Northvolt is deploying artificial intelligence to get ahead in the race for new electric-vehicle battery technologies.
Siddharth Khullar, a former AI researcher at Apple, has assembled a team of machine learning experts at Northvolt to accelerate the Swedish battery maker’s development and manufacturing processes. The work may help double the amount of testing the company can do in some areas.
At Northvolt’s main factory in Skellefteå, just below the Arctic circle, the experts have helped implement machine learning and AI-driven sensors and software to bolster production and testing. They’re currently probing how AI can be used to speed up research and development at the Northvolt Labs facility in Västerås.
