Epson, Cross Compass partner on AI

A partnership focused on artificial intelligence has begun, with Epson purchasing shares in venture company Cross Compass.

Cross Compass, established in 2015, sees artificial intelligence as a next-generation core technology. It uses deep learning techniques to analyse data, provide AI consulting services, and develop and provide algorithms and neural networks. Cross Compass has earned a particularly strong reputation among its customers in the manufacturing industry.

Cross Compass also provides Manufacturing-IX (M-IX), an integrated development environment (IDE) for the manufacturing industry that enables easy implementation of AI without requiring AI expertise.

Epson, as stated in its Epson 25 Corporate Vision, seeks to transform the future of manufacturing by strengthening its business infrastructure as a manufacturing company, driving advances and efficiency improvements in manufacturing and production control, and innovating manufacturing processes. The development, application and implementation of AI are seen as critical for achieving this vision.

By forging capital and business ties with Cross Compass, Epson seeks to combine the unique technologies of both companies to achieve business synergies that will drive manufacturing process innovations and advances in product intelligence.
