Nations such as the UK, United States and China are leading investment levels in AI and showing increased commitment toward AI strategies, projects and solutions that are leading to positive change in job creation, productivity and long-term economic competitiveness.
In the context of the energy industry and its associated verticals, AI investment, innovation and implementation are becoming core considerations when it comes to climate change enablement. Power outages and predictive maintenance, oil field and offshore IoT, supply and demand forecasting, grid decentralization and balancing services are some of the investment areas garnering serious attention.
Alberto Todeschini, PhD, discussed:
• The distinction between narrow AI and general AI
• The development history and future development of artificial neural networks
• The opportunities for AI and remote sensing from satellites and drones
• The opportunity for hyper-personalisation being applied to specific problems for people and organisations
Note – this webinar took place on Thursday 29 April 2021.
