Type of Scholarship: Level 2 - Reserved for students enrolled in Computer Science or Artificial Intelligence Systems Master Programs
Title of Scholarship: Three thematic options are made available:

  • A1: Classification of generic 2D profiles shapes and definition of  a computational solution for a feasible laser cutting  sequence
  • A2: Estimation of the manufacturing time of a generic 3D part on  a laser tube machine, using a hybrid analytical-statistical  approach
  • A3: Automatic positioning of a free-form workpiece in 3D space  for optimal laser processing in a robotized cell

Industrial Tutor: Paolo Benatti – paolo.benatti [at] blmgroup.it
Academic Supervisor: To Be Defined 

Option A1: Classification of generic 2D profiles shapes and definition of  a computational solution for a feasible laser cutting  sequence
Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities, and Expected Outcome:
The computation of an optimal laser cutting path for generic parts is currently completely automatic  in case of metal tubes or profiles having a regular shape (round, square, rectangular, obround…). On the contrary, there is no automatic solution to compute a feasible and sub-optimal cutting path  for profiles having special generic shapes, able to satisfy both the geometrical and the  technological constraints. 
In fact, there are many technical aspects which affect the definition of a reliable cutting trajectory  in case of a generic “special” 2D section (interference between the part and the cutting head, flow  of laser assistance gas on material surface, distance between the nozzle and the part, etc). 
Scope of this Thesis is to study a large collection of existing, manually defined solutions, classify  them and infer the underline rules for a feasible manufacturing, in order to compute an automatic  trajectory path solution for special profiles. 
The approach for the classification and the definition of the operational logic can be either classical, i.e. based on geometrical and topological analysis of the profile shape, or based on  Artificial Intelligence solutions, e.g. Neural Networks of any kind. 
The Expected Outcomes of this activity are: 
- The classification of generic 2D shapes, stored in an existing database filled by expert  technicians, clustering those that have similar cutting logic 
This can be done using an AI solution or a more classical cluster analysis approach, like: o The identification of a finite number of numerical properties of a 2D generic shape,  creating a correspondence between the shape and a point in a hyperspace o The definition of a metric in this hyperspace, where the distance between (the points  corresponding to) two shapes expresses the “similarity” of these two shapes in term of  geometrical and technological constraints (i.e. laser cutting paths have similar logic) - The Development of an algorithm, or an AI solution, able to find the group of shapes in the  cluster which is “nearest” (more similar) to a given shape 
This could lead to the development of a general algorithm, o AI solution, able to automatically  compute a feasible cutting path sequence for any generic 2D shape.
Required Candidate Skills and Prerequisites: 
The candidate should have acquired some theoretical knowledge of: 
- Computational Geometry 
- Cluster analysis, Data mining 
- Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks 
Our technicians will provide training to reach a basic competence on laser cutting technology and  related constraints 
The candidate will work in cooperation with our Software Department, for the definition and  implementation of the system and its underlying algorithms, and with our Application Engineers,  for the analysis of the existing solutions and the tests of the outcomes on a group of new generic  shapes.

Option A2: Estimation of the manufacturing time of a generic 3D part on  a laser tube machine, using a hybrid analytical-statistical approach
Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities, and Expected Outcome:
One of the most important information for users of automatic machines is the estimation of the  manufacturing time of a given piece. 
In fact, the processing time determines the production cost, which in turn allows a preliminary  evaluation of the price at which (the production of) that piece can be offered to the market. A bad estimation of machining time (too high or too low) can lead to the loss of an order or, even  worse, to a lost profit. 
Unfortunately, for some technology (like lasertube machines), the estimation of production time  with an analytical model is not an easy task, because there are many variables that influence the  behaviour of the machine, affecting its efficiency: the creation of a digital-twin machine model is  very complex. 
A possible alternative solution to this problem is the exploitation of a statistical approach: given a  large database of real data, collected from many machines on different parts with different  materials and shapes, manufacturing time could be estimated by the extrapolation of the  production time of “similar” parts, produced in “similar” condition (e.g: same machine model and  capability). 
Scope of this Thesis is to combine in a hybrid approach a preliminary geometrical analysis of a  3D part model, matching its geometrical features with a large database of real production data on  a statistical base. 
The candidate shall define some appropriate indicators to be automatically extracted by a  geometrical analysis of a generic 3D part (like the shape of tube profile, the number of cutting  geometries, the total cutting length, etc) and use these indicators to find the most similar parts  produced in the past on the same material and obtain a range of min-max estimated production  time, computed on the basis of their real production time. 
The approach for the classification of the parts can be either classical, i.e. based on geometrical  and topological analysis of the part itself, or based on Artificial Intelligence solutions, e.g. Neural  Networks of any kind.
The Expected Outcomes of this activity are: 
- The classification of the parts stored in an existing database filled by expert technicians,  clustering those having “similar” features 
This can be done using an AI solution or a more classical cluster analysis approach, like: o The definition of a finite number of indicators which identify the most important features  of a given part (imported as a 3D model), creating a correspondence between the part and a point in a hyperspace 
o The definition of a metric in this hyperspace, where the distance between (the points  corresponding to) two parts expresses the “similarity” of these two parts in term of production time 
- The Development of an algorithm, or an AI solution, able to find the group of parts in the cluster which is “nearest” (more similar) to any given part and the computation of an estimated  production time range (min-max) for this part.
Required Candidate Skills and Prerequisites: 
The candidate should have acquired some theoretical knowledge of: 
- Computational Geometry 
- Cluster analysis, Data mining 
- Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks 
Our technicians will provide training to reach a basic competence on laser cutting technology and  related constraints 
The candidate will work in cooperation with our Software Department, for the definition and  implementation of the system and its underlying algorithms, and with our Application Engineers,  for the analysis of the existing solutions and the tests of the outcomes on a group of new generic  parts.

Option A3: Automatic positioning of a free-form workpiece in 3D space  for optimal laser processing in a robotized cell
Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities, and Expected Outcome:
The manufacturing of a generic freeform workpiece using laser processes, like cutting and  welding, is strongly dependent on the position and orientation of the part in the working space of  the robotized cell. 
In fact, to have a feasible laser process, each point along the cutting/welding path must be  reachable by the laser tool with the correct orientation, respecting physical and technical  constraints, like: 
- Reachability by the tool (depending on the robot kinematics) 
- Crossing of singularity points  
- Interference among any of the objects in the cell 
- Entanglement of cables and pipes 
- Constant speed of the tool along its path (with respect to the technological process speed) 
This is especially important for anthropomorphic robots, whose reachability space is not regular  and (unfortunately) not very precise in absolute. 
Scope of this Thesis is to map the space in the cell in term of reachability and precision and define  a logic to match this space against the workpiece processing path, in order to compute the  minimum number of positions/orientations of the part which allows the end effector of the robot to  follow every point of the toolpath, respecting the aforementioned constraints. 
The Expected Outcomes of this activity are: 
- The preliminary analysis of the reachability space of a given robotized cell - The analysis of a certain number of real parts already processed by expert technicians, with  the aim to generalize the logic behind their position and reposition in cell space. This can be done using an AI solution or a more classical geometrical approach. - The Development of an algorithm, or an AI solution, able to compute the minimum set of  workpiece positions which allow full toolpath laser manufacturing
Required Candidate Skills and Prerequisites: 
The candidate should have acquired some theoretical knowledge of: 
- Computational Geometry 
- Robotics and Kinematics 
- Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks 
The candidate will work in cooperation with our Software Department, for the definition and  implementation of the system and its underlying algorithms, and with our Application Engineers,  for the analysis of the existing solutions and the tests of the outcomes on a group of new 3D  workpieces.

The proposed topics have been summarized to fit the form provided by UNITN. Interested students  will be able to better explore the proposals with the company managers involved, in order to satisfy  training needs and expectations.

Title of Scholarship: Control system for a magnetic robot for coating steel surfaces such as inside pipes or vertical surfaces of ships and tanks
Industrial Tutor: ALESSANDRO CONDINI - a.condini [at] elixe.com
Academic Supervisor: LUIGI PALOPOLI - luigi.palopoli [at] unitn.it

Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities and Expected Outcome:
MPR srl and ELIXE srl are mechanical companies that study and manufacture machines for applying a polymeric coating for metals inside pipes and cylinders, operating in domestic and foreign markets. 
Within the field of metal protection, robotic applications have developed mainly in surface cleaning and internal vision of pipes. Automation in the application of painting is still a little-studied field. Artificial intelligence still needs to be addressed.
In the realization of remote systems that apply protective paint, there are two areas in which MPR is interested in studying new solutions: 1) inside tubes even of small diameter (up to 40mm) and 2) on large vertical surfaces such as ships or tanks. 
In both cases, it is necessary to define a system that analyzes the surface to determine the level of cleanliness and suitability for the application of the paint, then applies the paint, and finally verifies the quality of the protective coating. 
The system must be autonomous based on existing magnetic robots. Still, it must be scaled and adapted to be battery-powered, equipped with a motor for moving, a vision system, and a tank connected to the paint dispenser. The process must be controlled to make the processing and the return to the charging and resting station.
The company can supply the mechanical part while the electronics and software architecture must be defined. Coordinating a mechanical study for the actuating device would also be interesting to optimize the weight and dimensions.
Required Candidate Skills and Prerequisites:
The candidate should be a student in the AIS Master, who is taking the intelligent robot specialization. He/she should have a good background in robotics from the previous education levels, or includes at least the following courses: 1. Introduction to robotics, 2. Robot Planning and its applications, 3. Optimisation and learning for robot control.
Moreover, the candidate will have to deal with the vision and control system of the machining operations together with the movement of the machine. A certain practicality is required to contribute to the execution of the electronics and the realization of the mechanics.

Title of Scholarship: Building Italian chat-bot for IT Help Desk by using transfer learning from ChatGPT and similar
Industrial Tutor: Paolo Ranzi - paolo.ranzi [at] gpi.it
Academic Supervisor: To be defined
Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities, and Expected Outcome:
TITLE: Building Italian chat-bot for IT Help Desk by using transfer learning from ChatGPT and similar
DESCRIPTION:
The project aims to build a custom-made chat-bot. Such a chat-bot should leverage the Information Technology (IT) Help Desk’s data-set owned by GPI. The IT Help Desk is specialized in troubleshooting  computer-related problems experienced by GPI's clients. Since the Help Desk is already running from several years by now, it has cumulated more or less 750000 records (called "tickets") about either common or less common computer-related problems. All tickets are written in Italian. Each ticket may be an email exchange between client and IT expert or a very short summary of the problem written by the IT technician. 
METHOD:
The idea was to use an open source Large Language Models (LLMs) like LLaMA (Touvron et al. 2023) or GPT4All etc. as a backbone. By fine tuning/transfer learning the LLM will then be fed with data coming from the Italian data-set.  
HURDLES TO OVERCOME: 
- test whether the LLM generalizes to Italian data;
- although some tickets have a written step-by-step solution to the problem, some tickets are very succint (thus, no description of the steps undertaken for solving the problem); 
- altough the interaction between client lamenting a problem and IT technician may happen as a telephone call, no calls were recorded. This means that a step-by-step solution taught by phone by the IT technican to the client is lost. Therefore we have to leverage the textual data only;
GOAL:
The ideal chat-bot should solve by itself at least 10 % of calls to the IT Help Desk. Indeed, we believe that at least 10 % of calls are simple and redundant IT problems (e.g. how to install new driver for the printer). If this works, this can save resources to GPI since some IT technicians of the Help Desk may work for other departments, instead of being busy at the Help Desk.  
SCHEDULE (ROUGH ESTIMATE):
- month 1: read literature about anomimization and pseudo anonimization (see link below for an example); find and test optimal and GDPR-compliant software or procedure for anonimizing data-set;
- month 2: pre-processing data-set; find the right open source LLM;
- month 3: build the Deep Learning model (by transfer learning/fine-tuning) and train it; 
- month 4: further iterations of the model and further training; test and validate the whole pipeline with unseen data;
- month 5: once the pipeline is stable, provide some help to developers with the deployment;  
- month 6: writing thesis, documentation and polish code;

Title of Scholarship: Creating version 2 regarding a Speech Emotion Recognition AI Agent
Industrial Tutor: Paolo Ranzi - paolo.ranzi [at] gpi.it
Academic Supervisor: To be defined

Short Description of Internship and Thesis Activities, and Expected Outcome:
TITLE: Creating version 2 regarding a Speech Emotion Recognition AI Agent
DESCRIPTION:
In GPI version 1 of a Speech Emotion Recognition AI agent is already running. In simple words, such and AI agent is able to detect 5 human emotions from human audio. The data-set consists in 9 Hrs of clean audio in Italian. The data-set is proprietary since it is owned by GPI. This AI agent is already implemented during the telehealth sessions offered by GPI. A telehealth session is a videocall between clinician and patient. The clincian can see on his screen in real-time those 5 human emotions in real-time. Every 4 secs an emotion is printed on the clinician screen. Whenever the patient stops talking, the AI agent stops itself automatically. The goal is to push such AI agent to a more advanced version (version 2).    
METHOD:
Version 1 is based on the Deep Learning model developed in Patel et al. 2021, with the difference that a Variational AutoEncoder (VAE) has not been implemented. In a nutshell, version 1 takes an average of the 
Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficient (MFCC) spectrogram. This is particularly useful since the deployment of the AI agent shows a 300 ms delay from the end of the 4 secs and the print of the emotion on the screen. Thanks to such an average, the AI agent performs almost real-time. The accuracy (computed against 30 % test-set) of version 1 is already around 84 %. 
The challenge is to see whether the AI agent may be pushed towards version 2. In other words a VAE must be implemented. Further, the analysis of the whole spectrogram by using computer vision techniques and tranfer learning (see Luna-Jiménez et al. 2021) should be implemented, as well. These improvements should increase overall accuracy. 
HURDLES TO OVERCOME: 
- the version 2 (namely, the version computing the whole spectrogram) may be slower, thus attracting complaints from end users (i.e. clinicians);
GOAL:
Push the Speech Emotion Recognition AI Agent from version 1 (average of the spectrogram) towards version 2 (whole spectrogram). 
SCHEDULE (ROUGH ESTIMATE):
- month 1-2: read literature about anomimization and pseudo anonimization (e.g. Qian et al. 2017); read relevant literature about Speech Emotion Recognition; 
- month 3: pre-processing data-set; build the Deep Learning model (by transfer learning/fine-tuning) with VAE included; train it; 
- month 4: further iterations of the model and further training; test and validate the whole pipeline with unseen data;
- month 5: once the pipeline is stable, provide some help to developers with the deployment;  
- month 6: writing thesis, documentation and polish code;
