ABB

Scope: electromagnetism

CSC is developing the Elmer software, an open-source product designed for modelling multiphysical phenomena. The work is being carried out in close cooperation with ABB as part of the Arrowhead Tools project.

The aim of the Arrowhead Tools project is to improve digitalisation and automation solutions for European industries. The project provides design processes, an integration platform and tools for the cost-effective development of digitalisation, interoperability and automation system solutions in various fields of application. Arrowhead Tools, which brings together more than 80 partners across Europe, is Europe’s largest automation and digitalisation design project.

Disior

Scope: mathematical modelling

Disior develops software for clinical medicine that can be used to analyse and model tissue structures in CT and MR images. The Disior algorithms, based on mathematical modelling, extract the correct shape or structure from the medical image. In this way, the software is not dependent on finding familiar structures or comparing them with reference data. The algorithms enable quick, accurate and repeatable measurement for diagnostics and patient-specific, optimized treatment planning.

GROKE Technologies 

Scope: Machine learning (automatic navigation)

Groke is a Finnish start-up that was established in 2019 to develop advanced situational data and navigation solutions for the maritime sector. The company is focusing on the development of an AI-based system that monitors the ship’s environment and provides warnings to the crew and captain. The targets monitored include both fixed and moving objects. In the future, Groke plans to provide more comprehensive operational solutions, including autonomous solutions that reduce human workload.

Inscripta

Scope: Machine learning (speech recognition, training of neural networks))

Inscripta offers speech recognition solutions for health care and other industrial needs. Inscripta’s AI-based speech recognition technology is language agnostic and can be taught to understand any language, dialect or professional language. The current use cases range from the transcription of medical dictations into Finnish to interpretation of Arabic news broadcasts in Egypt and call centre transcription which requires narrowband models optimized for lower sound quality.

Semtec (co-innovation, Tekes)

Scope: electromagnetism, modelling

This software, designed for high-intensity parallel computing with its numerous solvers, can be used to solve many types of complex physics problems. Companies designing electromechanical devices – such as electric motors, generators or transformers – can use modelling to speed up product development and reduce costs.

The SEMTEC project, funded by TEKES and coordinated by VTT, initiated close cooperation between industrial companies, research institutes and universities. The project ran from February 2015 to June 2017. Project participants: CSC, ABB, Kone, Konecranes Global, Trafotek, Sulzer Pumps Finland, Ingersoll-Rand Finland, Skanveir, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Aalto University, Lappeenranta University of Technology and Tampere University of Technology

Speechly

Scope: Machine learning (speech recognition)

Speechly is a Finnish company specialised in speech interfaces that has developed a new type of real-time language comprehension technology. Using CSC’s Puhti supercomputer and supported by Business Finland’s AI Business programme, Speechly was able to make its speech recognition technology even more accurate.

WB-Sails & Deltamarin

Scope: computational fluid dynamics

WB-Sails: Olympic-standard sails

For many years, Helsinki’s WB-Sails has been designing sails for competitive sailing. The results of their hard work can be seen, for example, in the silver medal attained by Finland’s sailing team in the Rio Olympic Games.

WB Sails has used CSC’s Taito supercluster to carry out test runs for sail optimisation.

Deltamarin: Hull shape optimisation

Deltamarin uses CSC’s supercomputers for demanding computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations that help to optimise the shape of a ship’s hull for its particular operating conditions. CFD calculations are used to compare the energy efficiency of different hull shapes.

Traditionally, the power requirement of a ship is assessed through model tests carried out in specially constructed plants.
