Presentation: Advances in Edge AI – A case study

  • Latest advances in the field of Edge AI.
  • The challenge – to use AI and IOT data to monitor satellite field wells for operational efficiency and production.
  • The solution – a platform solution which runs a machine learning algorithm at the edge to classify DynaCards and enable smart alerts that proactively notify users if anomalies are found when monitoring data.
  • The results – reduced anomaly downtime up to 70% for the connected wells.

Keynote Presentation: From Theory to Practice – Accelerating AI/ML innovation

We are at an inflection point. AI/ML is everywhere. But how can organizations easily go from POC to scale and what decisions are required? How can they make ML accessible to more people? How can they adopt new technology faster? And how can they do it all in a responsible way? In this keynote we will explore key themes like the future state of generative AI, responsible AI, and the democratization of machine learning – and share what we have learned working hand-in-hand with organizations on a global scale to translate AI and ML from theory to practice.
