Lawrence Technological University and the Stefanini Group are partnering to teach Sophie how to run a factory.

Sophie is a virtual artificial intelligence assistant developed by Stefanini, a $1-billion global technology company specializing in digital solutions with a large office in Southfield. LTU students and faculty are helping Stefanini teach Sophie how to integrate into smart manufacturing environments on LTU’s Southfield campus with self-adaptation and contextual automation, which is made possible by Stefanini partner Rockwell Automation.

This project bridges the gap in student understanding between theoretical and real-world AI implementation. From building architectural design and codes to analyzing Sophie’s mind map flow chart and more, students are interacting with AI implementation in every step of the process, from A to Z.

Designed with an original set of artificial intelligence algorithms and replacing script-based human service with automation, Sophie is trained in voice processing, text interpretation, and self-learning initiation — and is easy to train staff on and implement into a business.
