Implementing AI At The Edge: Practical Considerations

Edge computing and IoT are a perfect match for each other. Edge computing is especially impactful for IoT devices and applications that rely on machine learning, and, by extension, large amounts of data, such as facial recognition, intelligent navigation or spatial awareness. Decreased latency can help any situation in which immediate data analysis is required. Edge computing provides a stability and reliability that enables businesses to make and automate data-driven decisions. The edge is where real money is being invested right now, and putting AI there even to get a small sliver of increased productivity will have a massive impact.

1:50 – 2:20 p.m.

Connected Customers: AIoT Enabled Service Model

For years excitement has been building around the Internet of Things (IoT) and its promise to change the way we live and interact with technology. But IoT is a means to an end, and not an end in itself. It has transformed the way businesses operate and interact with customers, even creating new business models.

IoT is, quite simply, the network embedded into our lives. It watches, measures, monitors, feels and captures data through devices and sensors. IoT exists to feed the reactive network. Lead the coming marketing transformation in this age of impulse as we explore how the new network, supports the frictionless, enables widespread deployment and drives IoT adoption.

2:20 – 2:50 p.m.

From Vision To Value – Implementing AI To Drive Innovations

  • Dr Hannah Gardner, Senior Lecturer & Specialist (Nano), Digital Engineering Innovation Centre, Nanyang Polytechnic

The advantages of using AI to enhance and transform capabilities is clear. But how can it be implemented in practice? NYP’s Digital Engineering Innovation Centre works with SMEs and MNCs to develop customized and industry-ready solutions to transform business practices across industries as wide ranging as retail and healthcare to transport, education and manufacturing.

Using an example from advanced manufacturing we will demonstrate how AI solutions can be used to drive innovations on the shop floor. Low-cost sensors coupled with SAS® powered AI are used to equip a CNC milling machine with smart manufacturing capabilities. Creation of a digital twin of the machine allows remote access, a smart monitoring system including predictive maintenance and enhanced training opportunities.

This session will cover how the project was implemented from road-mapping, design and team creation to prototyping, problem solving and roll-out.

2:50 – 3:30 p.m.

Coffee Break / Meet The Experts

3:30 – 4:00 p.m.

Application Of Data Analytics In Water Industry In Collaboration with SCADA
