Recent Advances of Industrial AI Augmented CPS for Highly Connected and Complex Industrial Systems

Abstract:

AI is one of the most powerful technologies of our time, with broad applications with capabilities to predict the invisible problems to avoid, and ultimately to create a worry-free and resilient system. According to a recent study report from National Academy of Engineering, the key issues to successfully develop and deploy AI for industrial applications including the lack of good quality of data as well as lack of systematic approach in developing and validating AI. This presentation will give an introduction about recent advances of Industrial AI for highly complex engineering systems. First, Industrial AI systematic approach and non-traditional machine learning techniques will be introduced. Case studies on lessons learned from different industries including semiconductor manufacturing, wind farm, electrification, and healthcare/medical systems, etc. will be given. In addition, issues data quality and training industrial AI skills through data foundry for high performance and real-time data analytics in future talents will be discussed.
