ABSTRACT: Industrial AI is concerned with the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and related technologies towards addressing real-world use cases in industrial and societal domains and has the potential to transform the world we live in. Industrial AI uses cases can be broadly categorized into the horizontal areas of maintenance & repair, operations & supply chain, quality, safety, design, and end-to-end optimization. etc. and have applications in a variety of domains. In this talk, we present an introduction to Industrial AI, give some real world examples, highlight challenges and lessons learned and point out new research directions and developments.

This talk is part of our series of presentations by industry experts at the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section Corporate Liaison Program (CLP). If you have ideas for future speakers, please email the SCV CLP Chair.
