ARM Hub collaborates to help SMEs utilise AI


Brisbane’s Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub is partnering with data and AI platform, Databricks to deliver AI intelligence to SME manufacturers.

The AI, robotics and design-for-manufacture hub’s new alliance will enable smarter decision-making through affordable, safe, relevant and always up-to-date data and AI solutions.

ARM Hub Founder and CEO Professor Cori Stewart said: “Our work with Databricks has already enabled ARM Hub to build the lakehouse infrastructure and provide AI-as-a-service to Australian manufacturing businesses.

“We are proud world-leaders in the services we provide using Databricks – we are ready to support industry to succeed on the global stage in an era of generative AI.”

Professor Stewart said the alliance would be transformative in deep technology innovation and modernising manufacturing.

“We are harnessing opportunities to collaborate with our partners to embed Australian deep tech companies and manufacturing businesses in high-value global supply chains.”

Databricks provides a unified data, analytics, and AI platform that simplifies and enhances the processing of data and the application of AI and machine learning models, according to ARM Hub.

With its data intelligence engine, the platform can understand the semantics of enterprise data unique to each organisation, allowing companies to build their AI models on their private enterprise data.

ARM Hub will leverage the Databricks Data Intelligence Platform as part of its new AI-as-a-service, which facilitates easier adoption of data and AI for the manufacturing sector.

Manufacturers can integrate and streamline data such as IoT sensor data, machine logs, ERP systems and customer information for a holistic view of the business in real-time, helping with decision-making.

The Vice President and Country Manager for Databricks in ANZ Adam Beavis said: “With solution accelerators that can speed up results, manufacturing companies can leverage purpose-built guides in LLM models, predictive maintenance, supply chain optimisation, and many more.

“Our partnership with ARM Hub represents a pivotal step toward integrating AI with other advanced technologies and solutions to create smarter, more efficient manufacturing businesses.”
