Nano Dimension files for Log Analysis Patent

February 19, 2024

Nano Dimension, Waltham, Massachusetts, USA, has announced the filing of a US patent application titled ‘Large Language Models for Efficient Anomaly Detection in Log Files of Industrial Machines’ (Log Analysis Patent), targeted for real-time data analysis and scalable deployment of the company’s own machines and industrial solutions provided by outside customers.

The Log Analysis Patent is intended to address one of the core challenges for automated anomaly detection: while machine logs are usually a valuable source of information for industrial machines, they are increasingly difficult and expensive to analyse as the underlying machinery has grown in complexity and the volume of log data they contain has multiplied. Furthermore, logs are typically analysed after events have happened and not in real-time, thereby missing the opportunity to apply corrective actions.

In an effort to overcome these problems, Nano Dimension has extended its existing AI patents with a Large Language Model (LLM) that can operate independently of engineering labels. With this, the technology exploits the existing sentiment that is expressed in the machine logs. This enables a fully automated process of AI-powered prediction of manufacturing anomalies before they occur, based either solely on logs or in combination with other machine data and being efficient enough to process billions of log lines.

The Log Analysis Patent follows a related patent that was filed and announced in September 2023. Both patents are equally valuable for the company’s development of Nano Dimension’s products, which are being designed with DeepCube Group’s deep learning-based AI wherever possible, as well as for third-party customers and partners.

Dr Eli David, Chief Technology Officer of AI for Nano Dimension, added, “The filing of the Large Language Models for Efficient Anomaly Detection in Log Files of Industrial Machines patent application is another significant development for Nano Dimension and our customers. A solution is only truly valuable with scalability and this new patent lies at the core of tremendously scalable advanced industrial solutions.”
