SAi unveils Oxford University AI project

Software solutions provider SAi has joined forces with Oxford University on a three-year research project with the aim of developing an artificial intelligence (AI) assisted software offering.

Should the project prove successful, this would be the first AI-tool of its kind within the sign industry

Researchers from the university’s Department of Engineering Science will use aggregate data to determine both the common trends and behaviour of sign designers.

Should clear patterns emerge from this research, SAi will then work with the university to develop a first-of-its-kind software to help large-format print providers and sign and display companies when designing signage.

Gudrun Bonte, vice-president of product management at SAi, said: “Businesses are often compromised by the time-consuming design phase, with very little of the costs transferred to their customers.

“With AI, print providers and sign shops may also be able to recruit designers from a wider pool of applicants. This will secure more time and resources to dedicate to increasing their profit margins and revenue streams.”
