machine-learning algorithms can create 2D/3D diagrams with instruction guides for field workers. It helps local-global expert teams, such as local frontline engineers, regional field technicians, and system operators, to collaborate with subject matter experts in real-time to resolve together–no matter how far apart they are.
Use case: Using AI-AR Remote Hand, an MNC customer headquarters in Hong Kong provided on-site training to their local workers and real-time guidance to field technicians to repair complex factory machinery in the Caribbean region.
- Eliminating Language Barriers and Improving Data Entry Process with AI-OCR Data Capture Solution. The well-trained AI-OCR Solution captures and “reads” document data using Natural Language Processing (NLP), Big Data analytics, machine learning (ML) and advanced CORS technology. It eliminates the need for time-consuming manual data entry by automatically scanning medical records, invoices or designated documents and intuitively performing field mapping on data collection. It integrates approval workflows more efficiently by learning unique languages and specific formats based on different layouts.
Use case: A China-based hospital group used the AI-powered OCR data capture solution to improve patient medical records’ filing and indexing, standardize specific field requirements, increase accuracy rates, and eliminate data entry workflow bottlenecks.
Use case: CITIC Telecom CPC used AI-OCR solutions, which integrate with COR, NLP and Blockchain technologies, to capture Chinese and English invoices for in-house staff expenses and vendors’ billing systems, simplifying and automating the entry system records. The company plans to extend this capability to other languages to fully comprehend the Smart Ledger system.
- Innovative AI-enabled Computer Vision Solutions reinvent enterprise business values
- Managing Smart Warehouse and Supply Chain in an even more intelligent way. An innovative Machine Learning model using AI, Big Data analytics, and Deep Learning methods to identify, locate and count objects within 95 milliseconds with 99% accuracy. Real-time access to quality data provides better visibility throughout the supply chain process.
- Future of Cybersecurity in a Multiverse Era – “AI-Powered Visual Security”
- A Game Changer reinvents the “Seeing is Believing” security model, protecting enterprises from sophisticated malware with visible tracing, integrating AI algorithm, a weakly supervised regularization algorithm, visual computing, and a neural network to transform datasets into graphic images and map potential malware, boosts 10x to 100x faster than conventional techniques.
