Artificial Intelligence concept

Build smart. Deliver smart. Service smart. It’s the new mandate. The good news is that it’s more possible now than ever.

As Industry 4.0 fires on all cylinders, technology is revolutionizing every aspect of nearly every industry. Powered by advanced analytics and ideas that once seemed impossible – cloud computing, robotics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things – the world as we know it is undergoing its greatest changes in a century.

Join us at the IoT Solutions World Congress to learn how the latest innovations in IoT technologies can help organisations in manufacturing, transportation, retail, energy and more:

  • Extract insights from IoT data, regardless of volume, velocity or variety.
  • Use those insights to make sound decisions and take action quickly, even in real time.
  • Create and sustain greater value from IoT data and initiatives.

To enable smarter and safer decisions, rail systems need to enable real-time data streams to be analyzed right at the edge of the network. In this demo, SAS and GE Transportation will demonstrate how an enterprise Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform can harness the power of edge analytics to drive improved outcomes for high value mobile assets, with a focus on improving operational safety in rail systems. By leveraging data across the rail network, on-board devices use SAS® Event Stream Processing to process data in real-time, to enable new insights and improved decisioning.

Transformer monitoring can be the first line of defense for ensuring grid reliability. However, retrofitting transformers to make the grid smart requires placement and connection of many sensors in substations. IR imaging systems can monitor wide areas of the substation without invasively adding sensors to monitor performance breakdown from things like bushing/insulation failures. HPE and SAS will show how IR cameras can monitor transformer temperatures for wear and proper operation.

Artificial “intelligence” can beat humans at certain specialized tasks, and the list keeps growing. The age of AI is in its early days and much innovation is yet to come, but the accuracy, flexibility and scalability of these approaches compound the benefits of AI across many applications and markets. Building AI applications that can be applied anywhere, and not just the cloud environment, is hard to accomplish due to the lack of end to end, development to deployment tools and optimized runtime environments.

Intel® OpenVINO, partnering with advanced AI solution vendors like SAS, fulfills this need and provides hardware optimized runtime environments for your deep learning applications. Immediately available to deploy into various environments, these AI-ready, Intel® IoT RfP Ready Kits provide a wide range of choices in terms of power, performance and cost. This presentation will demonstrate the steps involved in deploying a complete AI application, at the IoT edge.

SAS Analytics in Action

See SAS analytics in action with a holographic mixed reality presentation of a motherboard manufacturing line. This demo shows the process of making a motherboard and how SAS analytics increases yields. SAS IoT for manufacturing is used to merge thousands of product, machine sensor and process physics attributes and then apply powerful analytics for quality and throughput improvement. With SAS Event Stream Processing, the massive volumes of streaming data can be distilled and analyzed in real time to prevent costly failures. By using mixed reality technology, you can see the analytics in the context of the fabrication.

Oliver Schabenberger, PhD
Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer, SAS
Michael Berndorfer
Head of Analytics, Siemens MindSphere

During this session, participants will hear from the leader in advanced analytics, SAS, as Dr. Oliver Schabenberger opens his session with a discussion around the Artificial Intelligence of Things. He will discuss how our world is increasingly driven by data and connectivity – and how we have only seen the tip of the iceberg. The technologies with which we operate in this new economy must be increasingly intelligent and automated. Artificial intelligence plus IoT is the combination that will drive us forward.

He will then be joined on stage by Michael Berndorfer from Siemens MindSphere, an open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution, that connects real things to the digital world through Siemens and opens doors for a rich partner ecosystem. In this portion of the session, they will discuss the value of the IoT partner ecosystem and the importance of analytics in the IoT lifecycle.
