ExaWizards Starts to Provide Robotic AI “COREVERY”
〜Planning to Exhibit COREVERY Technology at Its Booth during the International Robot Exhibition 2019〜
ExaWizards Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Ko Ishiyama; hereinafter, “ExaWizards”) started to provide its robotic AI “COREVERY” on Wednesday, December 12. The company also plans to exhibit COREVERY technology at its booth during the International Robot Exhibition 2019 (iREX2019), which will take place at the Tokyo Big Sight from Wednesday, December 18 to Saturday, December 21.
☑ Giving intelligence to robots through the power of AI 〜Realizing motions adapted to situations, states, physical properties, etc. which could formerly not be implemented through programming〜
Up to now, ExaWizards has promoted technological development aimed at allowing all robots to complement human work as the working population decreased as the result of a super aging society. And the company developed multimodal AI, which lets robots take appropriate actions based on different kinds of data obtained from various sensors substituting for the senses of sight, touch, and hearing. This multimodal AI enables robots to perform highly difficult work in which irregularly shaped and soft objects are handled, and examples of such work include the weighing of liquid and powder, assembly work that requires the adjustment of force applied, the arrangement of salad on a plate, and the folding of towels.
COREVERY, which ExaWizards started to provide today, enables users to let robots learn motions in a way that suits the situation in which they are used and execute such motions even if they do not have knowledge of AI and programming.

☑ One characteristic of COREVERY is that users can let robots learn various motions even manually and improve the accuracy of their motions by continuing to learn them while reviewing them.
１. With COREVERY, which does not require knowledge of AI and programming, users can let robots learn various motions even manually
COREVERY uses AI-based control so that users enable robots to learn motions even manually. This enables users to set motions easily even if they do not have knowledge of AI and programming.
２. COREVERY allows recognition of situations, states, physical properties, etc., enabling robots to take actions that are flexible to a certain extent
In weighing liquid, for example, COREVERY can reproduce a job that was learned through a beaker using a different type of container (such as cups) and a job that was learned through glycerol using a different type of liquid (such as oil). Thus, highly flexible actions can be taken.
３. COREVERY, which encourages robots to continue learning work while reviewing it, allows them to approach more ideal motions if they are used repeatedly
COREVERY enables robots to approach ideal motions as they continue to be used. One example is that they can improve the accuracy of work and reduce working hours by learning motion data continuously.
☑Examples of utilization of COREVERY: It can be effectively used on various occasions such as the substitution of simple work and the reproduction of skilled workers’ motions
１. Substitution for simple work (such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics)
Substituting simple work such as continuously shaking a test tube for mixing
２. Inspection by drones (inspection and maintenance
Enabling detection of rust, fragments of cement, etc. at factories and construction sites, using drones
３. Holding, cooking, and arranging on plates (food)
Enabling to hold irregularly shaped pieces of meat, fish, etc., cook them, and arrange cooked ones on plates。
４. Reproduction of skilled workers’ motions (manufacturing)
Using robots to reproduce skilled workers’ motions such as polishing and grinding
５. Substitution for work in a dangerous environment (industrial waste disposal sites)
Automating work in a dangerous environment such as the treatment of large amounts of industrial waste by cranes
６. Cultivation and harvesting of agricultural products (food)
Realizing appropriate cultivation in the same way as realized by farmers taking the growth of crops into consideration
