self-X Artificial Intellgence for European Process Industry digital transformation


The overall objective of s-X-AIPI (self-X Artificial Intelligence for European Process Indsutry digital transformation) is to research, develop, test and experiment an innovative toolset of custom trustworthy self-X AI technologies and applications. 

CARTIF will coordinate the development of the project, in addition to being the leader of work packages WP1 “Coordination and Management” and WP5 “Self-X AI apps prototype demo, user training and performance improvement in process industry”. Moreover, CARTIF will be the technological provider within asphalt use case.



  • Provide existing process indsutries and its workers state of the art AI-based sustainability tools. 
  • Longer useful life of AI apps, deployment more simplified interfaces, without requiring highly skilled workforce, and requiring less specialized maintenance.
  • Achieving an effective deployment of trustworthyAI technologies within process industries, close the gap betweent AI and automation. 


  • More autonomous AI applications will be developed endowed with advanced abilities (called self-X) as these proposals for autonomic ocmputing: Self-Configuration, Self-Optimization, Self-Healing and Self-Protection.
  • All the technologies developed will be validated in four representative industrial use cases of the process industry (asphalt, steel, aluminium and pharmaceutics).

Expected Results

A showcase portfolio of  AI technologies (data sets, AI model and applications):

  • trustworthy integrated into an innovatve open source toolset abaulable for industry and research. 
  • autonomous with self-improving and self-adaptation capabilities to the actual profile of the worker, minimizing human involvement in the AI application development loop. 
  • integrated in 4 actual proces indutries value chains.

4.0 Industry projects:



The ARISE project envisions a near future which aligns with Industry 5.0, prioritising, resilient, sustainable and human-centric work environments. In such a future, companies recognise that investing in industrial human-robot interaction (HRI) is essential for achieving better short- and long-term goals, rather than a cost.
