Artificial Intelligence for a more Sustainable Industry

The industry needs to become more sustainable by leveraging waste reduction, energy savings, and CO2 reduction while increasing efficiency at the same time.

An essential key to work towards these goals is better understanding process data, thus, bringing the ability to analyze and learn from process data as close as possible to the people working with the data: Process engineers, data analysts, and domain experts. This necessitates a scalable and industry-agnostic machine learning technology that they can use straightforwardly without wasting time or building up additional data science skills.

Connecting Industry and Machine Learning

PerfectPattern interconnects a decade of industry experience with game-changing innovations in machine learning built on in-depth research in differential geometry, stochastic processes, functional analysis, and theoretical physics.

This enables us to create machine learning technology that is simple to use and copes exceptionally well with industrial data quality and amounts. Moreover, since it is also very close to real-world industrial applications, it helps close the gap between data acquisition and highly scalable data analytics, enabling more efficient and sustainable industrial productions.

We are supported by strong and passionate partners who bring aivis into various industrial applications and enable sustainable and data-driven decisions.

…and more to come.


PerfectPattern GmbH was founded in 2012 as a Spin-off of the Mathematical Institut of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, supported by the EXIST-Program.

Its roots are in the graphic arts industry, where it started to develop AI-based software to make industrial productions more efficient. The first product sPrint One uses constructive reinforcement learning for print production planning and started to spread into the industry in 2014, followed by Ciphos (converting industry) and Kayros (general production planning).

Ever since a continuous in-depth research in close contact with various industrial applications finally led to the industry-agnostic machine learning technology for process data analytics aivis in 2018, formally known as PYTHIA.

Supported by industry partners like Voith and MPDV, PerfectPattern will continue its journey focusing on its greatest asset, the close combination of excellent industrial process knowledge with superior mathematical and physical skills.
