Reuse Reduce Recycle AI-based platform for automated and scalable Maker culture in Circular economy
The extensive objective of this RISE programme, called RRREMAKER, is to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) based maker platform for the design and production of handcrafted, rapid prototyped and reconditioned products, based on the availability of used goods and recyclable waste collected, getting inputs from, and connecting together, digital manufacturers and traditional crafts, designers/creative companies and green companies, establishing a new hybrid managing model based on the communities of knowledge, ecodesign and democratization invention, integrating orange, sharing and circular economy.
Design and production
Communities of knowledge
As a disruptive approach, besides being a framework in which the different fields involved can share information, the proposed intelligent computational platform itself will be a main actor in the creative process, by integrating cutting-edge algorithms of generative design, as genetic and superquadric-based algorithms, machine learning classifiers, algorithms for big data, cloud computing, and experimental data will predict structures, forms, materials, colours, ornaments, etc, based on traditional artisan and innovative design parameters, and recycling materials. The platform will also be a “sorting point” to share information between recyclable material collectors and ecodesigners/green manufacturers, connecting them to each other. Also, based on the sales information archived, the platform will be able to generate maps of features of the goods already on the market and automatically propose to the manufacturers changes to make them innovative and more appealing.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101008060.
