Where's The Value Of AI & IoT?

IoT Applications already benefit from the Power of AI, and the technology is already proven for a huge variety of consumer, business and industrial applications. For example:

- Intelligent transport solutions are already speeding up traffic flows, reducing fuel consumption, prioritizing vehicle repair schedules and saving lives.
- Smart electric grids have already proven more efficient in connecting renewable resources, improving system reliability and billing customers on more granular usage increments.
- Machine-monitoring sensors already diagnose and predict impending maintenance issues, trigger deliveries where and when needed, and prioritize maintenance schedules.
- Data-driven systems are being built into the infrastructure of "smart cities" making it easier for municipalities to run waste management, law enforcement and other programs more efficiently.

Whatever the industry, there are use cases in place to learn from and build on. A report from the McKinsey Global Institute estimates that the IoT could have an annual economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion by 2025 across many different settings, including factories, cities, retail environments and the human body. With AI, the realization of this impact is getting closer everyday – and first movers take the prize.

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.

2:30 – 3:00 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.

3:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Application Of Data Analytics In Water Industry In Collaboration with SCADA

Yokogawa India has successfully implemented the Water Information Management System for the State of Rajasthan, India as part of its Smart Cities Initiatives. The Water Information Management System incorporates smart management dashboard with forecasting capabilities through the use of data analytics in several applications and data sources. The presentation would highlight the key impetus for implementing the Water Information Management System (WIMS) and how the WIMS was achieved through integrating Yokogawa SCADA and SAS® Analytics tools, amongst other applications.
