Welding is a critical activity for manufacturing. The threshold for welding error is the bare minimum. Build an ML model to predict welding defects in the materials by developing algorithms using process parameters such as ambient temperature, welding travel speed, etc.

You can also perform advanced analytics on welder performance using machine data and welder details.

Round 1: Abstractsubmission
Participants have to submit a proposal (not to exceed 3 pages) based on the work done so far and also a survey of relevant techniques.

Round 2: Final Submission and Presentation at Techfest
