Featured Presentation
Intelligent Edge in Industrial IoT

Artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) are unique on their own, but what makes them even more interesting is where they intersect.

In this talk, Dr. Xiao Yang and Kevin Stanley demonstrate how leverages AWS Cloud Vision to digitize analog gauge data and enable automated readings from a remote location through the power of AI.

This powerful solution alleviates the need to dispatch a crew to read gauges manually and significantly extends the life of aging industrial equipment.

A wide variety of industries, including utilities, manufacturing, and energy can benefit from:

  • Remote diagnosis of problems
  • Optimized maintenance timelines
  • Failure prediction and prevention of outages
  • Ability to prolong the life of aging industrial equipment
  • Ability to easily calculate return on investment of new hardware
