    Asset models are everywhere — duplicated, difficult to maintain, and overlapping — mainly on-premises. Over the operational lifetime of an asset, this model will continually change, evolve, and grow. As the number of connected devices grows out current processes, to maintain these models will be unsustainable. We need to think about how to converge our current systems and processes to establish one source of truth. And maintain it. Focus on practical steps now! Eventually these asset models will drive predictive models, Machine Learning (ML), and Digital Twin. Start the journey towards performant analytics and Digital Twin.

    CNBC Panel

    The evolution of an aging US electrical system has not come without its problems. Society is beginning to demand an energy system that focuses on greater resilience, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability – but can their demands be met? Digital technologies and innovations in the energy sector like microgrids, net metering, and stand-alone systems are all aimed toward effectively managing energy needs and costs, and may hold the key. Yet, with so much innovation, why are blackouts still happening? This session will aim to highlight the problems stopping the US from achieving a sustainable energy system to meet society’s new demands, and how innovation can help.

    Today we stand on the brink of the fourth industrial revolution where Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) wireless and mobile technologies, decentralized data processing in the cloud, and artificial intelligence (AI) will allow manufacturers to produce more cost-effectively and with fewer human interventions. IIoT is here and the goal is simple: increase productivity and efficiency. Along with thoughtful plant design, there is considerable potential for further automation benefits through implementation of technologies such as artificial intelligence for decision-making based on sensor-data, machine learning, and augmented and virtual reality. To some extent, the future is already here. So where do we go next? In this session, we'll discuss how IIoT impacts business productivity and efficiency today.

    To go from Anomaly detection to Predictive, you have to classify Anomaly. What does this anomaly in the data mean? Is it easily explained by the physics or the mode of operation, or is it an imminent failure? Only a domain expert can actually classify this anomaly effectively. Lots of analytics engines (IBM / GE / Google, etc.) will infer an outcome from a statistical sample. Sometimes this is enough. In most cases it’s not. Let’s bring our people on this journey. We need data scientist, yes — but we need engineering veterans to explain what going on and embed that knowledge.
