Recent Advances of Industrial AI in Smart Service Transformation: Case Studies and Lessons Learned
Jay Lee

Wednesday September 8, 18:10 - 19:30 UTC


Industrial AI, Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Cyber Physical Systems are changing the way we design product, manufacturing, and service systems. It is clear that as more sensors and smart analytics software are integrated in the networked industrial products and manufacturing systems, predictive technologies can further learn and autonomously optimize service productivity and performance. This presentation will address the trends of Industrial AI for smart service realization. First, Industrial AI systematic approach will be introduced. Case studies on advanced predictive analytics technologies for different maintenance and service operations will be demonstrated. In addition, issues on data quality for high performance and real-time data analytics in future digital service will be discussed.
